Paloma Faith believes she should be a guest judge on The X Factor so she can liven things up.

The Stone Cold Sober songstress, who is backing the BT Digital Music Awards, said she would speak her mind.

"I've tweeted that I'd like to be a guest judge on The X Factor, which I don't think is likely, but I just think it would be nice for them to have someone who's got something interesting to say on there," she said.

The 25-year-old previously penned on her Twitter page: "I want to guest judge The X Factor!!!! Pleeeeeeeeeease Mr Cowell please!"

Paloma, who began her music career on MySpace, said she was a huge supporter of the digital music revolution.

"I think initially, the record industry struggled a lot with digital media because there a lot of aspects to it that can potentially destroy our industry, for example torrents and illegal downloading. But, in some ways, what's happening now is people are realising that we can use it to our advantage with things like Spotify," she said.

She has one reason to be hesitant about the online explosion though.

"I do think that there is an element of mystery that's being lost from it. Everybody knows every last bit of information about me," she added.
