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.

clearly the people at XFactor are just backing up their judge choice in Britney Spears. Think about it, it makes total sense.

- They have a judge (Britney) judging talent when she just lip syncs all the time.
- They have to back it up with now having a teenaged 'mentor' (Bieber) who has zero talent and is the joke of the industry.

Of course a teenager should totally be a mentor with all their years of experience...

Of course a judge should be able to sing live...

exactly.
