Simon Cowell invites Sinead O'Connor to be X Factor judge

Los Angeles - 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 Louis Walsh have ''murdered music'' through The X Factor:

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] 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 that she would compete on the X Factor if she was trying to break into the music industry.
