It's official ... Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez will be the new co-hosts of "X Factor" ... TMZ has confirmed with sources connected to the show.

We broke the story ... Khloe and Mario had been thiiiiiiis close to a deal for months ... but now we've confirmed they've both signed on the dotted line ... it's a done deal.

We're told the duo's salaries will add millions to the budget -- on top of an already enormous talent budget ... with Britney Spears in the lead at $15 mil.

K&M are expected to debut on the show in November.

Simon is not staying on that show. It'll be too much work. Let Slater handle the table. Simon'll have to cover the books.

This train stopped before it even started when the "brilliant" notion of hiring Kloe K as host was an actual good idea. People are screaming to Hollywood...stop with the Kardashian madness overload....it's so nauseating at this point. The public has to send a clear message. STOP watching and supporting. Like Seacrest wasn't behind the whole gunning for Kloe with his good time buddy. Hey Simon, sad to see you've been strong armed by your apprentice. Mario would have been a great independent choice.

One's from Afghanistan, the other Mexico. Their countries look exactly the same. Say, how much for that cow over there?

X-FACTOR IS OVER-i'LL NEVER LOOK AT IT-KHLOE IS A NO TALENT SLUT. She wanted a black Lakers basketball player but not Lamar Odom. She threw a party for Ron Artest aka World Piece who dumped her and the only horney fool was Lamar who gave up his kids and his live in girlfriend from over 12 years. They had 3 children, one died, and she deserted her. Great mom, she is prettier and smater and talented. Good luck to her and bad choice for X Factor. Britney we love but not Khloe. X-FACTOR JUST LOST LOTS OF FANS. Well look at the first show and then never again. Khloe is like the circus clown. She only got Lamar cause he was greedy and turned his back on his beautiful lady for a FAT SLUT. X FACTOR WON'T LAST .. BAD CALL TO SIGN KHLOE

I have no problem with them, Im sure they are nice people , and Khloe is cute in an "Amazon women" sort of way. But utterly devoid of any measurable talent, or worthy of an opinion. Mario is a strong enough "TV gost guy" But neither is really intriguing to me on any level. I could care less that they would have any involvement, and Im actually a fan of the show. KIm, might make sense, on some level, as is super hot, and seeing her her big ass but, would "sell it" but would still not really care, So, this is a major "money toilet flush" for sure, can't imagine what they were possibly thinking, and they will see no benefit
