Kevin McHale X Factor

Kevin already has a day job on FOX’s ‘Glee,’ but a source close to ‘The X Factor’ tells EXCLUSIVELY he may be close to having two high-profile positions on the network! Read on for the inside scoop.

Kevin McHale has starred on Glee for the past three years, which you think would be enough work for one guy. But, as TV Guide reports, he’s under consideration to co-host The X Factor when it returns this fall, too!

While no one at FOX would officially comment on the rumor, a source close to the show tells exclusively that Kevin’s work co-hostng this year’s Teen Choice Awards with Demi Lovato was “almost his audition for the show.” They add that already being a member of the FOX family and having hosted a behind-the-scenes feature with Pepsi on last year’s premiere of The X Factor have “given him the front runner spot to be the guy choice as host.”

Simon Cowell reportedly wants a guy and girl hosting panel. While Khloe Kardashian has been rumored to also be a finalist for the co-hosting gig, our source doesn’t believe Kevin would have good chemistry with Khloe. “If there was a choise, FOX would probably pick Kevin over Khloe, unless they audition well together. But [overall, they] believe he would have better chemistry with Kelly Osbourne or Erin Andrews, ” our source says. Kelly and Erin are also rumored potential co-hosts.

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Would you like to see Kevin co-host The X Factor this fall?
