Blues Brothers is the eighth episode of the second season of Drake & Josh. It aired on September 12, 2004.


Drake prepares for a talent show; Josh appeared on Walter's weather channel and discovers that he has stage fright, which causes him to twitch on TV live. The forecast was unfortunately viewed by many in San Diego which Josh had been teased by viewers. To remove this poor reputation due to this, Drake offers him to appear in his talent show audition and perform the song Soul Man. Helen ran the Belleview Talent Show at the Premiere.


Walter: Hey, what are you making?
Josh: Trail Mix. For the cave I'm gonna live in. Where no one can see me twitch in the darkness.


  • One of the guys who was arguing over the way Josh twitched is played by Jake Farrow, who played Gavin Mitchell in the next episode and several episodes after that.
  • When Drake is trying to cheer Josh up after him being picked on for his twitch, he turns on the TV and we see a clip from the 1980 movie The Blues Brothers.
  • The black suits, black hats and sunglasses that Drake and Josh are wearing in the talent show are very similar to what Jake and Elwood wore in The Blues Brothers.
  • Logan and Michael were seen watching this in the Zoey 101 episode "New Roomies."


  • It's somewhat improper for the school talent show to be held at The Premiere.
  • Shouldn't Drake have revealed to the producers of the talent show that the choral society stole the song he was gonna to perform during the show?
