One day after it was revealed that Nick Jonas was going to be joining his longtime friend and former “Camp Rock” co-star Demi Lovato on “The X Factor” this coming fall, we now have some news that is even more surprising — the show has booked Justin Beiber for their judges’ houses stage of the competition.
There are some photos floating around the internet of Justin working with L.A. Reid — one of the men responsible for first signing him –while cameras crews for the show stood nearby. Meanwhile, Reid also posted the following message on Twitter that made it very clear just what was going on:
“Great day with my guys! @justinbieber @scooterbraun @TheXFactorUSA”
The heavy star power for these judges should not be that surprising — after all, Reid brought in Rihanna for his judges’ houses show last year, and Cowell was going to bring in Mariah Carey before a hurricane on the east coast limited her ability to fly. Bieber may be young, but he is the perfect choice to work with Reid here for a number of reasons — namely that he knows what is successful in America right now, has done some management himself with Carly Rae Jepsen, and also knows what it takes to rise out of nothing to become a superstar.
There is no confirmation just yet on who Cowell and Britney Spears are working with this year — but we have to believe that it is going to be someone big considering some of the contacts that they have. (Watch Simon bring in One Direction, as rumors do have him mentoring the groups this year.)
Do you think that Bieber will be a help to Reid during his brief time filming the show with him? To find out more about Lovato and Jonas, be sure to read the story over here.
