Kay's most recognizable headgear is his mirrored "feather headdress" seen on the cover of [[High Times: Singles 1992–2006]].
=== TV performances ===
Kay appeared in an episode of the [[BBC]] series [[The Naked Chef]] alongside chef [[Jamie Oliver]]. He has also performed on the series [[Strictly Come Dancing]] singing [[Canned Heat (song)|]]. He also appeared four times in the [[BBC]] car show [[Top Gear (2002 TV series)|]]. The first appearance was in Series 1 episode 2, where he set a lap time of 1:48.1 for the show's "Star in a reasonably priced car", becoming the leading highscorer for the rest of the current and most of the next series. His second appearance was in Series 3 episode 4, where he drove his Lamborghini Miura with [[Richard Hammond]] as passenger. The third appearance was in Series 11 episode 6, where he came in to beat the top time held by [[Simon Cowell]]. He succeeded with a lap time of 1:45.8. Jay Kay won Top Gear's " Award" for the best dance after learning his time on the [[Top Gear test track]] and the fastest lap time in 2008.
The day before Jamiroquai performed their new single, [[White Knuckle Ride]], on [[The X Factor (UK)|]] on 31 October 2010, Kay was quoted by [[The Sun (United Kingdom)|]] as saying of the show's judges [[Cheryl Cole]] and [[Dannii Minogue]]: "What are they going to tell me about fucking music? ... When have you ever done anything? You're useless. The pair of you. I mean you look great and I'd like to fucking shag you but that's all." During his performance on the show, the pair talked continuously and refused to applaud at the end. Notably, neither of the other two judges stood up either.ref
