The people over at Funny or Die are at it again, this time with Grammy-nominated artist Jewel. The concept? Send Jewel to a local karaoke bar disguised as a mere mortal and have her sing some of her own songs. They fitted her with a wig, prosthetic nose, and, naturally, a bigger butt. Pretending to be a frumpy businesswoman named Karen, Jewel takes the stage and proceeds to totally dumbfounds the audience with her singing abilities. They have no idea she’s the real Jewel. (I wouldn’t have known either. Let’s all applaud the power of a little makeup.)
After wowing the crowd, Jewel changes out of her disguise and comes back to sing as the real Jewel, and some people still don’t realize that she was actually Karen from the earlier performance. Watch the video after the jump.
What do you think? Would you have been fooled? And what artist would you want to perform undercover karaoke?
