Rapper Snoop Dogg has confirmed reports he was in the running to judge Simon Cowell's new The X Factor talent show in America.
The hip-hop star was approached to join the judging panel of the new series, alongside music mogul Antonio 'L.A.' Reid, but reveals he didn't want to make such a big commitment to the series.
He tells Digital Spy, "They asked me to do that, but I don't think that's for me. I wouldn't mind going on the show as a mentor, but not as far as a judge."
