Taking a departure from the traditional one-man host in the past four years, 2008 BRIT Awards will have two celebrities bringing the hype to the stage. The 2007 host Russell Brand will hand the baton to eccentric rocker, Ozzy Osbourne and his wife Sharon.

"Ozzy and I have been asked to host many awards shows in the past but this is by far the most prestigious and meaningful, especially for Ozzy as it's about the music," Sharon said. "Ozzy and I are proud to be Brits and are both incredibly honoured to have been asked to help celebrate the best in music."

The annual event will take place at Earl's Court on February 20 and broadcast live on ITV 1. The nominations will be announced on January 14 at London's Roundhouse.
