"X Factor"

Three Finalists for

TWO Hosting Spots

9/19/2012 5:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details


There are 3 candidates still standing for the coveted "X Factor" hosting gig -- Khloe Kardashian, Mario Lopez, and Corbin Bleu -- but only 2 of them will be chosen.

Sources connected to the production tell us the show has decided to go with co-hosts, and Khloe remains Simon Cowell's top pick.

Earlier today, we were told there would only be one host, but it turns out there will be TWO ... and Mario Lopez is indeed the likely choice to share the stage with Khloe. Our bad.

We're told "High School Musical" grad Corbin is waiting in the wings if negotiations fall thru with Mario or Khloe.

As we reported ... E! is worried "X Factor" might take away from Khloe's time on its reality shows.

Stay tuned ...

Please no Kardashian on x factor. This no talent family is gravy training and living on Kim's sex tape.

If Kartrashian hosts, I'm definitely never watching. Hopefully sane minds will pick Mario Lopez, and Corbin Bleu.

Also, why would Simon even consider Kardashian? She has no experience in hosting like Mario Lopez. You mean x factor cannot find someone in the media who has this type of experience? What a joke. Oh Khloe, you still do not know who your real daddy is and never will know because momma slept with and guy who had money in La.

They all have a similarity to them. How can they think that khloe will be better than Mario. Everyone likes Mario, even the people who don't like him like him. Where did Corbin come from? I don't know but he ain't going to work either.
Team Mario

They need to hire folks who play to stick around longer than 15 minutes. Take a lesson from the American Idol revolving door thing. That really annoyed the viewership.

We have the amazon carASSian freak. We have Mario, one of the world's biggest closet homo's along with Ryan Seacreast and Leo Di'Crapio. And then you have some guy no one knows about.

I've never seen the show and never will. But can't this show find someone with talent. Hell, even Eddie Money is back making commercials, bring him and you might be able to get Phil Specter out of jail to do a work release. It's still better than your current choices.

Amazon woman and a flaming homo, what a great choice.

if any Kartrashian is on that show I will never tune in at all. I am sick to death of that vile family being everywhere and in everything. What experience does she have as a host????? Yes I know you have to start from somewhere BUT the difference between her and the other two is that they work in the business and have done for a long time to know what to do. Also they have worked hard to get where they are not living of the the back of a disgusting sex-tape starring their slutty sister. She and all her nasty family would never be in the spotlight without that tape. Am so glad their stupid 'reality' show have got poor ratings and nobodies buying their cheap products. Seems like the 15 mins are well and truely over dolls loooooool

There should be no question - Mario. Definitely the non-talented Kardashian, She would ruin the show because the only thing she has going for her is her big nasty mouth.

Would they really put talented Mario Lopez with former sales clerk,Khloe Notalent ?? How bizarre
What an embarrassment for the network. Somebody has gone daft.

Shouldn't a talent judge have some kind of talent themselve?
