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.

Of the 3 Kardashian broads Khloe is the most real but what kind of talent does she have? He might as well have Courtney's baby daddy-Scott Dip****z as a judge.

And with that decision Simon Cowell kill's X-Factor in America. Everyone that dislikes any of the new cast of X-Factor should vote by watching The Voice this season instead of X-Factor.

Out of all the Kardashians, Khloe is the only one I can stomach. She's more real than the rest of the nitwits. I don't like these judging talent shows, so I don't watch them, and don't plan on.

Definitely not watching now.

Khloe - Whiney voice
Britney - Can't make her own decisions
Demi - No one can name just one of her songs

I'm sticking with The Voice! Real Talent, Real Judges. Blake Shelton makes the show.

To a few comments before this, When did you need Musical talent to ' Host' a talent show? Ryan seacrest is one of the highest paid hosts and he does not have a musical talent. Who cares if you do not like the Kardashians, becuase they will always have the other millons of INTERNATIONAL fans
