Rapper Eminem has said that he would love to act as a judge on 'The X Factor'.

According to The Sun, he 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.

"So much average talent comes out of these reality shows, it's time to give people a chance who deserve it."

"A hip-hop star will never win a show like 'The X Factor' without somebody like me on the panel."

"There are a lot of very talented hip-hop stars who would kill for a break in Britain but the judges aren't qualified in hip-hop."

"I keep my eye on the urban scene in Britain and there is a lot of talent out there. It needs somebody in power to open a door for them."

"I am not sure I would have the time to do it full-time, but I would come and be a guest judge. Simon tells it like it is and I am down with that. If somebody ain't good enough they ain't good enough."
