"The X Factor" kicked off this season's series of live shows Wednesday night with two new co-hosts and an "amazed" Britney Spears!
Khloe Kardashian Odom made her debut alongside Mario Lopez as the reality-singing competition's new co-host and shocked fans with an -- ahem -- revealing wardrobe choice.
Online critics thought that while her hosting skills were a little rusty, her fashion choices were particularly eye-catching. Odom seemed unaware that her sheer blouse put everything on display, with Simon Cowell calling her out during the two-hour live episode.
"You're looking very sexy tonight," the British judge remarked. "I think the air conditioning's on high tonight ... it's very distracting."
According to CBS, Lopez was professional, but "Odom came across like the novice she is, shouting her lines despite the mic clutched in her hand and making awkward small talk with contestants and judge/executive producer Simon Cowell."
Entertainment Weekly said that the co-hosts are "non-entities," but otherwise perfectly capable of hosting the show together.
For her part, the Kardashian sister tweeted her thanks to Lopez for making her feel comfortable:

As for Britney Spears' first live show as a judge, she was relatively subdued, but did heap praise on the contestants. According to MTV, "Spears, well, she seemed a bit dazed and used the word 'amazing,' a lot," with CBS calling her "coolly composed."
