Black Hawk Mines Music (Blogspot
News) - — Mario Lopez and Khloe
Kardashian Odom are officially joining
"The X Factor."
After weeks of speculation, Fox announced
Tuesday that the "Extra" host and the
"Keeping Up with the Kardashians" co-star
will indeed host the second season of the
talent competition. Lopez and Odom will
first appear as hosts during the show's live
broadcasts next month, the network said.
"The worst kept secret in Hollywood is
out," said "X Factor" creator and
judge Simon Cowell in a statement.
"Mario and Khloe are our hosts. They
will debut on our first live show in
November, and I couldn't be
happier."
British television personality Steve
Jones served as the sole host for the
first season of the U.S. edition of the
show.
The addition of Lopez and Kardashian is
the latest shift for the underperforming
singing contest. Britney Spears and Demi
Lovato joined Cowell and L.A. Reid on
"The X Factor" judging panel at the start
of the second season. The pair replaced
Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger.
"I'm very excited to be joining 'The X
Factor' team," said Lopez, who has also
hosted MTV's "America's Best Dance Crew"
for the past seven seasons. "I love the
show, and I've been a big fan of Simon
Cowell and the judges for a long time.
Khloe and I have been friends for years,
and I know we'll be a great team and
have a blast."
The current second season of "X Factor"
is earning solid ratings for Fox, but NBC's
"The Voice" continues to perform better.
Last week, 12.55 million people watched
"The Voice," while "X Factor" was seen by
9.71 million, according to the Nielsen Co.
