Justin Bieber will feature in his own one-off ITV1 special featuring performances of his biggest hits and a series of comedy sketches with celebrity guest stars
Justin Bieber will feature in his own music special on ITV1.
The 'Baby' singer will perform some of his biggest hits on the programme - set to be aired before one of the 'X Factor' live shows in November - which bosses are hoping will help them to dominate the Saturday night ratings.
Justin, 17, who has appeared in TV show 'C.S.I.' will also get the chance to show off his acting skills, with a host of famous faces being lined up to take part in a series of comedy sketches with him for the show.
The teen singing sensation is not the only popstar to get his own one-off ITV1 special, as plans have recently been announced for One Direction to star in a TV show, which will document their rise to fame since they finished third on 'The X Factor' last year.
The five-piece boyband - made up of Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and Harry Styles - are to appear in the show after music mogul Simon Cowell persuaded television chiefs it would be a fantastic idea to see the teenage hearthrobs on the small screen again.
He said: "Wait until you see what happens to One Direction in the next couple of weeks. There's going to be an explosion happen here, the likes of which we haven't seen since Take That."
