Worst move ever.
If you play guitar, please don't waste your time in The Pit, and please instead educate yourself in the Musician Talk forum, where you can be missing out on valuable info.

go, spend hours listening to jazz, sing along alot.
like really hours listening+singing along a day. then pick a tune you like sing it, transcribe or learn a few solos and then go in and hope for the best. read up/take some lessons in scatting

Why would you sign up for something you can't do/have never even heard?

Just sayin....

There is alot of jazz that is awkward to sing if you have no experience it. I am also in school for singing. If you have experience with neither then I would go with classical. Most of the Jazz I have sang has alot of weird chromatic movements. If you are already a good singer you should be able to adapt well, but then take in consideration that most of it is in a swing rhythm which is a bit harder to count at first. I think Classical singing would be the easier choice, just find a nice solo piece and make sure you can sing it well.
