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.

OH LORD! WHY WHY do we still have to have the Kraptrashians shoved down our throats??? Now Bigfoot gets herself a hosting gig, but I guess since her loser dried up B-Ball hubby aint raking in the big bucks, someone has to pay the food bill for the Wookie...

After reading all your comments, it's obvious that most of you can't read. She ISN'T going to be a JUDGE. She'll be HOSTING the show. As a host you don't need talent. As much as I despise this family, I actually think this is a great idea for The X Factor. She's the least annoying & and more genuine than the rest. Can't wait for tomorrow night. Good job Simon.

My god that's such a slap in the face to people who have acutal talent and to be judged by a Kardashian who has no talent whatsoever like the rest of the family.


What qualifications? What draw? Hope FOX is smart enough not to. If she is going to be such a ratings draw...than Cowell should pay her out of his own pocket. Yeah, like that would ever happen.


Ok, let's see her proove herself as a ratings draw then pay her. Of course not. Typical Kardashians always get the money up front. Then who cares what happenes, they are paid.

Britney and Demi judging and Khloe hosting. If u didn't tell me it's a singing contest I'd have imagined it's a contest to find the biggest whore in town.

It is becoming clear that these shows are making lousy, stupid choices. I enjoyed Idol, X-Factor, and the first season of the Voice. Now it's all fa waste of my time. Bye bye all 3 shows. I will find something else to do and watch.
