The former Spice Girls star recently noted that Cruz is planning on following in her pop star footsteps, revealing he is already learning to play the guitar, and back in April (16), she and husband David both posted videos online featuring their son singing the Pitch Perfect hit When You're Gone and a winning version of Twista and Faith Evans' Hope.

Both videos went viral and attracted the attention of Justin Bieber's manager Scooter Braun, and now Cowell is interested.

He told The Sun he believes Cruz is ready for his own turn in the spotlight following big brother Brooklyn's already successful modelling career.

“I met them when they were younger," the music mogul says, "and I have to say they are really incredible kids. They could have been really spoilt but they weren’t - they were really funny."

Cowell it seems is very serious about getting out his cheque book to make the Beckhams' second-born son an offer he can't refuse, stating, "Get him in and we’ll sign him."
