LONDON, Dec. 10 (UPI) -- Britain's judges on "The X Factor," Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh, will have to audition if they want to host the U.S. version of the TV show.

But whether or not Ozzy's wife and Walsh make the cut across the pond, they are expected back when the British version comes back next season on ITV1, the Daily Mirror reported Friday.

Talks were under way with Fox to broadcast the hit TV talent show in the United States in 2006.

The show will broadcast the finale of its second season Saturday as finalists Steve Brookstein and G4 compete for a $1.9 million contract with host Simon Cowell's recording company.

British bookmakers give Brookstein a slight edge in the competition.
