After months of rumours, Simon Cowell might have dropped the biggest hint yet about the new ‘X Factor’ judging panel.
Simon Cowell has reportedly ‘confirmed’ that Sharon Osbourne will be joining the new ‘X-Factor’ judging panel. According to The Sun, Sharon will return to the show later this year, alongside fellow former judges Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh.
Is Sharon Osbourne set for an ‘X Factor’ return?
When asked about Sharon while he was promoting the new series of ‘America’s Got Talent’, Simon reportedly said: “I think she and I are going to work on a show together in the UK. We mainly have a love relationship. It is always back to love.”

Ozzfest Meets Knotfest... meets Cringefest!
It was such a cringeworthy moment that it was almost painful for everyone involved, but Ozzy Osbourne and Sharon Osbourne were forced to put their game faces on and pretend all was well as they re-united briefly in a Hollywood press conference to announce Ozzfest Meets Knotfest yesterday (May 12th 2016).
Things still looked tense between Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne
Unfortunately, Sharon is still acting as husband Ozzy's manager despite their very recent break-up, so she deserves a huge amount of respect for bravely attending the latest press announcement despite knowing that questions would be raised about their future together as a couple. Needless to say, it was as awkward as you could have imagined it would be.
Black Sabbath singer returns to San Antonio.
Ozzy Osbourne has changed since his early Black Sabbath days. He's all but done away with the alcohol and drugs of his band career and is very much a family man - and certainly refrains from urinating on historic effigies. Thus, the shock rocker has returned to San Antonio to (according to reports) publicly apologise for relieving himself at the Alamo 30 years ago.
Ozzy Osbourne goes back to the Alamo
As he's previously stated, when one is heavily drunk, one does stupid things and the Prince of Darkness is no exception. In 1982, during what was one of the most substance-fuelled, messy rock tours in history, Osbourne - dressed in his wife Sharon Osbourne's dress because she had hidden his clothes - promptly emptied his bladder on the 60 foot cenotaph across the road from the Alamo; a memorial commemorating those who died during the Battle of the Alamo in Texas in the 1800s. He was subsequently arrested for public intoxication and given a lifelong ban from the city of San Antonio ahead of a planned show at the Hemisphere Arena.

Sabbath wrapped a massive reunion tour early last year, and are making plans to get back out on the road one last time in 2016.
Heavy metal pioneers Black Sabbath have announced details of what they claim will be their “final tour” early next year.
Billed in the band’s press release as “the final tour from the greatest metal band of all time”, ‘The End’ tour covers a number of North American cities. It kicks off in Omaha, Nebraska on January 20th 2016 and ends on February 25th at New York’s Madison Square Garden, having taken in 17 dates on the way. There will then be seven dates in Australia and New Zealand running from April 15th-30th.

The Black Sabbath singer wanted to show his appreciation for the Louisville Leopard Percussionists after watching their cover of ‘Crazy Train’.
Ozzy Osbourne has donated $10,000 to the Louisville Leopard Percussionists who back in 2012 posted an an all-percussion cover of his 1980 hit ‘Crazy Train’ on Youtube. The video has so far amassed over 800,000 Youtube views since its upload, but it seems the Black Sabbath frontman only just got round to checking it out.
Ozzy donated to the Louisville teens after watching their rendition of ‘Crazy Train’ on YouTube.
According to Louisville’s Courier-Journal, Osbourne sent the musical group a cheque for $10,000 along with a note which read, ‘Myself, my whole family and my fans all loved your rendition of 'Crazy Train.' Keep up the good work. God Bless, Ozzy Osbourne’
Kelly Osbourne has reportedly decided to quit 'Fashion Police' but who will replace her?
Kelly Osbourne has left E!'s Fashion Police following a racist remark made by her co-host, Giuliana Rancic. Rancic made a comment on Monday's Fashion Police Oscars special about Zendaya Coleman's hair. "Like I feel like she, she smells like patchouli oil. Or weed. Yeah, maybe weed," Rancic said of Coleman's dreadlocks. Although Rancic has apologised, Osbourne was allegedly furious with Rancic for her remark and has decided to leave Fashion Police as a result.

