Kanye West will not be storming the stage of The X Factor any time soon after show supremo Simon Cowell suggested the star should not be invited to award shows after his impromptu appearance at the Grammys.

The US rapper approached the podium as Beck accepted an award for his album Morning Phase which he thought should have gone to Beyonce.

In 2009, he took to the stage of the MTV Video Awards and interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech after her track You Belong With Me beat Beyonce's Single Ladies for female video of the year.

Speaking to reporters at the Britain's Got Talent auditions at the Dominion Theatre in London, Simon said: " How many times has he done this now?

"W hy don't you A) not invite him? or B) just tie him down to a chair or something?

"L ook it gets him in the paper, so it works."

Simon, who said he was on the look out for a "dancing dog who is a diva" in this year's show, said the secret of its success was a mixture of comedy and talent.

He said: "It's got funnier over the years and you've always got that opportunity you might find a star."
