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.

Yuk, count me out. The Voice is gonna take care of Cowells lame show anyway. They really pulled a fast one on him this week and he didn't see anything coming. Just mentioning a K-whore for a possible host unleashed a torrent of bad Karma bad "Karma" from pimp mama and kimmy pee-on-me k-whore kardashian.

I just cancelled my DVR scheduled records for the X-Factor! You won't count my signal with your ratings. See Ya! The Voice has really become my number one for this season of singing shows. Love you Simon, but can't tolerate that person as a host, bad move.

Well I was going to actually check the show out, but now there is NO WAY IN HELL I would watch it. What the hell has this, or any of the WhoreDashians ever done to be on tv??? What are their qualifications? Kim should be in porn and thats about it.

Everyone is complaining that she has no talent to be judging a talent show. but if you read carefully she;s going to be the HOST. not a judging the competition.

This show is going to kill in ratings. She cannot judge talent but she doesn't really have to have that ability because her last name is Kardashian. That alone will blow The Voice out of the water, which is exactly what Simon was trying to do.
