Justin Bieber

Tapped for 'X Factor'

8/28/2012 7:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0828_tmz_justin_bieber_xfactorSimon Cowell has a new enemy ... Justin Bieber -- 'cause the pop star has teamed up with rival "X Factor" judge L.A. Reid to become a celebrity mentor on the upcoming season of the show.

TMZ has learned ... Bieber agreed to be one of 4 celebrity mentors assigned to one of the 4 judges ... Simon, L.A., Britney Spears and Demi Lovato.

Bieber agreed to help out L.A.'s squad ... and yesterday, Justin went to a home in the Hollywood Hills to dish out some quality advice to the contestants.

It's unclear which celebrities have been tapped to help out the other judges -- but good luck doing better than Bieber.

What's the intention of LA Reid? Humiliating his own team, telling to the over 25 years old singers that doesn't matter how good they are they will never have so much money as this stupid spoiled talentless kid?

Like he would recognize talent if he saw it. He actually thinks he's talented!

this is a blessing for Simon's team. Brit will go crazy, Demi will talk about a purple dinosaur, Beiber will talk about how to look like a girl and how hard it is during puberty and trying to get street cred, so Simon should be able to post some real information.

Seriously, what the hell does this kid Bieber know about anything. He sucks as a singer. Looks like he's 2 years old. For God's sake he's still in diapers, and he's actually going to be a judge? This show has disaster written all over it. I don't see the X-factor lasting even this season. LOL What a frigin joke...ewww

No wonder no one watches X factor! They have no talent through the contestants and absolutely no talent within the judges. They can't sing without the help of electronics and they are the ones judging. Simon Cowell is certainly desperate to be on TV. Give it up!

Since yesterday is already confirmed that Nick Jonas will be helping Demi mentoring the 12-17 group. This site has become a third hand source of news.

This show is already sounding like a looser show. Let me get this straight the 4 high paid judges who are suppose to be the top of there field in the music industry needs 4 new high paid music people to help them mentor. This show is a big fat LOSER.
