Shut up! For a while there, we were worried that Britney Spears was flying solo while mentoring her contestants on The X Factor!

We know that L.A. Reid has Biebs in the house (literally) to work with his group, Simon is engaging in a battle of charm and accents with co-mentor Marc Anthony, and Demi Lovato is having a little family reunion with Nick Jonas.

Not to be outdone by her fellow judges, TV Guide is reporting that Britney Spears knew Black Eyed Pea will.i.am would give her some extra boom boom pow-er — and has asked him to co-mentor her age group. Britney and will.i.am are old pals, having worked together on her album Femme Fatale and then collaborating recently on a track for his soon-to-be released album #willpower on the track “Sexy Sexy.”

will.i.am previously Elephunked up Britain as a coach on the U.K. version of The Voice, and he manages former X Factor judge Cheryl Cole, so we have no doubt that this is one more chance he’s going to use to help his peeps win (especially with songs about girls).
