Lea tells HollywoodLife.com her ‘Glee’ co-star ‘would be amazing’ on the reality competition series.

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 HollywoodLife.com 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.”

HollywoodLife.com 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?
