"I'm a big fan of The X Factor," Kardashian told E! Online last month, after reports surfaced that she was among the finalists who auditioned for the gig.

"I've always wanted to do hosting or talk show hosting, so it's definitely something that I would love to do and would be honored to do," she added. "I love Simon [Cowell]."

The X Factor returns for its second season on Sept. 12 (8 p.m. ET), with new faces Britney Spears and Demi Lovato on the judges' panel.