People across the world got together with friends on 22nd February to watch the Academy Awards - and for Sir Elton John, those friends happened to be some of the biggest names in entertainment!
Since 1992, EJAF (Elton John AIDS Foundation) has raised over 321 million USD to help combat AIDS/HIV. One of the biggest events on EJAF's calendar is that of the Academy Awards Ceremony - for the last 23 years, Sir Elton John has hosted a special Academy Awards viewing party, in which celebrities from all areas of the entertainment industry come together to watch the Oscars, whilst raising money for the foundation. This year was no exception.

Of course, as with any Oscar party, members of the Hollywood elite were in attendance, like Alec and Hilaria Baldwin. But also, tremendous musical talent flocked to West Hollywood Park in Los Angeles. In addition to Sir Elton John, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne were there to pose for pictures, as were Miley Cyrus, LIL' KIM and Kylie Minogue. Moby and Beck also stopped by to help raise awareness for the fight against HIV/AIDS.
Ozzy says he wants to record with the band again, “sooner rather than later.”
Black Sabbath have one more album and a tour in the pipeline
Speaking to Metal Hammer, Osbourne said the band will be working with producer Rick Rubin again to record the follow up to 2013’s hugely successful 13 album.

Music fans have named Ozzy Osbourne the hardest artist to understand, a poll reveals.
Music fans have named Lady GaGa, Miley Cyrus and Rihanna in their top ten hardest artists to understand lyrically. 2000 people took part in the poll, which was created by Blinkbox music, a music streaming service. The poll aimed to find out which artist's lyrics fans find the hardest to decipher.
Music fans have named Ozzy Osbourne the hardest artist to understand
Ozzy Osbourne bagged first place as the artist whose music is hardest to make out. Fans are often left confused about what the Black Sabbath frontman is saying in his songs. It’s unclear whether they are able to understand him when he isn’t singing, as demonstrated by his bizarre Grammys intro speech.
The world-beating rocker couldn't sort himself out in front of Beatles company.
You’d think someone of Ozzy Osbourne’s status wouldn’t be star struck by anyone, but the legendary rocker was left speechless when he was tasked with introducing fellow musician, Ringo Starr at The Grammy Awards.
Ozzy Attended The Grammys With His Wife Sharon & Daughter Kelly.
Apparently, he joined his Black Sabbath bandmates on stage to pay tribute to Starr, but immiedietly became overcome with nerves when he saw Sir Paul McCartney and John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono in the crowd looking back at him.

The Black Sabbath frontman evaluates his unintelligible introduction.
Ozzy Osbourne has reflected upon one of the more bemusing incidents of last night's Grammy Awards. The 65 year-old rock star was tasked with introducing former Beatle Ringo Starr at the glitzy music event in Los Angeles. The Grammys organisers had made it simple for the Black Sabbath frontman: all he had to do was stand on stage with his bandmates and read from a teleprompter.
Awards Show Veteran Ozzy Osbourne Fluffed His Lines.
Ozzy, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler headed to the stage for the introduction and the singer began to read the script. However, Ozzy soon lost pace and jumbled up his words to form an incoherent stream of babble, according to Fox News. Tony and Geezer burst into laughter at their band chum's ineptness but Twitter reactions soon took the shape of a collective eye-roll as exasperated Grammys viewers questioned the rocker's sobriety.
Sharon Osbourne recently revealed that she only split from her rocker husband Ozzy as a way to not seem "weak" regarding her stance on his alcoholism and substance abuse.
Reality television star Sharon Osbourne always knew that she would take her rocker husband Ozzy Osbourne back. Last April, the couple separated briefly when Ozzy began drinking and abusing prescription medication, Sharon admitted that she only made a stance in the first place to make a point and not appear to be "weak".
She explained her decision, saying: ''You put up this front because it's what you should do. You feel, 'This is what I should do. I can't be seen to be weak. I can't let somebody disrespect me this much so I have to come out with this.' But in my gut, I knew I'm not going anywhere, you know, but I have to give him a hard time because if I don't it's going to happen in two weeks again.'' The couple have three children together, Aimee, Kelly and Jack.

