The 'X Factor' Season Finale at CBS Television City

Serious question…did any of you watch the X Factor?  I kept up with some of gossip, but I prefer The Voice.  It seems that the talent show just can't seem to get it together as far as judges are concerned (see you later, Britney Spears!), and now there are rumors that one of the hosts is on the chopping block.

Since brief stint on the show, Khloe Kardashian has been criticized for being awkward and orchestrating nip slips.  There was even a rumor that was being paid by The Voice to do such a horrible job.  That's bad!  Of course, I highly doubt that Khloe was getting cash for her craptastic hosting (it would almost be better if she were…), but the poor girl has no experience other than ridiculous reality shows.  Now, sources are alleging that she may not be back next season.


An insider tells The New York Post, "[Producers] are asking Mario [Lopez] to come back, but not Khloe."  In all fairness, Mario's post-Albert Clifford career has been all about hosting. 

Even a professional hosting expert (That's a thing?  I want that job!) thinks it wasn't a wise choice to put such a novice in the gig…especially when she has to work with someone who has been doing it for years.  Marki Costello shares, “I am sure there was a big percentage of Khloe’s fans who followed her to X Factor, but at the end of the day, when she doesn’t know what she is doing, are you helping your show or hurting it?"  Ouch. 

Not one to mince words, the hosting expert adds, “It was really hard for me to watch Mario with her.  It made me, as a viewer, almost uncomfortable.” 

Let's face it, no one wants to watch something that makes them feel uncomfortable…when I want awkward, I watch GirlsLena Dunham is brilliant!
