Ozzy Osbourne
Ozzy Osbourne's wife, Sharon, has arranged for the rocker to have an on-stage performance of 'Live and Let Die' with his idol, Paul McCartney, on 2008 BRIT Awards.


Beside taking the role as BRIT Awards 2008 host with his wife Sharon, Ozzy Osbourne will also highlight the event with a special performance. The rocker will team up with Paul McCartney to perform a duet which he had been dreamed of.

A self-confessed McCartney fan, Ozzy admitted that the ex-Beatles member's latest album 'Memory Almost Full' was his favorite in 2007. "McCartney's a genius. The Beatles were the greatest band ever," Ozzy gushed.

The duet on BRITs, where McCartney will also be honored with 'Outstanding Contribution to Music', was arranged by Sharon who told The Sun, "They go together really well. It will be amazing." The pair are slated to sing Bond theme 'Live and Let Die'.

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

On related news, it has been confirmed that McCartney's voice which is featured on the original version of Michael Jackson's 'The Girl is Mine' will proceed to be included in MJ's 25th Anniversary issue of 'Thriller', due February 12 via Epic.
