Simon Cowell says he would love to have David Bowie as a judge on The X Factor.
Cowell says, "It’s no secret I’ve asked him, and he hasn’t said yes yet, but I’ll keep extending the invitation... He’s a legend. He’s a great songwriter, he has massive influence on music today, and he’s 100 percent credible. I’m a fan. Not just of his music but of him, the man. He’s cool. Most of us aren’t. Bowie is."
And why shouldn't Cowell ask him? After all, Bowie says he has no plans to tour behind his new album, The Next Day, which will be out in March.
