"The worst kept secret in Hollywood is out," said Simon Cowell. "Mario and Khloé are our hosts. They will debut on our first live show in November and I couldn't be happier."

"I'm so thrilled to become a part of THE X FACTOR family," said Odom. "I've been a big fan of the show and look forward to working with Simon and all of the judges. It's going to be so much fun!"

"I'm very excited to be joining THE X FACTOR team," said Lopez. "I love the show, and I've been a big fan of Simon Cowell and the judges for a long time. Khloé and I have been friends for years and I know we'll be a great team and have a blast."

Tune in tomorrow, Wednesday, Oct. 17 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), when the judges reveal which four acts in each of the four categories - Teens, Young Adults, Groups and Over 25s - continue and which two acts are eliminated. Then, as the "Judges' Homes" round comes to a close and a new phase of the competition begins, THE X FACTOR returns with special LIVE episodes Thursday, Nov. 1 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) and on a special night, Sunday, Nov. 4 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live /PT tape-delayed) on FOX.
