Artie might be coming to ‘X Factor!’ Simon Cowell has Britney Spears and Demi Lovato on the judging panel for Season 2 of the show, but he’s still searching for a new host (or two) to replace Steve Jones. A new report suggests that ‘Glee‘ star Kevin McHale is in the running for the host duties.

TV Guide‘s inside sources have confirmed that McHale is among the candidates to host ‘X Factor’ when the show returns to the air on Wednesday, September 12. ‘Glee’ resumes the following day. McHale would have to fit in the ‘X Factor’ gig with his role on ‘Glee,’ but both programs air on FOX so executives would probably want to make the arrangement work. It would be a win-win for both shows, right?

Would the 24-year-old be up for the challenge? McHale exuded charisma and charm when he co-hosted the 2012 Teen Choice Awards with Lovato in July. He appeared on ‘X Factor’ once last season, hosting a behind-the-scenes feature in the season premiere.

Cowell reportedly wants two hosts, one male and one female. Among the ladies whose names have been mentioned for the role are Miley Cyrus, Khloe Kardashian, Erin Andrews and Kelly Osbourne.

Would you like to see Kevin McHale host ‘X Factor?’ And which female co-host would be his ideal partner?
