Osbournes to Host Music Awards Show

The censors may have to stay on their toes when Ozzy Osbourne and his family host the 30th annual American Music Awards.

The three-hour special is scheduled to air live on ABC, starting at 8 p.m. EST Jan. 13.

“I can’t wait to see what Ozzy and the rest of the family have in store for us, and I know the ABC-TV censor is already having dreams, or should I say nightmares, about their live ad-libs,” executive producer Dick Clark said Monday.

The heavy-metal icon, his wife, Sharon, and two of their three children are notorious for their profanity-laced misadventures on the reality show “The Osbournes.” The second season of the MTV series begins Nov. 26.

The American Music Awards are given based on votes from the public in 21 categories, including favorite male and female artist, favorite soundtrack and Internet artist of the year.
