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


Walter picks Josh to be his co-weatherman. 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 live TV. 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 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.
  • The boy band, 'At Last', guest stars on this episode. They would later appear on America's Got Talent.
  • 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 Belleview Choral Society stole the song he was going to perform during the show?
  • When Josh and Megan are talking and the camera is focused both on them and the door, there is only one dice on the table. The camera pans in to focus on Josh and Megan and out again to focus on Josh, Megan and the area where the door is, two dice appear on the same table.
  • The teacher said that the ice cream was for a PTA meeting tonight, but it could melt if it's being left out like that.
