To the delight of shrieking 11-year-old girls everywhere, E! News is reporting that Canadian-born pop phenom Justin Bieber will be appearing on The X Factor when Simon Cowell’s TV talent show returns for a second season.
Bieber will reportedly serve as a mentor for Antonio “L.A.” Reid’s team, and will advise contestants after the show winnows down the field on competitors to 16.
Bieber confirmed his participation to his gazillion Twitter followers: “long day but great day. @LA_Reid @ScooterBraun just like old times! Thanks”
The X Factor will premiere September 12 on CTV and Fox.
