We now have yet another edition of hosting rumors regarding “The X Factor,” and despite some claims that we could know our emcees before the premiere, that is not necessarily a sure thing anymore. Instead, we have a situation here where Simon Cowell may want to stretch this decision out simply to ensure that he has gotten it right at the end of the day.
According to a report from E! News, we yet again have the newest collection of people in the running for the gig … but you also have to wonder whether there is any bias here given that the site’s two listed favorites are also stars of E! shows. Khloe Kardashian and Kevin Jonas does look good on paper. They should both be able to command the stage without having to balance a commitment on the same level as what Kevin McHale would have to do with “Glee.” Some of the other people still supposedly in the running include BET star Rosci Diaz, “Extra” host Mario Lopez, supermodel Crissy Teigen, and former “High School Musical” star Corbin Bleu, who made it far during the hosting search last season.
Out of this list, we really do believe that Khloe is going to land the female spot based mostly on her popularity and her ability to have fun out on the stage. She’s also friends via Kim with judge Demi Lovato, so there is natural chemistry there. If the show does nab the Kardashian sibling, the next logical move would be to bring in someone like Jonas or Bleu, who would bounce off of Khloe’s energy well and also bring a little bit more of a musical perspective to things.
Do you at this point even care about who is hosting, especially since this search as gone on for so terribly long? If you want to hear some more of what Demi and Britney Spears are saying about the new season, be sure to visit the link here.
