  Eurovision vs Ozzfest
Updated 23 May 2002, 19.56
Ozzy and Jessica
Heavy rock or euro pop? It's the choice on Saturday night as two big musical dates clash head on.

In the black corner, there's Ozzy Osbourne's modestly named Ozzfest and in the pink corner is the Eurovision Song Contest.

Morwenna Gordon helps you make up your mind:
