Jump
Jumpp
Album: Glee: The Music, Volume 2
Glee: The Music, The Complete Season One
Released: December 2, 2009
By: Van Halen
Sung by: New Directions
Solos: Artie, Finn, Mercedes, and Rachel
Place: Mattress Land
Episode: Mattress

Jump by Van Halen is featured in Mattress, the twelfth episode of Season One. It is sung by the New Directions, with Artie, Finn, Mercedes, and Rachel singing solos.

The song is sung while they film a commercial for the store Mattress Land that Rachel gets them cast in. It features the Glee kids jumping on multiple mattresses as well as singing, rolling, and flipping.

This later becomes a huge setback for New Directions on their way to Sectionals because Sue sees the commercial and tells Figgins about it. No glee club can compete if they have been paid for their activity, and as the kids got paid in mattresses, they shouldn't be allowed compete because they have lost their amateur status. They give all the mattresses back, except for the one that Mr. Schue slept on (because of his break up with his wife Terri). The kids are still allowed to compete, but they are forced to compete without Mr. Schue who, by sleeping on one of the mattresses, accepted the "payment" for doing the commercial. Emma took them to sectionals in his place.

Trivia

  • This is the first time Artie is seen out of his wheelchair. It occurs while Matt and Santana are jumping for him. However, he does appear throughout the song in his wheelchair holding up a sign that says "Jump."
  • Chris Colfer was accidentally kicked in the groin by Dianna Agron while rolling on a mattress and had also injured his neck while rehearsing the song.
  • The mattresses are actually trampolines. Zach Woodlee, Glee's choreographer, tried to make the performance on real mattresses, but it did not work.
  • Zach Woodlee said a lot of the choreography was just seeing what the cast members can do and just throwing that into the number.
  • Cory Monteith said his favorite part about this number was his scream at the opening of the song.
  • Jenna Ushkowitz, Dianna Agron, Mark Salling and Chris Colfer recorded the backing vocals.
