Teen heart throb Justin Bieber
Justin Bieber with CEO of Epic Records LA Reid
has dethroned Simon Cowell for the celebrity judge on the 2nd Season of X Factor USA
. The 18 year old will team up with judge LA Reid in the TV series, which had a disappointing first season.
Earlier yesterday the pop sensation was seen shooting on the roof of a building in LA for the talent show along with Epic Records CEO Reid wearing a white T-Shirt and glares. Justin was joined by some of this year’s X Factor over 25s group. Justin posed for the photographers with his usual style and tweeted for his millions of fans about this latest venture. ‘Long day but great day. @LA_Reid @ScooterBraun just like old times! thanks,’ the star tweeted.

Justin Beiber and Reid go a long way as it was Reid who signed up Bieber to Island Def Jam when he was the chairman of Island Def Jam Music Group. After staying with the organisation for seven years, Reid left Def Jam in March 2011 to join the X Factor and in 3 months time became the chairman/CEO of Epic Records. Guess it was time for Bieber to return the favor.
Justin had made a guest appearance in the first season finale of X Factor and Bieber is still signed up with the Island Def Jam Music Group.
Justin Bieber isn’t the only one Reid has managed to rope in to come for the TV Show. Last year even Rihanna who was signed up for the same Music Group also came to the X Factor show to evaluate the contestants and even performed her hit numbers at the show in a later episode. With Justin Bieber signing up for the new season, the TV series will definitely see some fresh guest stars light up the stage.
It is learnt that Demi Lovato has enlisted the help of her fellow former Disney star Nick Jonas. ”Demi and Nick go way back, Demi’s pretty good friends with all the Jonas brothers and she even brought Nick out as a special guest on her tour recently”, revealed a source close to both the singers.

It is still yet unknown who will take the place of the host as after Steve Jones was dropped even that place is up for grabs. The news floats with names like Glee star Kevin McHale, Mario Lopez, George Clooney’s girlfriend Stacy Keibler, Kelly Osbourne and Khloe Kardashian.
When asked about this oppurtunity, Khloe said, “‘I’m a big fan of The X Factor. I’ve always wanted to do hosting or talk show hosting, so it’s definitely something that I would love to do and would be honoured to do.’ She is one of the most likely candidates who could host the show.
But all is well for Justin and this season will hopefully be a smashing hit. Congo Justin!