Kelly Osbourne announced Matthew Mosshart proposed to her whilst they were holidaying in the Caribbean. The couple are both certain each other is "the one". Osbourne says she has drawn inspiration from her parent's marriage.

The couple met in 2011 at Kate Moss' wedding. They have avoided answering questions on the possibility of their engagement, even as late as January this year. Mosshart's connection to Moss is through her husband Jamie Hince. Mosshart's sister Alison is in the same band, The Kills, as Hince.

The boys from Birmingham have brought their doom-laden riffs to the top of the Billboard chart for the first time ever, but it might not be the last
Black Sabbath are back, well and truly too, with the Gods of metal scoring their first ever number one album on the US Billboard Chart, with their comeback album 13 shooting to the top of the charts after nearly 50 years of waiting. The album ended a forty plus year wait for band to return to the top of the UK Album charts when it took the top spot last week, but in scoring their first US number one the band have performed quite a remarkable feat.
Upon hearing the news, the active members of the group each issued a statement exclaiming their shock at the success of the album, with guitarist Tony Iommi stating, "The news is absolutely amazing--we couldn't have imagined this would happen. We have the greatest fans," whilst bassist Geezer Butler had this to say; "I'm absolutely stunned. Thank you all world wide for being the best, and most patient, fans ever."
Frontman Ozzy Osbourne was equally as overwhelmed with the success saying; "There have been so many amazing highlights in our long career. To finally have our first #1 album in the U.S. is another incredible milestone for Black Sabbath. Thank you to all of our fans for their support and loyalty."
It all went wrong for this award show; lucky it wasn't The Oscars
Live award shows are about meticulous planning, logistics and practice, but you can’t legislate for individual mistakes. Unfortunately, there were too many individual mistakes to count, culminating in a car crash of an award show, which, in turn, made for pretty funny viewing.
We had Carrie Fisher talking openly about drugs – a bit too openly for some of the audience, award givers reading telecast prompts like “Wrap it up!” instead of actually wrapping it up, and Robin Meade performing a song in an evening gown while barefoot because of an advert break that was too short. It was, all in all, YouTube fodder gold, and we loved it for that. “Hi, I’m Carrie, I’m an alcoholic. And a drug addict,” explained Fisher before announcing the winner of best animated series. “Our nominees take us into worlds we have never seen before,” she said. “Unless, like Ozzy and myself, you have taken acid. We have the same dealer, in which case this category doesn’t apply to you. Our nominees have not taken acid, at least not with me, which really is the only way to do it, as most of you know,” she said and then nodded at the still-seated Lucas, “Right, George?” There sure were some awkward looks for that one.
Akin to the night itself, this piece has focussed on the technical gaffes and not the actual winners, so here they are. “Days of Our Lives,” grabbed the big one: Best Drama, while “CBS News Sunday Morning,” won Best Morning Show, beating “Good Morning America” and “Today.” “Dr. Oz” won in the information talk show category and Doug Davidson won for Best Actor on “The Young and the Restless."

