Can someone transcribe a German sentence from this song?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d31b9ziDJjo

It's actually a recording from some German TV programme. It's at 2:12

"Kevin Spacey und Jeff Goldblum im blitzlicht ???"

Note: Spacey and Goldblum both acted in the comedy "Speed-the-Plow" by David Mamet, at the "Old Vic" theater in London, in 2008.
This piece of info is probably useless, but maybe the excerpt refers to that.
The song is from 2011.

It's in English. It says "Kevin Spacey and Jeff Goldblum in blitz gift to get up"

Are you sure? It doesn't sound like English at all.

That's English. Besides, they are talking about Hollywood tacky things like Oscar. So it all fits in, Stefano. Regular smile

But what would " in blitz gift to get up" mean?

It means there's some subscription to some charity program and as a rule, they have some kind of lottery for the subscribers. The winner(s) get(s) a gift certificate (free tickets) for Spacey and Goldblum's performance. A blitz gift is a gift certificate. Or it may be a campaign right from Blitz Co. itself.

Personally I don't think it is in English (why would "und" be used instead of "and"?) but if it is German mixed with English it sounds like "Kevin Spacey und Jeff Goldblum in blitzkrieg get up".

"Und" sounds like "Unt" in German. I listened to it. It's "and". It's not about what they say. The sounds are all English, to the last one. "t" also sounds different in German and English.

Always depends on the dialect of the speaker.
