The Blues Brothers Show is a live show attraction located at Universal Studios Florida.

The show debuted at the Florida park in March 1991 in the New York area. The show is based on the 1980 film The Blues Brothers, and features the title characters of Jake and Elwood performing classic Rock & Soul songs from the film. The current Orlando iteration of the show includes songs on a rotating show schedule. Five shows are performed daily and the songs include; Everybody Needs Somebody, Flip Flop Fly, Gimme Some Lovin', Hey Bartender, Rubber Biscuit, Rawhide, Sweet Home Chicago, Jailhouse Rock, Think, Respect, Shake a Tailfeather, Soul Man, and Shout.

During Universal Orlando's annual holiday events, the show is re-vamped with the Blues Brothers performing Christmas season songs. Foam machines are also built temporarily near the show to make the appearance of false snow. The songs for the holiday show include; All I Want for Christmas Is You, Santa Claus Rock (a version of Jailhouse Rock with new lyrics), Run Run Rudolph, Blue Christmas, Snow Man (a version of Soul Man with different lyrics), and Santa Claus Is Coming to Town.
