Usher is amazed by Justin Bieber's versatility.

The `OMG' singer - who has mentored the 16-year-old star since he was discovered on video-sharing website YouTube - has praised the `Baby' hitmaker's "versatility" and thinks he offers much more than other pop artists.

He said: "Justin Bieber is someone I'm not just endorsing as a talent, he's someone I'm nurturing as an artist.

"He's my artist. He's an incredible talent. He's a young man who I think represents all of what's needed in this time to be an artist and be successful. You look at the different genres of music now, and it's either electric dance or acoustic sound - you've got the Jonas Brothers, and you've got Lady Gaga. I think that Justin's able to do all of it - because he plays piano, he plays guitar, he plays drums, he can dance - so a lot of it is easy to pick when I introduce a different movement to him."

Justin, 16, is delighted that Usher has taken such an interest in helping with his career and always listens to his advice.

He told In Touch Weekly magazine: "I'm very blessed to have him, because he's been through it all - he basically started at my age.

"I have this ability to ask him questions. He told me to stay humble and stay grounded, which is very important."
