Marc Anthony - Marc Anthony Signs On As X Factor Mentor

Marc Anthony has put pen to pen to paper for the X Factor, and is set to become the show's latest mentor, reports Times Live.
The Grammy award winning singer-songwriter, and ex-husband to Jennifer Lopez will work on the hugely popular talent competition, The X Factor, alongside Simon Cowell to decide which prospective talents make it through, and which don't. Anthony will act as a mentor for the show, guiding those lucky enough to make it through with every aspect of their performance. The show, set to hit screens on September 12th will also enlist the help of teenage superstar Justin Bieber, and his droves of 'Beliebers' will enhance the show's appeal no end, and is set to fill a similar role to Anthony. He was spotted at Cowell's rival judge L.A. Reid's house, going through the acts and helping with decisions. Bieber - who was signed to Island Def Jam by L.A. - wrote on Twitter: "Long day but great day. LA_Reid ScooterBraun just like old times! thanks (sic)"
In other X Factor news, this time UK, One Direction have won their legal battle to keep their name. They had been facing action from a Californian rock band who had already been using the name. The intrepid U.S rockers were hoping to achieve damages of more than 600k but reports suggest that the situation has been resolved, and the U.S band are changing their name to Uncharted Shores, the title of one of their albums.
