Following the debut of judges Britney Spears and Demi Lovato, “The X Factor,” brought on new co-hosts, Khloe Kardashian Odom and Mario Lopez. The duo made their debut during the first two-hour live show Wednesday night with 16 acts up on the chopping block. The two are nowhere near camera shy, as Odom stars in the hit reality TV series “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” while Lopez anchors entertainment news show “Extra” and MTV’s “America’s Best Dance Crew.”

The two replaced former host, Brit personality Steve Jones, who left at the end of season 1. However, Odom may have not made the first impression she was looking to make, as the Twittersphere exploded with tweets about an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction. She joked about the incident on Twitter after judge Simon Cowell coyly addressed the issue:

“The X Factor” continues on Thursday at 8 p.m. where the judges will reveal the first round of eliminations.
