Jonas Brothers are returning for a “Saturday Night Live” performance!
After several years of thrilling the show’s audience in 2009 and later in 2019, the musical trio, alongside alum and host Molly Shannon, have been unveiled as the stars handling the stage next month. The beloved band, inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame in January, consists of brothers — Kevin, Joe, and Nick.
The Jonas Brothers Make “SNL” Comeback Four Years After Their Last Stint
“SNL” fans have begun preparing themselves for a show of a lifetime following NBC’s announcement that The Jonas Brothers would be returning to the stage on April 8. The trio would be joined by Shannon, who is no stranger to hosting the comedy sketch series after she exited it as a cast member in 2001.
The “A Good Person” actress made her hosting debut in 2007, and multiple cameo appearances followed, including one in April 2020, which she joined via Zoom for music producer Hal Willner’s tribute.
While fans count the days to Shannon and The Jonas Brothers’ return, they will be thrilled by “Abbott Elementary” star Quinta Brunson and musical guest Lil Yachty’s appearance on April 1.
Later on April 15, the stage will be run by Ana de Armas alongside musician Karol G — real name Carolina Giraldo Navarro. The big news was shared via the “SNL” social media pages, including Instagram, with the caption, “🔜🔜🔜.”
The excitement in the post’s comment section was palpable as one person gushed, “Crying joyful tears about Molly Shannon. My comedy queen idol since I was a kid!” A second fan wrote, “all female lineup we love to see it,” while many others anticipate Karol G’s performance.
As if that excitement was not enough, each brother took to Twitter to share their thoughts about the news, with Joe writing, “Bringing a couple songs from THE ALBUM to the @nbcsnl stage on April 8th!!”
“Headed back to @nbcsnl on April 8th with @jonasbrothers. Let’s get it!” Nick penned, while Kevin added, “So pumped to be back at @nbcsnl on April 8th!! Let’s go!!”
The “What A Man Gotta Do” hitmakers made history when they appeared on “SNL” for a performance and an acting cameo after a five-year breakup in 2019. The former Disney stars had reminded viewers of their talent in “Judge Court” – a parody sketch of syndicated court shows.
At the time, Joe had tweeted, “What a dream come true (again),” along with a backstage picture of him and his brothers donning matching red outfits. The tweet garnered nearly 28k likes, with many fans praising the band for their powerful rendition of their 2008 song, “Burnin’ Up.”
“Not even gonna lie, I just cried watching the Jonas Brothers sing “Burnin’ Up” on SNL,” one viewer tweeted of the iconic moment. A second person pointed out that Joe’s vocals on the song were “straight 🔥.”
Per E! News, Nick, Kevin, and Joe also performed “Sucker” and “Cool.”
The MTV Video Music Award Winners Are Gearing Up For Their Upcoming Concert
The Blast reported last month that the bandmates had a five-night concert at Marquis Theatre beginning on March 14. The trio named the event “Jonas Brothers On Broadway = 5 Albums 5 Nights,” referring to their intention to perform hits from a different album each night.
To that end, the “Camp Rock” actors explained that March 14 will feature hits from “Jonas Brothers,” March 15 – “A Little Bit Longer,” March 16 – “Lines, Vines and Trying Times,” March 17 – “Happiness Begins,” and March 18 – “The Album.” In the joint statement announcing the movement, the boys wrote:
“Your boys are back in town 🗽 We’re coming to Broadway and playing the Marquis Theatre March 14-18!! Each night will be focused on a different album and we’ll be playing all the hits. Believe us when we say you won’t want to miss these shows….”
Although fans were beyond excited about the five-night engagement, it seemed like a practice for their upcoming United States tour, which is slated to begin in August. The tour, which will focus heavily on “The Album” — their upcoming body of work, will have 60-70 dates.
The highly-anticipated album will officially be available in May and includes tracks like “Summer Baby” and “Miracle.” The “Jonas Brothers: Living the Dream and Jonas” recently released one song from the upcoming sixth studio album last month, “Wings,” in February.
