Jessie J has revealed she will be helping 'X Factor' judge Tulisa Contostavlos pick the groups who will make it to the live shows
Jessie J is to be a guest mentor on 'The X Factor'.
The 'Price Tag' hitmaker will be joining Tulisa Contostavlos in Greece later this month for the Judges' Houses stage of the competition, and will help the N-Dubz star pick the best three groups to progress to the live shows.
On twitter one of Jessie's fans wrote: "WOW @jessiejofficial appearing on UK XFactor as guest mentor with Tulisa?!? (sic)"
To which the pop star replied: ";) yeeaahh man! (sic)"
The 23-year-old singer - who is currently recovering from a broken foot - has replaced rapper Tinie Tempah, who admitted he wont be appearing on 'X Factor' this year because he is heading back to the US to work on his next album.
He said: "I'm not going to be here for that but really wanted to do it. I was meant to be with Tulisa."
Louis Walsh is reportedly set to be joined by 80s pop icon Sinitta at his house when they pick the over-25s, and Kelly Rowland is thought to be linking up with either Usher or P. Diddy as she takes charge of the girls.
Gary Barlow will look after the boys in Los Angeles and will be joined by his Take That bandmate Robbie Williams - who has appeared on 'The X Factor' several times.
