Teenage pop superstar Justin Bieber will pay a visit to a familiar TV show in an upcoming episode, appearing as himself — in animated form — on Fox’s Sunday staple "The Simpsons," reports EW.com’s Inside TV.
"The Simpsons" executive producer Al Jean said Bieber “tries to get into a talent show that Bart is playing piano in and they won’t admit him. Draw your own conclusions.”
The episode, "The Fabulous Faker Boy," will air in 2013 as part of the show’s 24th season. Other guests during the season will include Steve Carell, Natalie Portman and Zooey Deschanel.
Bieber, 18, wasn’t born yet when "The Simpsons" launched in 1989, the report notes.
