    Sharon Osborne - Judge


    Sharon Osborne

    Sharon Osbourne joins as a judge on "America's Got Talent," NBC's summer reality competition series, which brings the variety format back to the forefront of American culture.

    Osbourne and her rock icon husband, Ozzy Osbourne, took America by storm in 2002 when they starred with their family in the reality series "The Osbournes," which won an Emmy as Outstanding Non-Fiction Program that year. Osbourne also served as co-producer and executive producer of the series.

    Her career in the music industry has spanned several years, managing numerous successful artists' careers over the years, including Ozzy's. In 1996, she created the successful Ozzfest summer touring festival, which went on to become a prime rock occasion and celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2006.

    Osbourne's additional television credits include judging on the U.K.'s "The X Factor" from 2004-06 and guest starring on "Will & Grace," NBC's "Days of our Lives" and "Punk'd," among many other American series. Plus, she hosted her own daytime talk show, "The Sharon Osbourne Show," and has appeared on "The 46th Annual Grammy Awards," "The 54th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards," "The 2003 MTM Video Awards," and "The 30th Annual American Music Awards." She's also the author of her autobiography, "Sharon Osbourne Extreme: My Autobiography."

    Ah yes. Because Brandy is all set to go to on trial for manslaughter... so they bring in a 2nd British judge, to help you know... emphasize the "America" part of the title...

    Meanwhile, The Hoff is left holding the bag representing the U.S. (and Germany, and Jack Daniels, and Budweiser, and Crazytown).

    I think she will be good. She will probably not hold back and tell the competitors what she really thinks. Could be fun.

    I heard there going to have a new lady judge every season to replace the existing one.

    All true - and all very funny.

    I should have qualified my remarks. All funny except the manslaughter issue - which is very, very tragic.

    I watched this last night, and I though Sharon was great. There was no need for Piers to start telling the cheerleading kid that her mother is an evil manipulator. By all means turn the kid down, but don't try to destroy the child's relationship with her mother, especially since the mother seemed like a nice sort. I usually enjoy his comments, but that really was cruel and unnecessary. I loved it when Sharon stormed out.

    I also thought he was unbecomingly nasty to the child singer who sang "I'm Telling You I'm Not Going." He could have said more or less the same thing without being so vicious. It was NOT amusing to see a grown man really trying hard to publicly humiliate a child.

    That whole bit with Sharon exiting in a huff and the drama that followed seemed awfully contrived and Springer-esque to me.

    Sharon Osbourne Spills Talent's Backstage Secrets
    by Mary Murphy

    America's Got Talent's new judge, the irrepressible Sharon Osbourne, tells it like it is about the Hoff, hissy fits and calling it quits. (NBC's AGT next airs tonight at 8 pm/ET.)

    TV Guide: How do you feel about replacing Brandy as a judge on America's Got Talent?
    Sharon Osbourne: I do not feel I am replacing Brandy. She is a gorgeous girl. I am old enough to be her grandmother.

    TV Guide: Before the second season of America's Got Talent even premiered, there were rumors flying about feuds. Is it true you walked off the set the first week?
    Osbourne: Yeah, I did. It was a day where there was one young contestant after another. [Fellow judge] Piers [Morgan] has a definite dislike for children or younger artists. It was appalling behavior. I just couldn't take the way he was talking to them. And it was not just the children he was being particularly appalling to everybody that day. I just had it. I was ready to scream.

    TV Guide: So then you left. How far did you get?
    Osbourne: I ripped up all my papers for all the contestants for that day and the next. And then I stormed off to my dressing room, took off my suit and was like, "Get the car we are going home."

    TV Guide: And then what happened?
    Osbourne: The director got [executive producer] Simon [Cowell] on the phone. Simon is always the voice of reason. He had his entrepreneur's hat on, and he said, "You have got to be professional. You signed a contract here, and you could really get into a lot of trouble. You have worked with worse people in your life. You can handle this."

    TV Guide: Did you then return to the set?
    Osbourne: No. I sat down and phoned my husband and my kids, and had a little a cup of tea. Ozzy is a fan of the show. So he said, "Oh, I want to go to the finale." [Son] Jack said, "Mom, [Piers] would love to get rid of you. If you quit, he gets his way."

    TV Guide: What's with the animosity between you and Piers? Have you tried to work it out?
    Osbourne: I never sat down with Piers, just the two of us. Nor would I. I talk to him about what we are doing, but in between contestants there is no communication. It is not that we don't get along, it's that we just don't have any sort of relationship. I wouldn't hang out with him or go have a cup of tea.

    TV Guide: What was the mood on the set like after that video surfaced showing judge David Hasselhoff drunk, eating a hamburger on the floor?
    Osbourne: Obviously David was very upset and we were very upset for him. It was very unfair. The man didn't do anything wrong. How many people do we know who have been drunk in their own homes and done silly things? The man did not hurt anybody. He was not abusive. So what if he was drunk?

    TV Guide: What did you say to him that day?
    Osbourne: Hey, we are all behind you. You did nothing wrong. None of us is perfect.

    TV Guide: In the midst of all the drama, you did manage to judge the new acts. Who was the strangest?
    Osbourne: You see complete extremes of talent on this show. There was a ventriloquist woman singing with her mouth closed. She never moved her body, just stood there like a statue singing. It was ridiculous. We also had a guy who was running on a treadmill, making a drink with eggs and fruit in a blender, and painting all at the same time. When he came flying off this treadmill, paint went on the floor.

    TV Guide: Do you have a hidden talent?
    Osbourne: Probably dancing. Ozzy and I used to dance a lot. He's good. We don't have time much anymore. He [just started] his world tour.

    TV Guide: You have judged reality shows in England and America. What are the differences?
    Osbourne: People here are more extreme in their talent or lack thereof. In England you get more gray, more middle of the road, not particularly brilliant or not particularly bad. Here it's one way or the other.
