OZZFEST IDOL

The pair will be judges for budding Ozzfest bands…

Ozzy Osbourne and SHARON OSBOURNE are set to launch a new TV reality show aimed at finding a new band for the forthcoming OZZFEST tour.

The MTV contest will follow eight bands who will battle it out for a place on the bill of next year’s annual jaunt.

The pair will be judges on the Battle for Ozzfest show which is due to start on October 25.

Each episode is set to show the bands being put through events surrounding everyday life on tour.

“Life on the road isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be and our bands are going to find that out, the hard way,” Sharon explained.

The winners will secure a spot on the tour, which is 10 years old in 2005, equipment, tour money and a possible record deal.
