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.

Put Honey Boo Boo on as a Judge and dump the hair twirler - at least Boo Boo has real talent.

I haven't read a single comment yet, so my unbiased opinion is: Mario, OK! But Khloe? I do like her personality, but I still can't picture her as a host. She was shockingly shy on the Apprentice. Good luck to both.

Another Tard-ashian. I am so sick of that disgusting family. I will make a point to tape it so I can see who the advertisers are so I can boycott their products, FOREVER!

I thought putting Brittany on the panel was brilliant. Everyone loves a great comeback story. I have watched every show since she has been added. Putting Khloe and Mario as hosts is a real head scratcher. Why would you pick two completely unlikeable people to add to the mix? Even though I have been a faithful viewer, I will be not be watching anymore. Whoever made this decision is losing it. What a guarenteed show killer. Yuck.

Everyone here is disgusting. All the name calling is simple bullying, no need for any of that. How would you feel if you were called a "Whore" a "Fat Pig". You people need to realize that what you are saying does not make you cool, you look like idiots.
