Los Angeles: Britney Spears mentors the youngest singers on reality show 'The X Factor' and looks for their best interests in the competition.

Finalist Beatrice Miller, 13, told Bang Showbiz: "Britney is the best; I had all her music growing up. So to be able to ask her advice is amazing."

"She's so nurturing. I was having a lot of trouble with my voice and she totally understood. She totally respected the fact that I was unwell and said 'Just do whatever you feel is necessary'," said Miller.

Carly Rose Sonenclar, another 13-year-old, also was having voice issues and agreed that Spears made sure each of her contestants were looked after.

"She's very personable, fun and hands-on. She's very open to questions and suggestions. I've been worried about my voice this week and I feel like I can go to Britney with any issues I have," said Sonenclar.

Arin Ray, 17, is thrilled to have Britney as his mentor.

"To have Britney as my mentor is just amazing. The way we bonded was incredible, I hope to someday be as successful as her. She shows you how to still be relevant in the industry from a young age."
