Hayden Panettiere wants P. Diddy to appear on 'Nashville'.

The 23-year-old actress - who plays damaged but driven country singer Juliette Barnes on the TV show - has already been confirmed for the second series, and she wants the 'Hello Good Morning' rapper to guest star and do a duet with her.

She said: ''I want P. Diddy to be on the show. I was like, 'Let's mix it up a bit, we could do a duet! That would be pressure.''

Hayden - who has rubbished suggestions her character resembles Taylor Swift - claims she attempted a recording career when she was a youngster but admits she finds performing on stage terrifying because of the negativity she's received growing up in the limelight.

She said previously: ''Performing live has always terrified me. Stages have always terrified me. They never used to when I was little. But when you grow up in the spotlight, and you're constantly reading things that are awful about you, it sticks with you.''

The blonde beauty hasn't dismissed the idea of pursuing a career in the music industry in the future, but believes it would be hard to shake off her Nashville role.

She explained: ''I would need to separate myself from Juliette Barnes and be seen as Hayden. And that's a very difficult thing to do sometimes.''
