Jonas Brothers reveal that Kevin Jonas is NOT leaving the band to purse an older audience, as Star had reported. New JB blog: Hey everyone! It has been longer than we wanted since we wrote another update blog. This was a VERY busy few weeks but it has been wonderful.
In the last 2 weeks we: Performed TONIGHT on the AMAs (American Music Awards) and THANKS TO YOU won our first AMA. This meant so much to us because it was voted on by the FANS. That means you made it happen. We could not be more thankful. [Life recap, then talk breakup rumor at the end..]After the AMAs we had a special FREE concert for our fans at the
House of Blues on Sunset Blvd in LA. IT WAS AMAZING!!!! The entire show
was acoustic and we played some of our favorite songs. During the
concert some of our friends joined us onstage.
Some of the people
included Dan Akroyd (from the original Blues Brothers), Demi Lovato
(who sang an amazing version of John Mayer’s Daughters), Jordin Sparks
(who sang No Air and a killer version of Superstition), Honor Society,
Jess McCartney (who sang his hit song Leavin’) and Frankie J (who sang
When You Look Me In The Eyes IN SPANISH!). We were able to be the house
band for all of our friends. It was amazing.
The next day we did the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He is always so
great. We had decided to sing a new song at each event this week. It
was fun to change it up a bit. We did SHELF The next day we were on the Jimmy Kimmel Show and sang BB Good and Video Girl. The crowd was amazing!
After the show we flew all night and did some press and rehearsals for the Dallas Cowboys Game for Thanksgiving. On Thanksgiving we performed for the Dallas Cowboys Game with
hundreds of people and a huge stage. They really made it amazing. We
sang TONIGHT, LOVEBUG, and BURNIN’ UP with Big Rob. One of the
highlights of our career so far.
Then we flew all night again to be in New York City for Good
Morning America to discuss our new book, BURNING UP on tour with the
Jonas Brothers. It is always good to be there.
We went from GMA to a book signing in NYC that was CRAZY. There
were over 500 people there that had camped out on the streets for days
(including missing Thanksgiving) to meet us. It will never cease to
amaze us that people will camp out to see us. We really do have the
best fans in the world. Then we had the night off.
On Saturday we flew to Las Vegas for 2 shows at the MGM Grand. It
was so good to be back in front of our fans for shows. This is what
brings us the most joy. On Sunday we flew back to LA for a show at the Palladium. Once
again we heard that people had camped out and missed Thanksgiving to
see us. Can’t believe the commitment of our fans.
THIS WEDNESDAY was a special concert for the Nominations of the
GRAMMY AWARDS. We knew that John Mayer was performing so we really
wanted to go. We finished filming our TV show for the day and raced to
the awards so that we wouldn’t miss the concert. When we arrived they
rushed us to our seats then…
They announced the first award for Best New Artist. We completely
freaked out when they announced that we were one of the nominees. We
STILL can’t believe it. Our fans are amazing and have voted for us on a
lot of different awards but this is voted on by people inside the music
industry. We were completely shocked.
Then LL COOL J came over to
interview us. Not sure how we answered him because we were in shock
about the nomination and then we were in shock that we were talking to
LL COOL J. What a night! After the announcement we were moved to a
press room. During the night we met so many people that we have admired
including BB KING, SMOKEY ROBINSON, and finally we met JOHN MAYER. He
was so great to us.
Our heads are still spinning since the announcement. We are fans of ALL
the other artists that are nominated in our category. It really is an
honor. The crew from our crew from our TV series even threw us a party
the following day congratulating us on the nomination.
We are working hard every day on our new TV show JONAS and can’t wait
for you to see it. But it was exciting to get back out there and be in
front of our fans and friends again. We miss and love you so much.
Thanks for EVERYTHING!
JB Kevin, Joe and Nick
P.S. There is a rumor that one of us is leaving to group. Not true. We
love what we are doing and hope to do it together for a long time.
