Britpop star and former UK X-Factor contestant Olly Murs is heading to 90210.

In the episode, slated to air in April, Murs pops up to help Liam and Navid woo a pro-surfer. The singer will perform two songs — “Troublemaker,” his song featuring Flo Rida and “Right Place Right Time.”

While Americans may not know Murs yet, the 28-year-old has topped the charts across the pond with his singles “Dance with Me Tonight” and the aforementioned “Troublemaker.” When he spoke to EW in December, Murs acknowledge the divide between his UK success and impending introduction to crowds in the U.S. “I mean, when you come to the States, you’ve gotta start from scratch,” he said. “It’s a new start for everyone. We’ve got to showcase my talent and try to win new fans.”

90210 returns with new episodes Monday (Jan. 21) at 9 p.m. ET on the CW.

Put it in a topic already but no matter, if only every topic in this forum could be about him <3

Olly deserves success there. He's one of the only pop artists to retain originality in his catchy music, much of it is lost to the horrible club music that tops the chart now. And his music transcends gender like Ed Sheeran, Coldplay and Adele.

Americans will like him especially if he's doing a collab with Flo Rida. AND girls will love our Essex boy if he's on an American teen series. That accent will blow their minds away like it did me <3

A toast to Olly and his future success. Can't wait till Army of Two comes out!

So glad I don't watch 90210! So I won't have to endure the "cheeky chappie"!

Anyone interested - he is now an ambassador for the FA 150th anniversary celebrations! Glad I don't like football either!

You know 90210 has gone downhill when they have Olly Murs performing he's not really someone that fits the show...

And he's arrogant to boot.I beg to disagree with him -he has no discernible talent imo -he's just got a very good PR team and appeals to the chavs who like his 'accent'.'.

I like Olly but weird show for him to be on. I would have thought his looks would have been a bit overshadowed by the likes of Matt Lanter and Trevor Donovan if they are having him on it to appeal to women in that way. But still, sounds like a pretty good opportunity for him.

His looks are overshadowed by almost everyone on the planet! You probably gather I cannot stand him. I was prepared to give him a chance when he was on XF but that "dance" he did on the final was the last straw. So tacky and unnecessary.

The only discernible talent he has is for self promotion and his "catchy" pop music is just reggae cast offs.

And he was vile to my step son's girlfriend and her friend in a restaurant in Camden a few weeks back - surrounded by yes girls and boys he was rude and arrogant to her.

What a cock

I am not surprised to hear your story about your stepson's girlfriend. Won't be long before he says "Don't you know who I am?" - if he hasn't said it already.

That's strange, he was lovely when I met him. Very charming and had time for everyone.

You seem to have some weird thing against him. If you hate him so much why bother commenting on every thread about him multiple times? It's not going to change the fact that he's successful and enjoying a good career.

Part of that success is due to his constant promotion on xtra factor. I'd like to see how he would do with little to no promo.

Yes I want to see how well he does by starting from the bottom kind off thing.

I think heart Skips a Beat would sound so much better in a show like 90210 cause that the type of music they play. But I'm looking forward seeing his cheesy acting - there loads of that in this show

This is ridiculous to say. Obviously he would not do well! No one does well without PR/marketing! Talk about stating the obvious. If Britney Spears released a single tomorrow, where do you think it would chart? NOWHERE. Because we wouldn't have known about it for months!

It's Cowell's show anyway, don't you think he gets the say in who hosts the Xtra Factor anyway? If its one of his own artists, even better! This is just common business sense.

I don't mind negative comments but when they're just senseless it's quite annoying.

I think the poster was just stating how they want to see if he can do it without being on our TVs in the weekend for months. Olly has this luxury here in the UK but does not in America. Will people buy into the cheeky chappy? I don't know but lets hope he does well.

David Bowie and Justin Timberlake have both released singles out of the blue with no promo and both have topped itunes.

How rude. So I am a chav because I like his accent? Ridiculous...

And to both Chem and LED, I understand fully well what you're saying but artists need PR. It doesn't matter if Olly's on our screens (tbh compared to X Factor not many watch the Xtra Factor) or whether he's generating a news story every week. Artists need to make sure people don't forget about them, otherwise forget about people not buying records, they won't even give it a listen. Do you think Emeli Sande or 1D would be as successful as they were this year without all that marketing/advertising? Obviously not.

David Bowie had promo! He had some newspapers talking about it earlier. If people hear you're going to release a single after 10 years especially if it's a well established artist, everyone who grew up with him would pass the word around like crazy. The word does catch on incredibly quickly but nevertheless promo was there, the news stories were there to get people going. And cmon all Justin's fans know he was returning to music! His vevo had even launched the trailer beforehand. Of course they both had promo. It wasn't out of the blue.

But the thing is 1D, I don't know about Emilie don't need it. They would still have been successful. So yes I still think that as an artist you don't need PR. Didn't like Jake Bugg have number 1 album with not that much promo? So yes artists can do with out the PR thing.

Word of Mouth.

1D is only successful because they are 5 "cute" boys and thats it. Solo artists: Girls or Boys really need PR Team, Heart Skips A Bit flopped because of that.

I agree, why Simon is STILL so occupied with his boy band is unbelievable. Little Mix and Olly will have no chance of cracking America on their own. And then he blames his own artists (as though it's their fault, the record just wasn't good enough!). But nooooo Simon if anyone is to be blamed at all for your artists lack of success it's yourself. Pumping PR into 1 or 2 acts is not helpful. Hasn't he heard of multi-tasking?

I don't watch this show anymore and this isn't really convincing me to start again.

Nobody knew Bowie was releasing any new material. It seemed as though he had retired. It was only after he released it, that everyone started talking about it.
