Ozzy Osbourne will receive the Global Icon Award at this year’s MTV EMAs.
Now in its 20th year, the ceremony will take place on the 9th of November at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow. It will be broadcast live from 9pm.
The award is being given in recognition of Osbourne’s work both as a solo artist and as a member of Black Sabbath.
Said Bruce Gillmer, executive vice president of talent and music programming and events for Viacom: “Ozzy’s impact on music and pop culture has been tremendous. For over four decades (and counting!) he’s entertained, influenced, inspired and sometimes shocked legions of die-hard fans around the globe. We’re thrilled and honoured to announce that this year’s MTV Global Icon will be Ozzy Osbourne!”
