It's official - Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez will be the new co-hosts of Fox's The X Factor when the series begins airing its live shows next month. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the two will replace previous host Steve Jones, who departed from the series along with judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger in late January at the end of season one.

Rumors have been floating around about Kardashian joining the show in some form for a while now, so her participation doesn't come as much surprise - reports that Lopez could be joining the show, on the other hand, popped up more recently.
