X Factor 2012 boss Simon Cowell has allegedly named Kelly Osbourne and Glee‘s Kevin McHale as the new X Factor USA hosts for the new season premiering in September. X Factor chief Simon Cowell reportedly said he believes the two have “perfect chemistry” to serve as hosts for X Factor 2012.
“Simon thinks Kelly and Kevin are unique picks, and after meeting with both of them, he believes they have perfect chemistry for co-hosting,” a source close to the production reportedly said, according to ShowBizSpy.com.
Kelly Osbourne and Kevin McHale will reportedly host the X Factor 2012 live shows. Kelly Osbourne’s mother, Sharon Osbourne, is a former X Factor UK host and current (but soon to depart) host of America’s Got Talent 2012.
X Factor guru Simon Cowell reportedly “loves Kelly’s sass, and thanks to Glee, Kevin is an accomplished talent. They bounce off each other brilliantly,” the X Factor 2012 source said.
So far, there has been no official confirmation on the X Factor 2012 hosts from Simon Cowell’s reps or the FOX network. X Factor USA 2012 premieres on FOX on September 12-13.
