Roxie leaves the stage after her failed audition, and Velma is waiting in the wings.
She tells Roxie she's actually good.
The two rivals argue, but Velma has an idea.
"One jazz killer is nothing these days, but two…"
Roxie says it'll never work because she hates Velma.
But Velma says show business is a business where that doesn't matter at all.
Fast forward a bit, and here they are: a duo with their name in lights. Huge lights—so this is Roxie's fantasy.
The women on stage wear lush white fur coats and sing "Nowadays" as a duet.
They take off the coats, revealing jazzy silver dresses.
The music kicks up the tempo and the ladies do a synchronized dance routine complete with props: a white top hat, and then a white tommy gun, which they use to pretend to shoot out the lights, spelling their names.
The crowd goes wild, throwing roses onto the stage!
Velma and Roxie thank the crowd. "Believe us! We could not have done it without you!"
