Pussycat Dolls - "Jai Ho" Music Video

Pussycat Dolls -

Pussycat Dolls have just premiered the video for their version of A.R. Rahman’s Oscar-winning song “Jai Ho!”

The Dolls shot the video for “Jai Ho (You Are My Destiny)” at an abandoned train station museum in snowy Vienna with director Thomas Kloss (Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus). Check it out below!

Honestly, this track is playing on my MP3 player 24/7! I saw them perform it on Wednesday at NY’s Nassau Coliseum prior to Britney Spears‘s Circus concert. It was the first time PCD performed it in front of a live audience. It was fi-yah!!!

    Awful. Is this their idea of trying to bring this song into mainstream music? They really shouldn’t because they are messing with a good song!

    contrary to what others think,i love this song. it was my first time hearing jai ho, and i have no doubt that PCD did it justice. stop hating folks cause u know everything nicole touches is hot! idk y yall trippin! the vid was amazing! but on the real tho, let melody sing some more! she has an amzing voice!

    the song from the film is much better and the video is really stupid. i like the original much better!!!

    ummmm Says:

    I actually kinda like her version…but does she have to be ****** in everything? I mean it would still be a cute song if her belly was covered up, and the backup dancers were not wearing thigh high boots….try selling the music and not the body for once

    YoYo Says:

    How ridiculous was that all the single shots were of Nicole S and we only saw the other members of PCD when they were dancing in groups. They should just call it Nicole S’s cover of Jai Ho. I’m not hating on her anything but I wouldn’t want to be a member of that group with all the attention focused on Nicole. I know she’s the lead singer and all but damn. How embarassing.

    LOL @ them “recreating” Indian scenes.
    And why is AR Rehman lip synching when it’s Sukhwinder’s voice being heard in the soing? hmm
    dumb video imo, i prefer the original, but there’s no harm being done i guess ( discounting the horrendous dance moves).

    desi_kudi Says:

    I prefer the original because I’m Indian and can follow the lyrics, so maybe the firangs will like this ;)
    BTW is Nicole dancing with just a sari blouse on and jeans , what a ho! :D

    fameseeker Says:

    It was nice at first to have the Indian culture be infiltrated within North America and Slumdog was an unbelievable way to have it happen but honestly, this is just getting ridiculous….I feel as though my culture is being pi.mped out to the world like a cheap ho.oker!!
    And its sad because this is simply just a trend…tomorrow it’ll be out the window and make way for another!! You can’t treat people’s cultures as a fashion trend…its insulting!

    Ginger Says:

    Hey, hey now… AR Rahman that wrote the original song approved and wanted PCD to do a remix of Jai Ho for the American audience… so don’t be hating on the PCD… AR Rahman already knows what he wanted!!

    PCD did a great job remaking this song! I love it! Good dance song!

    we Says:

    The indians in this thread worrying about PCD stealing THEIR music? Do you know how much Bollywood steals from Western (and Eastern) music? Get over youself and open your eyes. Idiots.

    Secondly, ” It was the first time PCD performed it in front of a live audience.” No. They opened for Aguilera a few years ago and perform live on various TV shows, award shows and smaller club gigs.

    Pop Says:

    I agree with WE.

    How did he ~sell out?~ He’s not an indie (no pun intended!) artist who sold out to the mainstream- he’s definition of commerical music. Get over yourselves.

    Also, about Indians being pimped? LOL Do you know how suggestive your music and movies are? The comments here are a joke.

    jilli Says:

    God this remix makes me mad! I love the original. And whats up with the Pussycat DollS if Nicole’s the only one who sings, she’s always in the front, she’s got her own screen time, and the camera is always on her! pointless. And stop with the over sexualizing things!

  57. 57
    Najera Says:

    The video & song are nice enough. More provocative & sultry than the original, but not unappealingly so. You get the idea. Wicked bodies aside, what is the blonde wearing to Nicole’s left? It’s off-putting.

    we :
    It distinctly reads that it was the first time PCD performed their live version of “Jai Ho.” Look at the quote you referenced & the second “it” which clearly refers to the new song. Your last remark aptly describes your comprehension skills, which could be honed before you resort to condescension. Also, there’s no need to attack & call people names; It just adds to the pointless fingerpointing.

    Kweenly Says:

    is this nicole feat. the ***** cat dollz and A.R. RAHMAN?… cos home girl is all i see in this vid .. while the other dolls are sort of blurred out. it would be NICE if the others were allowed to make an appearance .. and it is Jai -ho .. way to desecrate a wonderful song !

    theninj Says:

    trivializes an amazing song and movie. some things just can’t be covered. i like them, don’t get me wrong, but they should stick to their own music. they’re always better when they do.

    oh and she could at LEAST try not to look like a **** for once. again, it works for her other videos but comeon, have some class sometimes.

    Pinky Says:

    I don’t know what the problem is with everyone that comment on this VID……….IT’S AWSOME AND THE GIRLS DID A PRETTY GOOD JOB WITH THIS SONG……… so if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say nothing…. GREAT JOB GIRLS LOVE UR MUSIC ….

    Roy S. Says:

    Some of the comments here are so out of order. This is Jared’s site, and if he wants to promote a film, book, song, or anything else, it is his prerogative, and our US Constitution supports that. If you don’t like the song, or PCD, or this blog, go elsewhere. For every person that says they ruined the song, there is someone else that loves it. You can put me in the “loves it” category, and I’m not a PCD fan, but the song is so jubilant, and promotes and exemplifies the feel good nature of the film. AR Rahman asked the PCD to write and record an english language version to make the song more accessible to non hindi speaking people. I think both versions are incredibly effective, and neither detracts from the movie. (According to my Itunes I have listened to the song 31 times since I purchased the track – and I can’t wait for the remixes).

    Thanks for what you do Jared!

    marvin Says:

    Man you folks are tough on this site. I’ve heard both versions of the track and they are both good. I’m not Indian or a fan of the PCD but come on folks, this will help the dvd sales and it won’t hinder the next PCD cd sales either. You folks need to relax on this site sometimes.

    i was talking to a girl that went to the Britney Spears concert, and the ***** cat dolly came out, and yelled… ” are you ready for Britney Spears”?
    everyone then was yelling so loud!
    and then they said ” AND WHO HAS OUR ALBUMB”?!?
    … and then it was like you could hear a cricket chirping it was so quite!
    i think their crap. And why is Nichol wearing a ******* ***** dot?
    i really think that is some what offensive, comeing from someone whom is Pakistainian?
    … shes retarted.

    Rena Says:

    @ Leila #9
    I soo agree with you, every time I hear her say “jay” ho it annoys me soo much, personally for me it ruins the song. Plus Nicole Scerzhinger (can’t spell) can’t sing!!!

    Kurlystar Says:

    No difference with this vid than other bolly vids with bolly princesses wearing a lot less and dancing around in an even more provocative manner and leaving a lot less to the imagination.
