The Grammy Award-winning singer and producer told The Mirror that he would love to hear from Simon Cowell about taking up a position on the show.
"Simon should give me a buzz," he said. "I love X Factor and to be a judge would be great."
The 60-year-old added: "Seeking out new talent? I have an ear for it."
A number of names have been linked to roles on both the UK and USA versions of the show. To date, though, only Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid are confirmed to appear on the American edition.
Cowell has reportedly stated that he will not quit the ITV1 show, apparently telling bosses that there "is no show" without him.
Meanwhile, Reid has appeared to confirm that Cheryl Cole will sit on the judging panel with himself and Cowell when the Fox show launches in September.
