Fox has just announced that Khloe Kardashian has been fired from the ‘X Factor’.
The network released a statement minutes ago, saying Khloe will not be returning as a host for Season 3, but Mario Lopez definitely will.
Fox did not give a reason for dropping the Kardashian sister, but said, “We really enjoyed working with her and wish her all the best in her future endeavours.“
Khloe’s performance as a judge was not as great as the network hoped and viewers watched her struggle each episode.
Back in December 2012 , Khloe revealed in an interview with MTV News that she would love to come back for another season.
“For me, when I was asked if I wanted to do this, I was so blown away. And the fact that Simon has given me the opportunity — I’ve never hosted a thing in my life. To do something on this magnitude, I’m so honored and blessed and I just love that I’ve been able to grow through this whole experience. So I’ve had a phenomenal time.”
Meanwhile, judges Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato have been signed on for the new season.
“I’m thrilled Mario is back for Season Three of The X Factor,” Simon Cowell said a statement. “Hosting a live show and keeping the judges – especially Demi – in line, is not an easy job, but Mario is a pro and we are glad he’s coming back.”
