Reports say Ozzy will follow in wife Sharon's footsteps
Ozzy Osbourne is being lined up to join the X Factor judging panel, according to reports this morning (April 18).
The Sun reports that the 62-year-old metal singer has been approached for a seat on the judging panel for the TV talent show, a role his wife Sharon Osbourne held between 2004 and 2007.
A source said of the approach: “Ozzy would be a controversial choice but he can really bring something different to the show. Sharon was a big hit and we think Ozzy can do well too.”
If Ozzy were to accept the offer, it would mark a big U-turn in the Black Sabbath frontman’s opinion of the show. He previously said: “It’s about killing music to make light entertainment. It should be about music and talent, but it’s not.”
