Usher has been revealed as one of the celebrity mentors for this year's X Factor and he'll join Kelly Rowland at the "judges' houses" phase of the show.
"Kelly has a lot of friends in high places but has asked Usher to be her wingman," a source revealed.
"He loves the show as he's been on it a few times and gets on well with Simon Cowell and the top brass." It's been reported that Tinie Tempah will be joining Tulisa or Gary Barlow to help pick their finalists for the live shows.
According to Billboard, the 10-song set is slated to drop this spring on Columbia Records and features an all-star lineup including R.
Kelly (“Make the World Go Round”), Cee Lo Green (“Light Up the Night”), Usher, Mary J.
Blige, Ne-Yo, John Legend, Estelle (“When the Stars Come Out”), Passion Pit, Kelly Rowland, and Chromeo.
Robin Thicke and Jessie J appear on the lead single “Calling All Hearts,” for which a video was shot last year.
But Usher has an extra string to his bow in that he's discovered and managed world famous acts before.
"He knows a thing or two about finding new talent," the source added to The Sun.
