Now that The X Factor's new celebrity judges, Britney Spears and Demi Lovato, are in place and thriving, the network has begun to put out feelers for a charming and comely host (or two) to bring aboard before the show's premiere in September.
Does this mean we'll see a Kardashian onstage? Quite possibly.
E! News reported this morning that Khloe Kardashian was in talks to possibly host — as are Stacy Keibler, Erin Andrews and Kelly Osbourne.
Last season, the show had only one host, Steven Jones, but Simon Cowell wants two this time, a male and female, which opens a slot for rumored candidates Mario Lopez, Terrence J and Mike Catherwood.
"They're doing the auditions without a host so it's no big deal they don't have hosts right now," the source told E!. "Simon really wants to take his time. The two-person thing didn't work out the first time and he wants to make sure it works this time."
Those behind the scenes say it's very important that the duo have "chemistry," and the show is willing to wait for just the right combo.
Who do you think should host The X Factor?
