LOS ANGELES (AP) - Britney Spears was coolly professional on the first live episode of “The X Factor.” The same can’t be said for new host Khloe Kardashian Odom and her microphone.

Odom, adding to her reality TV credentials, was paired with Mario Lopez to emcee “X Factor” as the singing contest shifted Wednesday from taped to live broadcasts.

Lopez, host of “Extra,” performed like the pro he is. Odom, by contrast, shouted her lines despite the mic clutched in her hand and made awkward small talk with contestants and judge Simon Cowell.

Of the 16 acts featured on the live “X Factor,” four will be cut Thursday by judges Spears, Cowell, Antonio “L.A.” Reid and Demi Lovato. Viewers will decide contestants’ fates in following weeks.
