It appears Sharon Osbourne – a major player in the concert industry, wife of rocker Ozzy Osbourne and a pioneer in reality TV – is hanging up her judgeship on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.”
Rumors of Osbourne’s leaving began circulating last week and now it looks as if her latest remarks have sealed the deal.
While trying to console dance group The Untouchables, which was the first eliminated from the competition last night when the show picked its winner, Osbourne told the group as well as the audience that she was leaving too.
“Don’t be sad, little ones, because it’s my last show too,” Osbourne told the group. “So we’re both leaving together.”
Deadline Hollywood sez NBC has already began looking for a replacement. What’s more, the show-biz news blog points out that Howard Stern’s contract with the show runs out this season.
