Ozzy Osbourne’s Son Jack Osbourne To Compete on ABC’s ‘Dancing With the Stars’
Will we be seeing a waltz to Black Sabbath's 'God Is Dead?' on ABC's 'Dancing With the Stars' this season? That could be the case, as Ozzy Osbourne's son Jack has signed on to be one of the celebrity competitors on the show.
Following in the footsteps of his sister Kelly, Jack is the latest Osbourne to compete on the popular dance-competition TV show. Adding to Jack's challenge is the fact that he battle multiple sclerosis, a disease which affects the nervous system, but he sees the show as a vehicle to raise awareness for MS.
"Having been diagnosed with MS and going through that whole roller coaster, I saw it as an opportunity, almost a greater responsibility to keep MS awareness on people's minds," Jack tells USA Today. "Although there is treatment for it, we're no closer to a cure. I'm trying to raise awareness that way."
Jack will be paired with dance pro Cheryl Burke on 'Dancing With the Stars.' His competition includes Snooki ('The Jersey Shore'), Leah Remini ('King of Queens'), Keyshawn Johnson (former NFL star) and others. The season premiere of 'Dancing With the Stars' airs Sept. 16 on ABC.
