For all the chatter over who may next judge The X Factor - Britney Spears, for $20 million? - it's easy to forget: the show is also without a host for season two.
And that remains the case, E! News reports, even after the show asked Darren Criss about the gig.
"They were after him," an X Factor insider said. "But there's no way he could have done it with everything he has going on."
Criss stars as Blaine on Glee and also appeared on Broadway earlier this year, earning strong reviews for his role in How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
Do you think Criss would make a good X Factor judge?
