Hear John Stamos Sing Sweet Transvestite!

| Filed under: John StamosGlee

Big mistake, FOX!

This sounds INCREDIBLE!

We mentioned before that John Stamos was Ryan Murphy's original choice to play Dr. Frank N. Furter in the upcoming The Rocky Horror Glee Show! The network vetoed the choice, but before they could, John recorded a demo of Sweet Transvestite.

And it just leaked! And we have it here for you! Yes!

Check out the video (above) to hear Uncle Jesse KILL the song!

Such a waste!

    WOW! He sounds fantastic!!!!



  2. 2

    I am so disappointed with the whole Dr. Frank N Furter ordeal. That is really gonna put a damper on my enjoyment of the episode.



  3. 3

    not using John Stamos for this part is Glees biggest mistake ever.
    funny that they can show girl on girl action but sexy john stamos in tights is too much!?



  4. 4

    that was John Stamos??? holy shit - EXCELLENT!! why they said no to him is beyond me -



  5. 5

    holy crap this is awesome



  6. 6

    hummm, it IS good.. sucks that he didn't get the part…



  7. 7

    To many guest apperances make the show more like a talent show for hollywood.



  8. 8

    that does not sound like Jesse, it sounds like Tim. The original.



  9. 9

    He sounds great !!! Wish they would have picked him for the role.
    Perez looooove the new nicer you!!!!

    How come I cannot see any of the comments posted?



  11. 11

    Oh. My. God. ♥



  12. 12

    Doesn't sound anything like John Stamos singing that song.



  13. 13

    I need to ACTUALLY see john singing this; I'm highly suspicious it's not him singing!



  14. 14

    Sorry but this sounds exactly like the guy from the B52's dont ya think????



  15. 15

    I was sooooo mad when i heard Mercedes was Frankenfurter, and i listend to her version of sweet transvestite it sounded horrible, She is a freakin girl , i don't get it . Tim Curry basically talks throughout the song and he still sounds great because of his amazing voice.John Stamos should have been Frankenfurter, i would of loved to see him dressed in black lingerie.They have ruined that part,but i love Kurt as Riff Raff, and Quinn as Columbia, their version of Time Warp is awesome, i can't stop listening to it.



  16. 16

    FOX sux…that would have been awesome! I don't watch Glee but I would tune in for that.



  17. 17

    That's not John Stamos. It's by Spit Like This.

  19. 19

    Incredible!



  20. 20

    AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Holy cow I cant wait til he actually gets to sing o nthe show!



  21. 21

    Can't get better than that. Good as Tim Curry!



  22. 22

    Surprise! Not bad!



  23. 23

    Did you…LISTEN to the song? I know you're being nicer now, but you don't need to blow smoke…this is terrible. TERRIBLE. What the fuck is going on with his weird inflections and pronunciations? BAD.



  24. 24

    This is NOT John Stamos! its a band called Spit Like This, doing a cover



  25. 25

    Really doesn't sound like Stamos too me.



  26. 26

    i am in love with glee. but this is the worst mistake ever. if you are going to put on a rocky themed show you better go all out, and john stamos would have rocked the shit out of Frank. mercedes is great, but this would've been incredible.



  27. 27

    Why is this a big mistake. They will get the same ratings with or without him and it will be just has enjoyable to see someone else play the part anyway. Who really cares anyway. You over think this shit big time.



  28. 28

    Wow he sounds great!!!



  29. 29

    @14 you nailed it!

    He sounds just like Tim Curry; that was amazing!



  30. 30

    The arrangement SUCKS ! But I would rather have this over what they are about to do



  31. 31

    That sounds good. Really, really, really GOOD!
    Why would anyone object to John Stamos?
    .
    Dude should do Broadway



  32. 32

    The Inflections and pitches were weird, Ive heard this version before its not John Stamos as stated before… I understand they were trying to make this song their own but… I do better at my local Karaoke bar.



  33. 33

    They should have let him play Dr. Frank N. Furter.



  34. 34

    This sounds nothing like John stamos. This leaked a few weeks ago, and is one of glee's in studio demo artists.



