Khloe Kardashian Is ‘Hilarious’ on ‘X Factor’ and ‘Doesn’t Put Up With Any Nonsense,’ Says ‘Glee’ Star Kevin McHale (VIDEO)

Even though he lost out to Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez for The X Factor season 2 hosting gig, Glee star Kevin McHale is rooting for the new stars of the hit singing competition show.

“I’ve known both of them for a long time and I think they are both doing an incredible job,” McHale told Celebuzz at the Trevor Live event Sunday in West Hollywood.

The Gleek was one of the reported frontrunners being considered to replace former X Factor host Steve Jones, who wasn’t the only one that didn’t return for the sophomore season of the Fox reality show. Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger were replaced by Britney Spears and Demi Lovato.

So what does McHale think of Kardashian’s hosting chops?

“I think she’s hilarious,” McHale added. “People love her on the show and on her show [with the Kardashian family] too because she doesn’t put up with any nonsense and kinda calls the judges out.”

And switching gears to his own popular Fox TV show that dabbles in a little singing of its own, McHale dishes on what’s coming up in McKinley High’s holiday episode. Think seasonal favorite Love Actually Glee-style.

“My storyline is definitely something we’ve never done before so it’s really cool,” said the 24-year-old actor.
