Osbournes to Judge MTV Contest

Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne are launching a new MTV reality series/contest in which a band will win a slot on the Ozzfest 2005 tour.

“Battle for Ozzfest,” which premieres Oct. 25 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, will feature eight bands competing for the Ozzfest prize in addition to touring money, equipment and a possible record deal.

The Osbournes will serve as judges and decide which bands are eliminated from the competition.

Ozzfest, which will celebrate its 10th anniversary next year, grossed more than $19 million from 24 shows reported to Billboard Boxscore.
