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.

i knew he would pick her, because he didnt have enough faith in his show. he was affraid of his competion and decided to add someone who would cause controvesy. instead of thinking the show could stand on its own merits and talent .he adds sideshow. the voice has people who are connected with music , they dont have to resort to gimmicks..

The only sticking point right now is the contract language.
She wants to eat all of the contestants who get voted off, while Simon wants to be able to offer a contract to at least one in ten.

I told my husband when he told me who they were considering for hosting...NOOOOOO Way will I watch on of thos bimbo's!! Will NOT watch. There are plenty of other talented people to host and also to judge. Same with American Idol....they can get better people to judge. Not sure how that's going to be this year either.
