Report: Marc Anthony Joining The X Factor as Mentor
Marc Anthony's ex-wife Jennifer Lopez recently stepped down from her post as a judge on American Idol — but now he's reportedly entered the reality singing competition arena.
Anthony has signed a deal to join Season 2 of The X Factor as a celebrity mentor for Simon Cowell's team, TMZ reports.
It won't be the first time Anthony has judged performers. He and Lopez teamed up earlier this year for Q'Viva!: The Chosen, a reality series that featured the former couple traveling throughout Latin America looking to recruit talent for an all-Latin performance group in Las Vegas.
