Khloe Kardashian is ‘X Factor’ USA frontrunner, confirms Simon Cowell


Simon Cowell has announced that Khloe Kardashian is in the running to host The X Factor USA.

The reality star was first rumoured to join the judging panel in July.

Cowell has now confirmed that Kardashian is being considered during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“We have screentested a load of people,” he said. “I know who I would like, but no, I’ve got to get it approved by the network, so I think it would be wrong to say at this point just in case the network say no.”

DeGeneres asked Cowell to name some possible candidates and he replied,

“It could be a Kardashian. It could be a Kardashian. I think that would work.

“I mean, I’m quite a fan of not putting hosts on this show because I think it’s going to give it a different dynamic, so we’ve got to find people who’ve got a great chemistry. But Khloe’s definitely up there in the running.”

The X Factor USA will premiere on Wednesday (September 12) on Fox.
