Kitt began her career in 1943 and appeared in the 1945 original Broadway production of the musical Carib Song. In the early 1950s, she had six US Top 30 hits, including "Uska Dara" and "I Want to be Evil". Her other notable recordings include the UK Top 10 hit "Under the Bridges of Paris" (1954), "Just an Old Fashioned Girl" (1956) and "Where Is My Man" (1983). In 1968, her career in America suffered after she made anti-war statements at a White House luncheon. Ten years later, she made a successful return to Broadway in the 1978 original production of the musical Timbuktu!, for which she received the first of her two Tony Award nominations. Her second was for the 2000 original production of the musical The Wild Party.
She was introduced to a new generation through Disney's animated feature The Emperor's New Groove (2000), voicing the villainous Yzma. She reprised the role in the direct-to-video sequel Kronk's New Groove (2005), as well as The Emperor's New School (2006-08), an animated series based on the first film. Her work on the latter earned her two Emmy Awards. She posthumously won a third Emmy in 2010 for her guest performance on Wonder Pets.
