"Glee" star Darren Criss turned down an offer to serve as host of the American version of "The X Factor," show sources told E! News.
Criss declined the job because of his busy schedule, and because he would rather perform than be a host, E! reported.
"They were after him," a show insider said. "But there's no way he could have done it with everything he has going on."
Representatives for Criss and Fox did not comment on the report. E! said.
