Now that Steve Jones is only a memory for hosting the first season of “The X Factor USA”, we were curious as to whom Simon Cowell would get to replace him. He said that he wanted two hosts and Kelly Osbourne’s name has been tossed around before this. So it wouldn’t surprise us that she might be taking over presenting duties.
We’re hearing reports that Kelly is set to co-host the show with Kevin McHale. Apparently, Kelly and Kevin have demonstrated their perfect chemistry with one another to Simon and he was left impressed. A source revealed, “Simon thinks Kelly and Kevin are unique picks, and after meeting with both of them, he believes they have perfect chemistry for co-hosting. He loves Kelly’s sass, and thanks to Glee Kevin is an accomplished talent. They bounce off each other brilliantly.”
Still, Simon is still taking other stars into consideration and has yet to make a firm decision. The source went on to say, “Simon is a fickle guy, and there are still kinks that have to be figured out before he’s 100 percent certain he’ll hire Kelly and Kevin.”
