Charlotte Church thinks music mogul Simon Cowell was too scared of her outspoken attitude to let her be a guest judge on 'The X Factor'

Charlotte Church thinks Simon Cowell was too scared to let her be a guest judge on 'The X Factor'.

The 'Crazy Chick' singer believes she would have been a better choice than last year's panellists - including Nicole Scherzinger, Katy Perry and Pixie Lott - because she knows more about the technicalities of singing than the 51-year-old music mogul himself.

She said: "I'd make a better judge than the others on that show because I know more about the technical side of singing than even Simon Cowell.

"But he wouldn't be able to control me, so he'd never have me on."

Charlotte - who was a judge on Andrew Lloyd Webber's BBC One talent search show 'Over The Rainbow' last year - also slammed 'The X Factor' as being "dreadful news" for everyone else in the music business.

She added to Esquire magazine: "That show doesn't have an interest in true craftsmanship or skill - it's all about you're a*s, and hopefully you can keep half a tune.

"It's dreadful news for everyone else because there's no room on radio or TV for anything else."

The former childhood 'voice of an angel' turned 'crazy chick' makes another bid for pop rather than tabloid acceptance.
