Reality star Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez will host Season 2 of Fox’s singing competition show. “The worst-kept secret in Hollywood is out, Mario and Khloé are our hosts. They will debut on our first live show in November and I couldn’t be happier,” said Simon Cowell today. “The rumors are true… I will be hosting @TheXFactorUSA this season!!!” tweeted Kardashian about 10 minutes before the official announcement came. “Alright guys, it’s official… I’ll be hosting @TheXFactorUSA ! Looking forward to working with @SimonCowell and the rest of the amazing,” tweeted Lopez at almost the same time. With new judges Britney Spears and Demi Lovato, that makes four new additions to The X Factor’s talent pool this season. Cowell got rid of his former American Idol co-star Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger as judges and Steve Jones as host after X Factor failed to meet ratings expectations in its debut season. Music executive L.A. Reid remains as a judge this season.
