Popstar Justin Bieber is lending his crooning vocal chords to FOUR's hit show The Simpsons.
The 18-year-old tweeted today "just did a voice over for the SIMPSONS!!! #swaggy."
The tweet was later deleted, however Simpsons executive producer Al Jean confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that Bieber will play himself on the show.
"He tries to get into a talent show that Bart is playing in and they won't admit him. Draw your own conclusions."
Jean is excited that Bieber's fanbase of Beliebers will tune in to this episode.
"It's a cameo, but all of his fans should watch every minute of the show, before and after he's on."
The show will air as part of the 24th season and the episode is titled 'The Fabulous Faker Boy'.
The Simpsons airs Sundays at 7:30pm and weekdays at 7pm on FOUR.
Justin Bieber was in Auckland recently to promote his new album 'Believe'. Watch his interview with Shannon Ryan here.
