On Monday, ‘The X Factor’ producers announced that Mario Lopez will be returning for another season hosting the competition — but co-host Kardashian is OUT!
“Khloe Kardashian will not be returning to co-host The X Factor,” said the producers in a statement. “We really enjoyed working with her and wish her all the best in her future endeavors.”
Simon Cowell added, “I’m thrilled Mario is back for Season Three of The X Factor. Hosting a live show and keeping the judges – especially Demi [Lovato] – in line, is not an easy job, but Mario is a pro and we are glad he’s coming back.”
Cowell and Lovato are the only judges to return, Britney Spears and L.A. Reid are also leaving the show.
