Khloe Kardashian

FRONT-RUNNER

To Host 'X Factor'

EXCLUSIVE

Khloe Kardashian may be doing her part to jump start the economy ... because TMZ has learned she's the front-runner to become the "X Factor" host and we're told the suits want it to happen.

Sources intimately connected to the show tell TMZ ... Khloe is definitely #1 among the women who tried out and is generally considered the best in the entire pack of host wannabes.

Khloe did a screen test that went over well. The suits -- including Simon Cowell (who has probably never worn a suit) -- 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.

Producers will make a decision soon. The host won't appear until the live shows air, and that begins next month. 

As for the odds ... as one well-connected source tells us, "There's at least an 85% chance she'll get the job."

I won't be watching!! She's not even a music artist, expert, etc. This is all because of how popular their show is, society's need for amusement is going downhill. No great talent out here anymore. Why not bring an old school music legend to the platform? This is ridiculous.

KARDASHIAN KARAOKE!
These low-brow karaoke demonstrations cater to the dumb and talentless to begin with, and they really cut to the chase here! Seriously, who the hell can watch this sh*t?

Simon! Are you reading the comments? No one likes Khloe!! He's the worst of the Kardashians. I was all set to watch until now. Maybe I'll check out The Voice after all.

JUST THIS MORNING, I was at one of my favorite grocery chains and , on the cover of a mag, states O.J. Simpson has Khloe in his will. If true, perhaps he will have elaborated the details to be made public after his death.

Horrible, Horrible choice!!! I -was- a big fan of the X-factor. Funny how Kloe can trump any a-list celebrity into a deal breaker. If Kloe is the final decision....THE VOICE will be my choice!
