VIDEO: Olly Murs Visiting '90210,' Trying To Break Into U.S. Market
Former UK X-Factor contestant and British pop star Olly Murs, will be performing on an upcoming episode of 90210.
The episode Murs, 28, is slated to appear in is set to air in April. He'll be showing up to help the characters Liam (Matt Lanter) and Navid (Michael Steger) get the attention of a pro-surfer. Murs will perform "Right Place and Time" and his song with Flo Rida, "Troublemaker," to help them get the girl.
Murs has had incredible success in the UK with "Troublemaker" and his other hit single "Dance With Me Tonight," both of which have done well in the charts. Yet, the recording artist is still waiting to be a household name in America. "I mean, when you come to the States, you’ve gotta start from scratch,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “It’s a new start for everyone. We’ve got to showcase my talent and try to win new fans.”
The British performer is following in the footsteps of the U.K. teen sensation One Direction, who also got their big break from UK X-Factor. He'll be making tour stops in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles in January before heading back across the pond.
