Eminem_101What’s happened to X Factor recently? It seems to have been blown out of the water by Jordan and her publicity roadshow.

Call us cynical, but we think there could be a bit of controversy in the pipeline this weekend. Simon Cowell does not relinquish his precious ratings easily.

One thing that would definitely bring Ant & Dec’s power-grab to an abrupt end is the arrival of Eminem on the judges table.

This week the rapper even offered his services, revealing that he is actually a massive fan of the show. True-to-form he then immediately started cussing the show’s current judges – and with good reason.

“No disrespect to the current judges but you need people who are global, platinum-selling stars. You need to prepare contestants for what it’s really like out there, and what sort of pressure you are going to be under,” explained Shady.

He went on to say that he’d “guarantee” a platinum-selling star if he and his producer pal Dr Dre each had a guest slot as judges: “So much average talent comes out of these reality shows, it’s time to give people a chance who deserve it.

“A hip-hop star will never win a show like The X Factor without somebody like me on the panel. There are a lot of very talented hip-hop stars who would kill for a for a break in Britain but the judges aren’t qualified in hip-hop.?

“I keep my eye on the urban scene in Britain and there is a lot of talent out there. It needs somebody in power to open a door for them.”
