Recent Hollywood celebrity gossip tells us that MARC ANTHONY and JUSTIN BIEBER are slated to become the next celebrity mentors on “The X Factor.”

BBC 020436

Among four of the next celebrity mentors for “The X Factor” will reportedly be Jennifer Lopez’s Puerto Rican ex, Marc Anthony, and the young teen heartthrob, Justin Bieber.

We know. Odd picks, wouldn’t you say?

Nonetheless, sources close to TMZ report:

“[Marc Anthony] recently inked a deal with the FOX talent show to join the cast as a mentor for Simon Cowell‘s group of music hopefuls…”

The site also recalled:

Bieber also signed on to be a celeb mentor — there will be 4 in total, one for each judge — lending his (ahem) years of knowledge to L.A. Reid‘s squad.”

On the other hand, Justin does beat Marc‘s album sales with a 3 million difference and Marc has his two Grammys (plus three Latin Grammys) to swamp Justin‘s zero.

Oh, and they both like hot Latin chicks.

So, if the two were to battle against each other as the show’s newest mentors, who do you think will win…

Marc or Justin?