  35. 35

    Wow. . .that is awful. My ears have been raped.



  36. 36

    I couldn't even get through the entire song….it's TERRIBLE. It makes a mockery of the original. I'm glad they cut it out this would have made me change the channel.



  37. 37

    I'm reading some of the comments and as a Rocky Horror FANATIC I'm personally insulted by the fact that you think this sounds ANYTHING like the original! THIS IS TRASH. His weird voice that he's putting on and the wierd pronunciations is terrible. THIS SUCKS!!



  38. 38

    OMG! This is AMAZINGGGGGGGG! How could FOX say no?! BIG MISTAKE! Well, if there is any truth to Ryan Murphy doing a re-make of the film, maybe John Stamos will be cast as Frank-n-Furter in that? I hope, hope, hope, that'd happen! He's just killing this! AMAZING!!



  39. 39

    omg he would have been soooooo perfect :-(



  40. 40

    Big Mistake is right!!!
    John would have been a VERY HOT Frank N. Furter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    They should do a remake with him in the role!
    I love Tim Curry but would love to see John in fishnets=HOT!



  41. 41

    Not John Stamos, no way.



  42. 42

    VIDEO?

    sorry to disappoint, but that is a FAKE FAKE FAKE demo of someone other the John Stamos or any member of the GLEE cast. Ours is MUCH better!



  44. 44

    im confused… this was refused because??? like for real in the last episode they had girl on girl action… but this was too much? maybe they were afraid we wouldnt be able to stand seeing him in tights?? who knows… but this was a mistake on their part because this would be a reason for everyone to tune in… glee fan or not. everyone knows uncle jesse… and who hasnt seen rocky horror? smh o well… better luck next time.



  45. 45

    Ummm, NO ONE will EVER beat Tim Curry. Whoever this is, and I doubt it's John Stamos, so does NOT sound like the original. What are you guys smoking that would make anyone think this even compares to Tim?!? The accent is awful, the vocals are mediocre at best, and I imagine the real John would sounds loads better anyway.



  46. 46

    Re: blahblah12 – you hit the nail on the head!



  47. 47

    OMG he sounds so much better than the bloody Mercedes version that is crap the idiots should have kept him as Frank hes brilliant



  48. 48

    ok, so can I start off by saying the first ten or whatever comments are completely B.S. Tim Curry is the only one who can sing that song and get away with it. john stamos is a horrible excuse for this song, and if you're a true RHPS fan you would agree. Glee did a poor job on this episode. Sorry, but you can't replace or re-due RHPS.

    p.s. this is written by a drunk bitch, and if a drunk bitch can give you an amazing reason as to why my explanation sucks, it's because you guys have no intellect.

    Fox should have known about Stamos's long and fruitful musical association with the Beach Boys. They don't hire just anybody. See wiki.
    This is a GREAT version of the tune.
    Just. Wow.
    Lol at him putting it out now.
    Atta boy, John. : )



  50. 50

    you're wrong, it's not glee at all it is SPIT LIKE THIS



  51. 51

    Oh my gosh! This is amazing! I'm dissappointed in the Frank-N-Furter casting, although Amber Riley is definately amazing, I like this much much better.



  52. 52

    This isn't even John Stamos singing. It's Spit Like This. Your site is HORRIBLE now. Perez you are a fugly reject, go away.



  53. 53

    Wow he sounds great bad move by network!



  54. 54

    I'm pretty sure this is by Spit Like This… not John Stamos…



  55. 55

    Excellent! Stamos NAILED it!



  56. 56

    After reading some of the other comments, there is something I want to say. I'm a huge fan of Rocky Horror myself and nothing really can't compare to Tim Curry as Frank N Furter. BUT John Stamos did a hell of a job! It was fantastic! People need to understand that they changed the words and tone of the songs, well because it's Glee and it's more family oriented. I do agree, last week was girl on girl but yet they don't want to see him in fishnets. For those who watch Glee know that they aren't 100% when it comes to singing well known songs, they have to change it. Cut him some slack Uncle Jesse would be an AMAZING Frank N Furter. No offense against Amber Riley, but a guy needs this role.



