Justin Bieber is going to be a mentor on 'X Factor'
The X Factor is really going all out to wrest the title of most-watched primetime talent competition, because they've apparently convinced Justin Bieber to be a celebrity mentor. You can just about wrap up girls aged 8 to 20 now.
TMZ says L.A. Reid got Biebs to team up with him as one of the four celebrity mentors to work with the judges. Bieber was spied heading to Hollywood to work with contestants on Monday, the site says.
There's no word who the other mentors will be, but really, who cares? Reid scored a coup that makes American Idol's signing of Mariah Carey as a judge look like a sideshow.
