Type Cover Song
Artist From Victor/Victoria (Musical)
Episode Duets
Sung By Kurt Hummel

[edit] Origin

Le Jazz Hot was originally written for the musical Victor/Victoria. The production is about a woman named Victoria, who is forced to appear as a man. This song represents both sides of her - the female part and the male part.

[edit] Performance

For the performance, Kurt dressed in a half/half costume (appearing as both a male and female) in order to add to the essence of the song, and represent his true self as a homosexual. He sang it as a one-person duet, which surprised many people. This means that he took the role of two different voices and made them into one voice. With the help of background vocalists, Kurt did this for the episode Duets.

[edit] Lyrics

'Bout twenty years ago
Way down in New Orleans
A group of fellows found
A new kind of music
And they decided to call it...JAZZ
No other sound has
What this music has

Before they knew it
It was whizzin' round the world
The world was ready
For a blue kind of music
And now they play it
From Steamboat Springs to La Paz

Oh baby, won't you play me
Le Jazz Hot maybe
And don't ever let it end
I tell you, friend
It's really something to hear
I can't sit still
When there's that rhythm near me

Oh, so baby
Le Jazz Hot maybe
What's holding my soul together
Don't know whether it's morning or night
Only know it's sounding right
So come on in and play me
Le Jazz Hot baby
Cause I love my jazz....HOT

Before they knew it
It was whizzin round the world
The world was ready
For a blue kind of music
And now they play it
From Steamboat Springs to La Paz

When you play me
Le Jazz Hot baby
You're holding my soul together
Don't know whether it's morning or night
Only know it's sounding right
So come on in and play me
Le Jazz Hot baby
Cause I love... my jazz hot
Le Jazz Hot...
Le Jazz Hot
