During today's (Monday, November 25) episode of her daytime TV talk show "The Talk", Sharon Osbourne dished on husband Ozzy's performance with Post Malone and Travis Scott at last night's American Music Awards.
The BLACK SABBATH singer, who has spent much of 2019 recovering from health issues and surgeries, returned to the stage for a flame-filled performance of "Take What You Want", from Post Malone's latest album, "Hollywood's Bleeding".
"Obviously, it's the American Music Awards, so it's all pop music and pretty little girls coming on one after the other with their little dances," Sharon said. "And then suddenly there's ugly — a lot of guys get up there. And they nailed it. There was more pyro than I've ever seen. And then I'm, like, 'Oh god, Ozzy. Please don't move. Everything has happened to you except set on fire. Please don't move. Don't move.' And then, of course, he's moving around, and I'm going, 'Oh god, please. Did we put hair spray on him?' And then, at the end of it, [Andrew] Watt, the guitar player, goes boom with his guitar, and I'm, like, 'Yes!'" Sharon added: "You know what? To be able to get up with Post and Travis Scott, it was just amazing."
Three days before his American Music Awards appearance, Ozzy joined Post Malone onstage at a show at the Forum in Los Angeles to perform the same song. The performance marked the first time Ozzy stepped on stage since a New Year's Eve performance nearly a year ago.
"Take What You Want", which debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 chart at No. 8, marked Osbourne's first Hot 100 top 10 in over 30 years, as the BLACK SABBATH singer broke the record for the most time between top 10s in the chart's 61-year history.
One of Post's producers, Watt connected with Osbourne after meeting Ozzy's daughter Kelly at a friend's party and pitching her on the idea of Post and Ozzy collaborating together.
