With the Osbournes hosting the next American Music Awards, the telecast could prove more edgy than in the past. But show producer Dick Clark is not concerned about his decision to enlist the services of the often-foul-mouthed Ozzy Osbourne and his now-famous family.

Clark said, “Well, there’s a lot of talk about the Osbournes, everybody’s stirring up this worry, worry, worry! The only person that’s worried is the ABC censor lady. She’s a tad concerned but, you know, I said to her, ‘They’re professionals. It’s gonna be fine…I hope.'”

The 30th annual American Music Awards take place January 13 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, airing nationally on ABC. Top nominees include Ashanti, Eminem, Nelly, Linkin Park, and Creed.
