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.

That's what we need--another show with a Kardashian. Why has this klan (intentional typo) not suffering from over-exposure?

Simon has lost it. What qualifies this NOBODY to 'judge' ANYONE else? Wow. Pathetic. X-Factor is dead.

Obviously, most people didn't read it correctly. She will be a host, not a judge. Huge difference. I liked the show last year w/ boring Steve and will try to watch again this year.

Khole is FANTASTIC she is the best Kardashian ever! I love all of them...the way the sit in chairs and get their makeup done and say they hate being in the spotlight but have a realty show to put them in the ummmm spotlight. I also like how their shoulder pads are so firm and unnecessary. What part of that makes you unable to smash the dream of soeone woo has honed a skill since child birth? Huh? Answer ME!

Oh, but NO! I cannot stand any of the Kardashians. The ONLY decent one, was the biological father, Robert. He died, so the rest are rich, phony pigs! They are NOT qualified to judge anything.....
