Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez made the cut and are the next new hosts on The X Factor!

You will see them do their thing during the live competitions that start in November.

Simon Cowell explained why he choose Khloe,

“We have screen tested a load of people. . .It could be a Kardashian,”Cowell said. “I think that would work. I’m quite a fan of not putting [experienced] hosts on this show. Because I think it’s going to give it a different dynamic. So we have to find people who have a great chemistry, but Khloe is definitely up there in running.”

This should be interesting..

Khloe Kardashian is now a front-runner to become the new host of “X Factor.”

Sources everyone including Simon Cowell, believe Khloe makes the most sense in terms of audience draw, since they’ve already invested heavily in Britney Spears and Demi Lovato to attract young viewers.

The decision will be made soon and will appear when the live shows airs next month.

“There’s at least an 85% chance she’ll get the job.”

Mariah Carey just broke the bank with her new one-year deal with “American Idol” …reportedly making close to $18 MILLION says TMZ.

Britney Spears  who just signed on with ‘X-Factor’ is ONLY getting $15 million.

Mariah  took to twitter saying,

“It’s gonna be so much fun working on American Idol. As a singer-songwriter, I’m excited to help find and nurture new talent. LYM! – MC”

Simon Cowell announced the line up for “X Factor” and like we reported earlier Britney Spears is joining the cast.
