And, while the show – akin to FOX’s ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ – is not set to premiere until Spring 2017,  Lopez took to Instagram today to give fans their first look at what they should expect when it arrives.

As we recounted here, R&B bad boy Chris Brown’s 2016 was a crazy year thanks to a number of highly publicized altercations, alleged assaults, and the like.  Now, barely a week into the new year, it appears the Grammy winner is set to have 2017 follow suit.

His ongoing beef with rapper Soulja Boy has been a rollercoaster to say the least, one many thought had come to a halt when the ‘Crank That’ hitmaker cranked out an apology last week.  Well…that was then.

With a celebrity boxing match scheduled between the two (Floyd Mayweather training Soulja and Mike Tyson in talks to train Brown), the ‘Run It’ singer reportedly ran to the gym to let off some steam on the basketball court when an altercation allegedly took place between him and its manager.  Needless to say, it didn’t end well for Breezy:

Watch Episode One On TGJ!

vivica-fox-lifetime-black-magic

Vivica A. Fox hit the promo trail hard this week in support of her ‘Magic Mike’-inspired reality show which launched on Lifetime this week.

 kim-burrell-radio-show-bmi

The L’s just keep getting handed to ‘Victory’ singer Kim Burrell.

The embattled gospel singer, whose anti-LGBT sermon from last week landed her in hot water with the community and its supporters, is continuing to see endorsements snatched from her.  After learning her appearance on ‘Ellen’ had been cancelled, the revered songstress learned her radio and television programming had been snatched from their respective points of air.

As if that wasn’t enough, yesterday she was greeted with news from BMI that she’d been uninvited from an awards ceremony honoring songwriters.

Alicia Keys, Chris Brown, Rihanna, Kanye West, & More Make Our “Faves” List

collage-albums-released-in-2007

Following a year that gifted pop music lovers game and/or career-changing albums like Justin Timberlake‘s ‘FutureSex/LoveSounds,’ Christina Aguilera‘s ‘Back To Basics,’ Beyonce‘s ‘BDay,’ Amy Winehouse‘s ‘Back To  Black,’ Ciara‘s ‘The Evolution,’ and Fergie‘s ‘The Dutchess,’ 2007 had some big shoes to fill.

For many of the artists who stood to the challenge (see:  Britney Spears, Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige, Kanye West, Jay Z, etc.) the results may not have matched the commercial response of their previous efforts (or collectively those of the big named releases the year prior), but critically the class of 2007 wielded what many consider some of their (if not their) best work(s) to date.

As we kick off 2017, let’s flashback to 2007 to ode 10 game and/or career-changing albums that turned 10 this year.  Your gateway to feeling “old” awaits below:
