Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez made their big entry as hosts of "The X Factor" Wednesday night with the first live show.
While their hosting abilities were fine and dandy, it was Kardashian who really grabbed attention, especially from judge Simon Cowell.
Dressed in a fitted black pencil skirt and a fairly sheer purple blouse with a plunging neckline, Kardashian looked great - and chilly.
"May I say, you're looking very sexy tonight," Cowell told the new host. "I think the air-conditioning's on high tonight. ... That's very distracting."
For the viewers at home who didn't quite catch what Cowell meant, Kardashian explained on Twitter, "I think I had a little nip action earlier LOL."
The night went well overall, as "X Factor's" ratings show the reality competition was a hit with Wednesday's primetime audience. According to The Wrap, preliminary numbers found that 7.4 million viewers tuned in to "X Factor," with a 2.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic.
For Kardashian, her first night was a little nerve-wracking, but fun. "Already half way into the show – and I must say I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new job!!!" she tweeted Wednesday, adding the following day, "I was sooo nervous LOL!" Mario Lopez, meanwhile, posted that he "#HadaBlast!"
The newly coined "Nipples and Dimples" - as a parody Twitter account is named, giving nod to both Kardashian's headlights and Lopez's famous smile - will be back on "X Factor" tonight at 8 p.m. ET on Fox. How do you think they performed?
