LATEST: Sir Paul McCartney has disappointed pal Ozzy Osbourne by declining an opportunity to duet with the rocker at the 2008 Brit Awards. The former Black Sabbath singer - who will co-host the ceremony with his wife/manager Sharon - was ecstatic at the prospect of fulfilling his lifelong dream of sharing the stage with the former Beatle. But MCCartney, 65, has since decided to perform a simple solo set instead. He says, "You can either go for something wow or just do a couple of hits - I've opted for the latter. "I'm quite happy to be just doing stuff that I hope the audience will like." He adds, "This year will be outstanding - because Ozzy is presenting." The annual awards ceremony will take place in London on 20 February (08).
