Britney Spears may not be the only Season 2 newcomer who won’t be at The X Factor next season. New reports suggest that the show won’t be asking co-host Khloe Kardashian to return to the Fox singing competition.
The NY Post had a show insider that confirmed the rumor. The X Factor will reportedly keep Mario Lopez as host for Season 3, but “not Khloe.” The decision wasn’t probably a personal thing, or even due to performance as Khloe did pretty good for someone who has no hosting experience prior this gig.
Lopez, on the other hand, has plenty of hosting gigs aside from X Factor. He’s the host of “Extra” and America’s Best Dance Crew, among others.
Another change for next season’s X-Factor is the third judge’s seat now that Britney Spears has left the show. Cheryl Cole is reportedly in talks to join Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato.
As of today, all talent casting, replacements and letting-gos remain rumors. No official decisions have been announced yet, so Khloe Kardashian still has a chance to come back next season.
