Simon Cowell has invited Sinead O'Connor to be a guest judge on The X Factor.

The 54-year-old music mogul took to Twitter to appeal to the star to appear as a panellist on the talent show, just days after she declared Simon and fellow judge from the UK version of the show, Louis Walsh, have "murdered music" through The X Factor. He tweeted, "I think sinead o'connor would be a real fun guest judge on X factor. She loves the show and everything I do. Let me know sinead. [sic]"

Earlier this week Sinead appeared on Irish chat show The Late Late Show to address her ongoing feud with Miley Cyrus, and hit out at Simon, Louis and The X Factor.

She said, "I don't feel sorry for me or for anybody else in the matter; that's not what it's about. The broader issue, I feel sorry for the murder of music. I feel sorry for the murder of rock 'n roll which has happened because of the industry. Because of Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and the lot of them [talent show judges who] have murdered music.

"They're murderers of music! I stand and say it on behalf of every musician in the world and they will all agree with it. I don't give a s**t if I hurt them . . . All the sexualisation of young people, all the worship of bling and money and diamonds and Pop Idol stuff, Simon Cowell ? it all amounts to the murder of music."

However, in 2009 Sinead said she’d compete on The X Factor if she were trying to break into the music industry.
