Ozzy Osbourne (opens in new tab) has released a video of his performance from the American Music Awards earlier this week.

The Black Sabbath (opens in new tab) legend took to the stage at The Forum in Los Angeles with Post Malone, Travis Scott and Andrew Watt to play the track Take What You Want. It was only the second time Ozzy had played live this year after his recent health woes (opens in new tab).

The video captures footage from before, during and after the performance which was filled with flames and pyro – something which concerned Ozzy’s wife and manager Sharon Osbourne.

Speaking on The Talk earlier this week, she said: “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 being set on fire. Please don't move!’

“And then, of course, he's moving around, and I'm going, 'Oh god! Did we put hair spray on him?' At the end of it, Andrew Watt, the guitar player, goes ‘boom’ with his guitar, and I'm like, 'Yes!'

“You know what? To be able to get up with Post and Travis Scott, it was just amazing.”

Ozzy is expected to release his new studio album Ordinary Man in January, and has so far released  the singles Under The Graveyard and Straight To Hell and will head out on the road in 2020 for his rescheduled No More Tours 2 dates (opens in new tab).
