    The word on the street is that NBC is trying to sabotage this show because Foxx refused to have any white guest on it. There is no advertising push for the show, and it is running up against American idol. I'm also hearing conflicting reports on whether or not it will be shown at 8 or 9. Eitherway it will be shown tomorrow.

    :kiss1: Man Pan this is well overdue for this multi-talented brother!
    I have been following Jamie since living color and his first album which was the womderful back in 1994. Hell naw he don't want any white folks on the show.He was one of the biggest contributers to the Katrina hurricane racial diaster! The look on his face when he was in New Orleans you can tell he wanted to do a Kanye West comment!
    Thank you for posting this.I did not know anything about the show!:kiss1:

    Here's what I was emailed

    Subject: Jamie Foxx Music Special Controversy


    Let's support a brutha' who went out on a line for his people!

    NBC is not doing any marketing & publicity on Jamie's Music
    Special on NBC because he stood his ground and wouldn't have any white
    guest as they requested. To make it even worse he had two controversial
    guest stars, that do not fit the "NBC profile" on his show. Tune in to find
    out who they are. They are purposely putting his show up against the second week
    of American Idol in hopes that it will fail. This will give them the
    excuse to never give another black person a music special because "it
    doesn't work". Let's show them that it does work, and that we support each
    other. Tivo Idol, and watch Jamie. I saw the taping, it is a good show.

    J Foxx making history on NBC. This is the first time NBC has ever aired
    an entire young urban African American cast on a music special. We need to
    show support. This was not an easy sell for Jamie and he stood his ground
    to make it happen the way he saw fit.

    JAMIE FOXX MUSIC SPECIAL WILL BROADCAST WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 25TH @ 8:00PM
    PST on NBC. PLEASE MAKE IT A POINT WATCH! There will be surprise special guests.
