Courtney Love offers up Kurt Cobain's songs for The X Factor

Courtney Love has stunned Nirvana fans by offering Simon Cowell her late husband Kurt Cobain's songs for use on British talent show The X Factor.

In a tweet to the music mogul, who fronts the hit show, Courtney Love appears to be a fan of contestant Janet Devlin and suggests she should have her pick from Nirvana's back catalog, which she owns, for an upcoming show.

Courtney Love writes, "@SimonCowell you want some Nirvana songs? @JanetJealousy is from same town as Kurt? I have the perfect idea for that, call me babe."

Janet Devlin hails from Gortin in Northern Ireland - the same area as Cobain's ancestors.
