David Walliams wants to "duet with Wagner" on "The X Factor".
The 47-year-old comedian - who acts as a judge on Simon Cowell's rival show "Britain's Got Talent" - has joked that he would make an appearance on the new and revamped series of the singing show if it meant he could "kill it off" and there would be less competition for "Britain's Got Talent" at awards shows.
Speaking at the Bafta TV Awards, he quipped: "If I can kill that format forever by appearing on it, I'd very much like to. I've mentioned it to him [Simon]. I cannot sing a note so I'd fit in very well. It would be fun. I don't know if it's going to happen but I'd love to. I've always loved it. I would love to be on that stage doing a duet with Wagner."
"The X Factor" has undergone a huge revamp and Simon decided to make the change because he felt they had "lost sight of the contestants".
Speaking about the judging panel costs, he said: "It was no secret it was millions and millions of pounds. I am going to be really honest with you - and this is no disrespect to Robbie or anyone else who has been on the panel - my focus this year is mainly about the people who are coming on the show to compete. I'm probably talking myself out of a job here, but I think there has been so much emphasis on the judges.
"We've lost sight of the contestants. It got crazy, I never thought this would happen 20 years ago, when I started this show, that we would be talking more about the judges than the contestants, it's complete nonsense. Somehow that's the way it's gone. So that's why me and Rob were talking, and he could see where I was coming from. It's about getting the right people to come on the show, that was it."
