Ozzy reality ‘Battle’ set

Contestants will be selected by online voters

MTV and the Osbournes are taking “American Idol” to the heavy-metal level.

Cabler and “Osbournes” stars Ozzy and Sharon are launching “Battle for Ozzfest,” a 12-episode reality competition in which eight rock bands will vie for the chance to perform on Ozzfest’s 10th anniversary tour.

Selected by more than 65,000 online voters, contestants will travel on the same bus and face several challenges each week, including the threat of elimination.

Winning band will not only follow in the footsteps of past Ozzfest performers System of a Down, Incubus and Slipknot but also receive a grand-prize package that includes touring money, new band equipment and a possible record deal.

Series premieres Oct. 25.
