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.

A Kartrashian signed on to X-Factor, X-Factor officially off my watch list. I will not watch any show that has a Kartrashian on it.

Now refresh my memory, what was Khloe Kardashian great claim to fame again? Is she a legendary musician? Is she an award winning actress?

If this show was called The Wookie Factor I would be all for Khloe being the host, and instead of that sneaky Mario Lopez I would rather see Boba Fett be the other host. Khloe would be judging a show about her own species. But it is not a show about Wookies, and the fat, loud, untalented Khloe has no business being on this show. May the force not be with this obese one. I hope the show fails and I wish no good luck to the greedy Kardashians

Shouldn't the focus be on the "talent" instead of all of these overpaid celebrities? How about hiring real judges of talent instead of lip-synching flakes?

Slim pickings... eh? Hollywood must have a lack of available talent.
