The Jonas Brothers performed their Number One single “Sucker” at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas alongside songs from their solo careers. It was the trio’s first award show slot in over a decade.
They launched their medley in the middle of the audience at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, with Nick Jonas alone delivering 2014’s “Jealous” from his eponymous sophomore solo album. Brother Joe Jonas joined in, and they segued into “Cake By the Ocean” by DNCE, Joe Jonas’ dance-pop group. The brothers worked their way down the aisle towards the main stage as dancers grooved behind them. Their brother Kevin Jonas was waiting for them as he launched into a riff from the Jonas Brothers’ single “Sucker.” It culminated in their fiery group delivery, backed by equally explosive pyrotechnics.
“Sucker” is the group’s first new song in six years; they parted ways in 2013 following a “deep rift” in the band along with a desire to pursue solo endeavors. They released four albums during their initial run, three of which were released via the Disney-owned Hollywood Records. As part of the Disney brand, they also starred in their own TV show (Jonas L.A.) and two made-for-television Disney Original films: Camp Rock and Camp Rock 2.
The JoBros will be the musical guest on the May 11th episode of Saturday Night Live, just a few weeks before releasing their fifth LP Happiness Begins. In August, they will embark on a North American tour featuring support from Bebe Rexha and Jordan McGraw.
