MTV will give viewers a glimpse into the holiday season at the home of Ozzy Osbourne and his family with "The Osbourne Family Christmas Special," airing Dec. 11 on the cable network. Promising to take "holiday specials to a bizarre new level," the program was taped at the family home in Beverly Hills, Calif., the staging ground for MTV's successful reality show, "The Osbournes."

A wide range of celebrity guests joined in on the festivities, including Jessica Simpson, who duets with Ozzy on "Winter Wonderland," and newlyweds Dave Navarro and Carmen Electra, who are shown baking holiday cookies. Former "The Man Show" host Adam Corolla teams with Jack Osbourne to whip up cranberry sauce, while Kelly Osbourne serenades the guests with "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas."

The show-stopper will be group reading of "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" featuring matriarch Sharon Osbourne, OutKast's Big Boi, 'N Sync's JC Chasez, Eddie Griffin, Tracy Morgan, Anthony Anderson, Eva Mendes and Electra, to be followed by "a climactic caroling sing along."

As previously reported, Ozzy has rescheduled a European tour originally postponed while he underwent treatment for Parkinson's Disease-like tremors. The shows begin Jan. 15 in Oberhausen, Germany.