  57. 57

    THIS IS THE BAND SPIT LIKE THIS! not whoever the hell that bloke your talking about is



  58. 58

    Yeah Im sure this IS SPiT LiKE THiS too.



  59. 59

    This is total BS. This was NOT done by John Stamos… Those vocals are Lord Zion, This is SPiT LiKE THiS with their cover of sweet transvestite. So NO he does not sound fantastic.. Z and the guys (and Lady) of SPiT LiKE THiS sound fantastic. *Facepalm*



  60. 60

    ?



  61. 61

    this is from one of the best bands ever called "spit like this" for everyone who liked it youtube them!!!!!!! their album is amazing!!!!
    sorry to dissapoint!!!! but at least you have become alert of a new band :)
    ENJOY!!!!
    xox



  62. 62

    Re: JadedGemy – as a Rocky fanatic myself I TOTALLY agree JadedGemy i was soooo confused reading the other comments i mean really have any of them people really even seen the movie cause i thought it was horrible!! i dont like how it was changed up i mean i get that ppl wanna make songs there own but come on its Rocky Horror you just DONT MESS WITH IT!! nothing about it sounded original!!



  63. 63

    HAVE ANY OF YOU PEOPLE EVER EVEN SEEN THE MOVIE!!!??? cause for you to say that this sounds good or sounds anything at all like Tim Curry is ridiculous!!! This was a horrible version of the song and there is nothing original about it at all!!!!!! I LOVE Glee and Rocky is my FAVE movie ever but after watching their version of Time Warp and having Mercedes as Frankenfurter I am very disappointed!! They should not be changing the arrangement at all Rocky Horror is a classic and should be performed with COMPLETE originality!! UUGGHH SO DISAPPOINTED!!



  64. 64

    Re: JadedGemy – thanks a lot because I was starting to lose my trust in mankind here. John stamos is hot, but this version just sucks royal hippogriyff. plus, it sounded more like Spit Like This anyway.



  65. 65

    This isn't John Stamos. one of the glee creaters tweeted on his official account that the only version they recorded was the one with Mercedes and anything else is fake. I happen to like her version the producers put they're own spin on the classic and I commend them for taking a chance and if people want to hear an exact replica of the original movie then they should just skip out on watching this weeks glee and go watch the original rhps with Tim Curry singing sweet tranvestite



  66. 66

    OMFG!!!! How could they NOT pick him! Not only is he hot as hell but damn! He can sing too!!! what a shame. I NEVER EVER watch glee.. But I love rocky horror and John wouldve made it PERFECT! oh well shame on u glee producers!!



  67. 67

    ok now I read its not john stamos! WTF perez get your news right your wasting my time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  68. 68

    Just one thing…. either is John Stamos or Spite like this… pics of them singing it or it didn't happen!!



  69. 69

    it is Spit Like This. they've done a press release. LOL!



  70. 70

    YUM YUM YUM



  71. 71

    aw man, can I buy this version instead? This is a million times better than Mercedes… ew. AND it has the proper words transexual instead of sensation. grrr!! ITUNES let us download this!!!



  72. 72

    This isn't Glee!
    This is SPiT LiKE THiS! An amazing band I've been following since I was just 13!
    Thanks for the publicity, Perez! :) xox



  73. 73

    amber is a fantastic singer and its ok to not look the part, but not sound it either is kind of unforgivable. the whole franknfurter scene was just an epic fail



  74. 74

    Wow, this article has been online for a week now and still nobody corrected it yet? Seriously? I guess that means whoever writes this doesn't give a s**t about our comments…

    The version of this song in the video is actually a cover by the UK band "SPIT LIKE THIS" and has NOTHING to do with John Stamos or glee. And yeah, this is available on iTunes, too.

    Also, in my humble opinion, the SPIT LIKE THIS cover of Sweet Transvestite is at least as good as the original version by Tim Curry if not even better in its own way. And what they did to this cool song on glee was absolutely horrible. Thumbs up if you agree.
