Rihanna Joins L.A Reid At XF USA Judges' Houses
RiRi is the first celebrity guest mentor confirmed for the show...
Finally, Paula Abdulwill be taking care of The Groups, with The Stereo Hoggz, 2Square, 4Shore, The Brewer Boys, Illusion Confusion and The Anser all hoping to advance to the finals.
Rihanna is the first guest mentor to be announced, with SiCo, Nicole and Paula's celebrity guests to be revealed on next Tuesday's show.
RiRi has also confessed that if she hadn't already hit the big time, she would have joined the hoards of hopefuls at The X Factor auditions.
The We Found Love star revealed: "Six years ago, before I was signed, if it was The X Factor that had come first, I would have entered to have a chance at fulfilling my dream. This show is all so exciting – it’s like a party."
Speaking of the US XF judges, RiRi said: "Simon is very raw – let’s put it that way – with the way that he approaches critique. But it’s very honest. You have to listen to everything he says, no matter how nasty it might sound."
As for Reid, Rihanna claimed: "I know what it’s like to audition for LA. He can definitely be a pain in the ass as well. I have to say, he will find a way to make you feel you might have a second chance on a nice day but he rarely gives second chances. You have to really impress him in a short time."
