Jamie Foxx Hosts ‘SNL,’ Performs ‘Birthday Song’ with 2 Chainz

Jamie Foxx and 2 Chainz

Jamie Foxx returned to his comedic roots, hosting “Saturday Night Live” for the second time. The star of Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained kicked off the show with his monologue (“How Black Is That?”), impersonating President Obama’s dance moves and sitting down at the piano for a musical number.

The Oscar winner, who turns 45 this week, told the audience what he wants for his birthday by singing the hook from 2 Chainz’ “Birthday Song.” It wasn’t long before the Grammy-nominated rapper made a surprise appearance to help him convey his birthday wish.

During other skits, Jamie played a Michigan State student who loves Japanese culture (“J-Pop: Christmas”), Madea and Alex Cross (“Tyler Perry’s Alex Cross 2 Madea: Special Ops”), and a former porn star (“Swarvoski Crystals”).

    Yeah, I saw theshow. Nothing funnier than the idea of killing all the white people, right? I was appalled by the show. It was nothing but Jamie Foxx doing the race thing. There was the one about killing white people (which got a few wild cheers from audience members!), then there was the one about how white people can’t dance. Let’s see Jamie do a little River Dance. Then there was the game show where white people acted scared of black Jamie, who was playing a black host calling them all bitches. Ever so funny. Can you imagine if the races had been reversed in these skits?

    The Crystals commercial was pretty funny, and so was the Tyler Perry skit. Too bad there was so much anti-white racism on the show.

    @Netgk, Absolutely, if whites were to say anything alittle bit offensive it would be all over the news not just comments on YouTube. How do we get to be outraged and they aren’t responsible for being racist! Seems that word only applies to the white race. We got to sop letting “them” get away with it time after racist time!

    @Netgk, You mean imagine what already is? Racism exist in the institutions not in a trivial skit. & the crowd cheers only because they know it’s no threat.

    @Dking, “The crowd” was largely silent in response to Jamie’s hilarious joke about killing white people. Watch the video. They knew it was hate speech. There were a few who cheered wildly. I can only guess which race they were.

    @Netgk, you do know that its almost impossible for black people to be racist right?? im mean the level of hatred and discrimination that blacks have endured in America alone is un-matched, im talking bottom of the barrel. a few JOKES from Jamie foxx is way more tolerable. i saw the show last night and it was funny.

    To “huh?”: That’s a really stooopid idea, that it’simpossible for any black person to be racist. So if a black person hates white people based soley on race, as some absolutely do, that’s OK? NO. That’s the very definition of racism. Hating slave owners is one thing. But hating white people is something else entirely. The white people you see today never owned slaves, nor do they want to.

    And by the way, black people captured and sold slaves to white traders, and black people OWNED slaves here in the US.

    The Madea Special Ops was a hilarious skit and I think it was the funniest one of the night. Jamie Foxx definitely brought some of the In Living Color hilarity to SNL. I was working late at DISH last night so I couldn’t see the show live. A while back, I set up my Hopper from DISH to automatically record the show so I can watch it the next morning. It is nice being able to have the entire season on my DVR with more than enough recording space left for the rest of my favorite shows. Jamie Foxx did great on the show, but I’m looking forward to seeing Martin Short host!

    These blog comments are why multicultural education is so important. If you can’t even get a Jamie Foxx joke, how are you going to understand someone much blacker than that?

    @BCS, I had a multi-cultural education, and it taught me not to “joke” about the joy of killing people based on their race.

    And by the way, I did “get” Foxx’s “joke.” But if he had been a white southerner and the movie had been about him being kidnapped by a black gang, and he got up there and joked about how great it was to be able to “kill all the black people,” blacks would probably be a little offended.

    i think the multicultural education comment means learning to understand that only white people can be racists. and that whites simply need to “understand” jamie foxx and others like him. that is the only problem. bring it all back to whites. whites can’t be offended in 2012 because slavery happened in the past. the end. in all seriousness, i think jamie foxx will thankfully learn the hard way that his worldview will be rejected. there are not enough whites who are willing to keep quiet and allow his outbursts. this anti-white sentiment is a trend. more whites will turn from neutral and quiet to vocal and offended by the anti white undercurrents. and when people realize it is OK to feel proud of being white and european…..there will be a backlash and people will vote with their dollars. people wont eat jamie foxx’s tired act up.

    It was racism and sexism. People like Jamie Foxx only make it more difficult for us to heal the wounds dividing us as a nation. And what is it with calling everyone, both male and female, “bitches”? It ain’t cool. I don’t care how long this word has been “in fashion.” It’s still disrespectful for women, and women shouldn’t be tolerating it. Considering the amount of violence with exes and husbands killing wives, girlfriends, and kids, we should be outraged with this current miysognist bent in our society. I usually like Saturday Night Live, but this was one, if not the worst episode, I’ve ever seen, and don’t tell me to lighten up. Racism is racism, as is sexism. We should be upset and fed up.
