Nashville star Hayden Panettiere wants P. Diddy to star on the show and do a duet with her.

The 23-year-old star, who plays driven country singer Juliette Barnes on the popular TV show, revealed that she would love the rapper to make a cameo in the second series.

Contact Music quotes the star as saying: ''I want P. Diddy to be on the show. I was like, 'Let's mix it up a bit, we could do a duet! That would be pressure.''

Panettiere previously stated that she wouldn't rule out having a music career, but insisted that she would have to try and separate herself from her Nashville character, saying: ''I would need to separate myself from Juliette Barnes and be seen as Hayden. And that's a very difficult thing to do sometimes.''
