Geldof gate-crashes and James Brown and Joss Stone rip it up with Jonathan Ross
Friday 1 July on BBC ONE (repeated on BBC THREE on Sunday 3 July)


On the eve of Live 8,Bob Geldof gatecrashes Friday Night with Jonathan Ross to introduce an all-star line-up for the last show in the current run.


In a rare television interview, The Godfather of Soul James Brown joins Jonathan Ross to look back at his 50 year singing career; his friendship with Elvis - "We were very close: I wanted to wear tight pants but he was first"; his experience as a black artiste - "If someone called you a black, that was negative; I try to take the negative and make a positive. When I see a kid they're not black or white, I just see a kid."


He discusses his longevity as a performer - "I [still] do everything except the splits. I had a bad experience (prostate) - for a long time I was ill and never knew it. I dance fast, the little bit I knew I now do better I didn't think at my age (72) I'd still be respected"; and his forthcoming appearance at Live 8 in Edinburgh - "There's a lot of people who need our help. I'm begging you [to watch]: they need us."


Completing this final week's line-up is teen soul singing sensation Joss Stone, also performing at Live 8, who famously didn't know who Bob Geldof was. "I've no idea what to expect [at Live 8]. I wasn't around for Live Aid I didn't know who he was - they never let me live it down." And in an electrifying finale to the series, Stone joins Brown for an impromptu storming rendition of his classics - including Sex Machine and It's a Man's World - performed live in the studio.
