Khloe Kardashian

Simon's Pick

For 'X Factor'

EXCLUSIVE

0911_khloe_kardashian_x_factor_articleSimon Cowell has made his decision ... he wants Khloe Kardashian to host "X Factor" and it's now in the hands of FOX -- network sources tell TMZ.

Our sources say Simon made the case that Khloe is a big draw who will complete the circle of making the show decidedly younger than last season. Khloe has a connection to Britney Spears and Demi Lovato and Simon believes the three of them create an authentic vibe that none of the other potential hosts bring to the table.

We're told FOX must now sign off on Simon's choice and that decision is expected within a week.

One source said it's "highly likely" the network will give Khloe its stamp of approval.

Bad choice. What would this family know about musical talent when they have no talent whatsoever?

a smart man would not exchange one viewership for another but rather would find someone like Seacrest who everyone will love. These people are fools and I hope the ship sinks

What exactly qualifies this whale as a judge of anything? Because her sister has a sex tape and her father got a murderer off? This means she can spot talent??? WTF

What has this woman done to deserve being paid millions for sitting on her ass judging real talent? Just another reason not to watch the X Factor.

Great! One clinically insane judge and another judge that looks like a center for Chicago Bears.

The good news about the choices these shows are all making---they should all be off the air before long. So--thanks, Simon.
