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.

Reid. Even with new table mates, Cowell is still the same old Simon. "Arguably one of the worst things I've ever heard," he tells a group of dejected boys after their performance. "Shambles. It was a joke."
