Will.i.am is X Factor Mentor
Black Eyed Peas star Will.i.am is to help singer and new judge Britney Spears’ protégés during the judges’ home rounds on The X Factor, according to reports.
He will act as mentor to Spears’s selected competitors in the talent show’s second season, which starts today, Wednesday, on Fox at 8pm ET/PT.
The 37-year-old from Los Angeles is not a stranger to reality TV competitions, having previously coached on the British version of The Voice.
He becomes the newest and last mentor to sign up for the show. He joins Nick Jonas, mentor to Demi Lovato’s acts, and Justin Bieber, who’s helping L.A. Reid, while Simon Cowell’s contestants are getting guidance from Marc Anthony.
Will.i.am and Britney Spears also joined forces on a track on the former’s new solo album, #willpower, which is out in stores this fall.
We’re excited about X Factor hitting our screens again!
