Khloe Kardashian

Simon's Pick

For 'X Factor'

9/11/2012 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.

Hosts do not have any judging duties. She will be like Nick Cannon on America's Got Talent. Hosts are usually hired for their personalities not their knowledge of the shows content. I think Khloe is a great choice. She is easy going, funny and smart. Good choice!

Utter Contempt    

I have come to hate the arrogant, ignorant, and totally annoying Kardashians. Simon Cowell has lost any common sense he may have had. His arrogance can only be matched by a whole family of idiots that want you to watch them 24/7. SICK! SICK! SICK!! Simon turned me off last year with the MC and LA Reid, all competing for some type of Narcisistic illness. This year I'll turn them all off. God how I hate the KARDASHIANS. No, I mean really get physically ill when one of their strange family members is on the screen. Utter Contempt

I had my wife remove the show from our recorder. I'm not wasting my time watching a Kardashion. When I told her why she agreed.

Why is everyone hating!!!! She is gonna have nothing to do with the music and picking talent... She probably gonna be the host like Ryan Seacrest. So whats the big deal she will be hardly in the picture throughout the show :L

She was awful as a host, tongue tied, awkward, trouble reading her lines with timing. She could not adlib with the contetants, it was painful to watch.

I vote for Ru Paul

I can not take another season of her voice and no talent performance. Surely, there is someone else out there who can do this job better. And, can't she find a stylist that can find outfits in her size, rather then being poured into things 2 sizes too small?
