He’s used to getting what he wants, but Simon Cowell admits Madonna rejected his invitation to perform on this year’s X Factor final.
The music mogul is desperate to get the 56-year-old queen of pop to sing on stage with a finalist.
‘Is there any artist I want on the show I haven’t had before? Madonna,’ he told Metro from his X Factor dressing room on Sunday night.
‘Will she be on the final? I don’t think so. But always next year. We always send an invite out.’ Cowell said he aimed to get a guest performer that ‘you don’t normally see on many other shows’ – such as Prince.
