Oscar winner Jamie Foxx almost missed his own New Year's Eve party in Miami, Florida after a bird crashed through the window of his private jet.

The RAY star's Los Angeles take-off was stalled for hours while a second jet was prepared.

Foxx did, however, manage to make it to the poolside party at the Delano hotel on time. There, he performed tracks from his new US number one album UNPREDICTABLE with pals like Snoop Dogg and Ludacris. Billy Joel and Lindsay Lohan were among the celebrity guests as the $500 (GBP277.80)-a-head bash.
