Sharon Osbourne: 'I'm Relevant to X-Factor Because I Manage Sabbath'
Sharon Osbourne has been defending her return to television talent show the X-Factor after critics have dismissed her of being irrelevant.

As the BBC reports, Osbourne notes that she is still relevant because she manages Black Sabbath, a band who has just had a #1 album in 14 countries.

Host of the Xtra-Factor, Matt Richardson, has defended her return, reiterating Sharon Osbourne's comments:

"[She's] been in music management for 35 years, managing one of the biggest bands in the world.

"She's pretty relevant, they [Black Sabbath] sell out arenas and stadiums under her management.

"So I guess you can't really complain about that can you? Having someone like that on the panel is pretty brilliant."

Osbourne originally left the talent show in 2007. She notes that Simon Cowell "didn't have to do that much persuading" to get her to come back to the program:

"The thing that's so great is, it's still the same crew, so it's like coming back to your family and it just feels just right. It feels really good."
