Those McKinley High kids really have each other’s backs! With the news that Glee star Kevin McHale is a frontrunner to co-host The X Factor this season, we couldn’t resist asking his most famous co-star for her two cents. “If that happens, that would be amazing,” LeaMichele told exclusively Sept. 15 at NYLON and Sony’s September TV Issue Party in Hollywood.

“Anytime I’m recording a song for Glee, I always go to Kevin for his advice,” Lea gushed. “He knows so much about music that I know he would be amazing, and a great piece for that show. … He is smart, funny and great with music; it would be a really wise choice.” recently reported that Kevin McHale and Nick Jonas are frontrunners to co-host alongside all-but-signed hostess Khloé Kardashian. Do you think Kevin is the man for the job?
