Next week, the group will launch a special week-long takeover of the show which will run from Monday March 4-Thursday March 7 on CBS. They will join Corden on Monday for a chat, telling the full story behind their reunion. Throughout the week, they will take part in sketches, songs and various show segments, including “Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts,” a brand new “Carpool Karaoke,” plus the world premiere musical performance of their new single, “Sucker.”
According to the announcement, the group has sold more than 17 million albums and racked up more than 1 billion streams worldwide. The three have enjoyed successful solo careers since they last worked together six years ago, with Joe forming the group DNCE.
La femme de Nick, Priyanka Chopra Jonas , a appuyé l’annonce excitante du groupe sur Instagram. «Et oui, ils sont de retour… et puis-je dire… plus chaud que jamais», a-t-elle légendé sur une photo de l’œuvre. «Tellement fier de la famille #Sucker #JonasBrothers #MidnightET.”
Multiple sources confirmed the siblings’ comeback plans to Us earlier this month, and The Sun reported that the trio had recently traveled to London to discuss new music and a possible documentary project.
“After enjoying solo music success and taking time to work on passion projects, they feel that now is the right time to get back together,” a source told the newspaper.
Nick fueled the reunion rumors around the same time, liking multiple tweets about the potential of a Jonas Brothers comeback. “11 years ago I became a fan of the Jonas Brothers but I never had the chance to see them live,” one tweet read. “If a reunion is really gonna happen I will be the happiest man on earth.”
Some eagle-eyed fans suspected the Jonas Brothers revival a month earlier, when the group’s original Instagram page was reactivated. At the time, Nick was quick to debunk the rumors. “I mean, it is not happening right now,” the 26-year-old told W magazine. “Never say never. I think that there is some great things happening in all of our lives individually still, and we are all focusing on that at the moment.”
“Great things” seems like an understatement. In the years since the band’s breakup, Kevin, 31, welcomed daughter Alena, 5, and Valentina, 2, with wife Danielle Jonas; Joe, 29, got engaged to Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner; and Nick got married to Quantico alum Priyanka Chopra.
