Sharon’s not one to let her personal life get in the way of her career! The newly single lady officially has rejoined the U.K.’s ‘X-Factor’ as a judge !
Sharon Osbourne and Ozzy Osbourne may be on the rocks, but her career is going strong! The Talk co-host is returning to co-host The X Factor alongside Nicole Scherzinger, Louis Walsh, and creator Simon Cowell for season 13 — right in the middle of her nasty split from her husband.
The panel will replace last season’s panel, Rita Ora, Cheryl Fernandez and Nick Grimshaw,who actually drew in the show’s lowest-ever season season finale overnight ratings — so of course, let’s bring back the royalty!
Of course, Sharon was one of the OG judges from 2004 to 2007, then returned again in 2013. “I’m overjoyed about going back to The X Factor, sitting with Lou, Lou, gorgeous Nicole and naughty Simon,” she said in a statement. “But most of all, I can’t wait to meet [Simon’s] baby Eric.”
Nicole judged in 2012 and 2013 and was also very excited to be back. “I can’t wait to be back in the UK and on the show with the best Judges sitting alongside me on the panel. I’m excited about discovering, mentoring and winning with an exciting new act this year. And having had winning contestants in the past, Simon knows I will do it.”
Sharon of course made her first appearance after announcing her split from Ozzy on May 10– bringing out lemonade onto The Talk stage, referencing his rumors of allegedly cheating on her with a hairdresser.
“At this point, today, I have no idea what I’m going to be doing for the rest of my life. I don’t know where I’m going, who I’m going with…I just need time to think and really think about myself and what I want,” Sharon admitted, also adding that he now lives at the house and she has moved out. When asked if she will stay married to Ozzy, she said, “I honestly don’t know. I can’t answer that because I don’t know what I want. When I know what I’m going to do with the rest of my life, you’ll be the first to know. I’ve got to follow my heart, and I don’t even know what my heart is telling me right now.”
Well at least she has a great X Factor team behind her, as well as her Talk family. Auditions for UK’s season 13 will begin on June 10th at King Power Stadium! Will you be watching?
