David Bowie To Judge X Factor?
As David Bowie's new a bum release draws nearer, you can bet Bowie-mania is waiting to pour through the music world. And in some quarters, it already is. The Daily Mail spoke to to more than a dozen music and art professionals about Bowie, one of the most elusive art icons in history - where Simon Cowell revealed he wants him as a judge on X Factor. "I think if I could have anyone on The X Factor it would be David Bowie," said Cowell. "It's no secret I've asked him, and he hasn't said yes yet, but I'll keep extending the invitation. "Why Bowie? He's a legend. He's a great songwriter, he has massive influence on music today and he's 100 per cent 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." Others to praise Bowie include film director Danny Boyle, who directed the London 2012 Olympic opening ceremony: "When I started work on the opening ceremony, I wrote to Bowie to ask if he might consider performing live. He agreed to meet, so I flew to New York and gave a presentation. In the end, he didnt want to make any kind of live appearance. At the same time, he wanted to support us and was more than happy to help us with video footage and the rights to songs. I loved it when Heroes played as Team GB entered the stadium." David Bowie will release his new album "The Next Day" on February 26. Are you interested in seeing Bowie's musical comeback, or is he just an alien from another generation to you? Does Bowie have a modern equivalent? Let us know what you think in the comments.
