Is David Bowie The Next ‘X Factor’ Judge?

Forget Bieber-mania. It’s time for David Bowie mania. With the release of his new album ‘The Next Day‘ due next month, it seems as though everybody — including ‘X Factor‘ boss Simon Cowell — wants a piece of rock’s legendary chameleon.

Cowell recently told the U.K.’s Daily Mail that he has extended an invite to Bowie to become an ‘X Factor’ judge but has yet to hear a response back. Asked why he would like Bowie to be a part of the program, Cowell sums up his thoughts rather succinctly:

“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.” (For the record we’re against this, we’re very happy to have two of our nights every week free now that Steven Tyler is off ‘American Idol.’)

As reported by Ultimate Classic Rock earlier this week,  all signs look to David Bowie releasing the second single from his forthcoming record ‘The Next Day’ on February 26.
