Eminem is believed to have approached Simon Cowell to ask if he can replace one of The X Factor judges on the panel, because they aren’t “global” like he is.
The famous rapper apparently thinks the show needs “platinum-selling stars” rather than mentors Dannii Minogue, Cheryl Cole and Louis Walsh.
Eminem reportedly said: “No disrespect to the current judges but you need people who are global platinum-selling stars. You need to prepare contestants for what it is really like out there, and what sort of pressure you are going to be under.”
The 37-year-old apparently added that “average” singers come out of shows like The X Factor, but if he and Dr Dre sat on the panel, a hip-hop superstar would be born.
However, Eminem supposedly doesn’t have the time to commit to a whole series of The X Factor, but he fancies appearing in an episode or two.
He reportedly said: “I am not sure I would have the time to do it full time, but I would come on and be a guest judge.”
