Eminem wants to be an 'X Factor' judge.

The rapper is reportedly a massive fan of the UK TV talent show, and has told judge and producer Simon Cowell to get him on the panel so he can give the hopefuls advice on what it's like to be a global star.

Eminem doesn't think the current judges - Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole, Australian singer Dannii Minogue, the sister of Kylie Minogue, and music manager Louis Walsh - have been successful enough to help the acts.

The 'We Made You' rapper 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's really like out there, and what sort of pressure you are going to be under."

The 37-year-old hip-hop star guarantees he would find a platinum-selling star if he and his producer friend Dr. Dre had a guest slot as judges.

He added to Britain's The Sun newspaper: "So much average talent comes out of these reality shows. A hip-hop star will never win a show like the 'X Factor' without somebody like me on the panel. It needs somebody in power to open a door for them.

"I'm not sure I would have the time to do it full-time, but I would come out and be a guest judge. Simon tells it like it is and I am down with that."
