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.

Why don't they let the public pick the host like they do the contestant? These shows arent even about the upcomming talent anymore!

What a great Dynamic Duo! Ms. No Talent pairing up with Mr. Washed Up Talent. It's kind of funny - Khloe looks like a man, and Mario grooms himself like a woman.

What is wrong with this country.why are these pigs famous?...I saw a commercial today from visit California and it had the biggest pig porn star Kim as the first supposed celebrity....why is California using her to get people to visit us?...I didn't see any other prorn stars in it..the other stars were Betty White and the Jonah brothers and actual actors....the advertising company that made the spot should be fired!....and Simon has lost his mind with this hire...he is a sinking ship!

Seriously?

No Kardashian should be allowed to judge or speak.

They are an unintelligent species indigenous to cheap canyons, athletes beds, and XXX video stores.

Can they pay her extra, so that this vapid, talentless ogre stop talking through her nose?

Better yet. Can they educate on her on how to speak English? The voice always goes down at the end of a statement and not up.

They are HOSTS they don't need to be in the music industry. Ryan Seacrest isn't, neither is Carson Daley. Yahhh Mario!!! Boooo Khloe!!!

Hosts don't have to have a music industry background.
Ryan Seacrest didn't when he started on American Idol.
Carson Daly didn't when he started on The Voice.
Thumbs Up For Mario

Overpay for two people with zero talent themselves, then have a couple of overpayed 20 somethings with decent voices decide who has REAL talent?

How do you even sell this to executives?

Simon, I had alot of respect for you until you pulled this stunt. (Hiring a whoredashian). Arm twisted by Seacrest much??? You can take your whole show and shove it. We don't do Kartrashians here.

Who the f*** even watches that obviously scripted karaoke show? The X-Factor is just as phony, badly written and acted as any of the Kardashian shows so I guess Khloe will have some experience as far as that goes. I really have no clue how the f*ck X-Factor is still on the air. It's painfully awful.
