X FACTOR NEWS: Glee’s Darren Criss Turns Down Hosting Gig!

Glee star Darren Criss was offered the hosting gig for X Factor, but he turned it down!

He “politely declined the gig,” according to E!.

Ever since Steve Jones got the boot as the show’s host, show bigwig Simon Cowell  has been on the hunt for a replacement.

According to E!, Darren won’t be joining the show “because of his busy schedule, plus he’d rather spend his time singing and dancing than hosting. A source tells E!, “They were after him. But there’s no way he could have done it with everything he has going on.”
