I got this on an email forward:
Im in Dallas and hadn't heard anything about this special (Jaimie is a North Texas Native)

Subject: Jamie Foxx - Music Special Controversy on NBC
Please take the time to forward the below message to everyone in your
address book. NBC is not doing any marketing and publicity on Jamie's
Music Special on NBC because he stood his ground and wouldn't have any
white guests 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.
Jamie 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!
