x factor hosts khloe kardashian mario lopez 'X Factor' hosts Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez: How'd they do?“The X Factor” kicked off the live shows Wednesday night (Oct. 31) and in the process, introduced new co-hosts Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez. How do you think they did?

Lopez was good, we thought. Clearly at ease, not nervous and very charismatic. He does, however, have considerably more hosting experience than Khloe, so it would’ve been pretty surprising if he had been the weaker link.

And not that Khloe was bad. She wasn’t. First off, she looked fabulous. We kind of expected her to tower over Mario, but she did not and that’s even in some decently high heels, so it turns out Khloe isn’t quite the tall as we thought — Kim and Kourtney must be shrimps.

But hosting-wise, Khloe did pretty well, we thought. She was clearly nervous, but that’s to be expected. To her credit, she actually got visibly more comfortable and relaxed as the show went on, so at least it won’t be this whole big process of Khloe learning how to host.

We also thought Khloe was also 1000x less awkward than that doofy guy from last year whose name we can’t even remember anymore. Awkward Interrupter Guy.

What do you think, “X Factor” fans? Do you agree with our assessments?
