Justin Bieber has claimed that he was "used" for ratings by The X Factor USA.
Bieber signed up to help LA Reid choose his favourite contestants in the Over 25s category at the Judges' Houses stage of the competition.
However, last night's episode focused only on Demi Lovato's Young Adults and Simon Cowell's Groups, meaning that Bieber's time with Reid did not feature heavily.
On hearing the news, Bieber complained about the decision on his Twitter page.
"heard we got used for ratings according to Twitter and we arent even on until tomorrow?" he wrote. "@xfactorusa could of just told us."
However, Bieber seemed to move on quickly from the disappointment as he prepared for a concert, writing: "about to see my fans...my beliebers...and it's gonna BE ALRIGHT. #showtime #CANADA."