Could Black Sabbath battle to the top of the charts?
Black Sabbath are back and it looks like they're back with a bang too, with the metal overlords looking set to score their first number one on the album chart in 43 years. 13 was released at the beginning of this week and it has been slowly creeping up the charts, and it could have a good chance of reaching the coveted spot by the end of the week.The album - the first to feature the (mostly) original lineup of Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler (drummer Burt Ward was forced to sit out the recording process because of health reasons) in 35-years - currently sits at the top of the mid-week charts, however it cannot officially claim to be an official number one until the end of the week. With no real threat in the charts to challenge it for the top spot - bar Liam Gallagher’s Beady Eye perhaps - so it looks like the band may be on to recreate the feat their 1970 album Paranoid.
The album was produced by acclaimed Def Jam co-founder Rick Rubin and features Rage Against The Machine’s Brad Wilkes sitting in for Ward, and critics are hailing the album as a return to the doom-laded guitar riffs of the band's classic albums from the 70's. Frontman Osbourne declared his surprise at the album's success earlier today, saying “I can’t believe Black Sabbath may have its first number one album in 43 years.”
The band will continue their world tour in support of the album over the rest of the year, having already played in New Zealand, Australia and parts of Asia. The tour reaches London's O2 Arena in December and will arrive at Houston's Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavillion on July 25.
The bassist for the metal Gods has said that he would be up for making another Sabbath album if the rest of the group are interested
Black Sabbath made their monumental return to the studio to record their first album with an almost entirely original line-up (drummer Bill Ward was not present for recording because of health problems) since 1978's Never Say Die, with 13 being released later this month.
Confident from how things went this time round, bassist Geezer Butler has now said that despite it taking some 35 years for the group to record their new album together, the band could be persuaded to go back to the studio much sooner this time around. Although touted as the 'final' album from the band following a string of successful reunion shows over the past year, Geezer was speaking with Billboard this week when he revealed that, like the title of the 1978 album, that he is holding on to a 'never say never' resolution as to where the metal founders might go next.
"Let's put it this way; it's taken us 35 years to do this one," Butler told Billboard, adding, "So if there's gonna be (another) album there's gonna be an album but I don't want to say if there's going to be a follow-up. I wouldn't mind doing another Sabbath album with them, though."

Rumours surface that Sharon Osbourne will return to TV talent show, with record-breaking salary
Sharon Osbourne’s private life may well be in turmoil but she doesn’t seem to be allowing it to affect her career as the Daily Mail reports today that she’s reportedly landed a £2 million deal to return to x factor in the UK. If the reports are accurate, it will mean that not only will Osbourne return to the show, after leaving in 2007, but she will become the highest paid judge in the show’s history.
It is thought that the show’s creator, Simon Cowell, is ‘desperate’ to have Sharon return to the show to boost ratings, which have been steadily dropping in the last two years. Although Sharon has made a number of guest apperances on the show since she left – namely at Louis Walsh’s house in the ‘judges’ houses’ rounds, this will be the first time in six years that she’s actually been one of the official judges. Known for her no-nonsense approach, Cowell is clearly looking to shake up the line-up on the panel.
Recently, it has been reported that Sharon Osbourne’s marriage to husband Ozzy Osbourne (the Black Sabbath singer) is on the rocks. Ozzy made a public announcement that his addiction to drink and drugs has reared its head again and has taken its toll on their marriage. Regardless, both Sharon and Ozzy seem to remain focused on their careers, with Ozzy about to embark on a tour with Sabbath and Sharon apparently planning a return to the high profile TV show.
Sharon Osbourne's 911 call in January reveals Ozzy rant while he has admitted to using drugs during that time.
Rumours that the Osbourne couple, who famously broadcasted their family affairs in the MTV reality show 'The Osbournes' in 2002, are set to divorce after more than 30 years of marriage have been circling like wildfire around the internet over the past few weeks. And talking of wildfire, new evidence suggests there might be more to that blaze that took place at their home in January 2013. TMZ released Sharon's 911 tape from the incident in February in which we hear her breathlessly asking for the fire department to be called to the house. 'We had a fire in my room it was a candle. Do you think you could send a fireman? My husband put it out but I just want to be sure', she explained before later adding, rather sharply, 'It set the table it was on on fire.' On re-listening, Ozzy can be heard shouting what sounds like it could be an obscenity incoherently in the background as Sharon takes her time to speak to emergency services.
This and the fact that he has addressed the rumours on his Facebook page with the following message: 'For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs. However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober. Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing', suggests that there could've been something else going on that night as Ozzy is well known for acting erratically and often dangerously under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
