Darren Criss Offered X Factor Hosting Opportunity

But he turned it down!

After a round of heavy firings, the USA X Factor has found itself a little short staffed.

We've just learned that our belovedDarren Criss was offered a job to host the show, replacing Steve Jones with his own brand of seksi. Unfortunately, Darren won't be heading to the Factor stage. Our favorite Gleek is just too damn busy.

We already have his response according to a show insider:

"They were after him. But there’s no way he could have done it with everything he has going on."

We're sure he very politely declined the offer.

It would've been nice to see him as a host but you can't blame the guy for being too successful to have time for it. He's one of the only ones 100% locked for next season of Glee. He can't turn away from that!

    He's NOT our favorite Gleek!!!! I'm so sick of this guy already, and I'm a 19 year old girl!!!



  2. 2

    He is good on Glee but he has not been around enough for a judge on xfactor! To many other better choices out there!

    Seriously?!! Out of all of the amazing singers/artists out there, they want to potentially think about this kid? So the show truly is all about rating and money and not about real talent. SMDH

    Wow he does have a lot on his plate. I'd like to see him go back to Broadway.

    He's not one of the only ones locked 100% for next season…… Cory Monteith, Chris Colfer, Lea Michele, Naya Rivera have all confirmed they're going to be on the show next season. Also Kevin McHale and Jenna Ushkowitz's characters clearly confirmed that they are juniors which means they will be coming back next year. So, excluding Darren that's already six people. Get your facts straight Perez.
