Kurt Elling on NPR’s “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!”
Just before the Grammy awards, Kurt was the celebrity guest on National Public Radio’s Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me! – The Oddly Informative News Quiz show. He played “Not My Job,” a three-question multiple-choice quiz. Laugh-out-loud hilarity ensues!
Listen to Kurt’s cover of Ke$ha’s “We R Who We R,” his answer to say “something in jazz,” and his scat-talking (which sounds suspiciously like Danish).
The game he’s invited to play is “Dude, First Thing You Need to Do, Get a Drum Machine.” His quiz questions are on other Grammy nominees — Bruno Mars, Adele, and Bon Iver.
So did he win the prize for the listener in Boca Raton, Florida? Listen to Kurt’s 10:05 “Not My Job” segment to find out! You can also read the transcript, but the spoken word is much funnier.
