The Jonas Brothers Earned Their First Grammy Nomination Since 2009, and We're Losing Our Cool
The 2020 Grammy nominations prove once and for all that the Jonas Brothers are back and better than ever. On Wednesday, it was announced that the group of brothers were up for best pop duo/group performance for their smash hit single "Sucker."
The brothers reacted to their nomination by sharing a heartfelt post on Instagram. "On January 13, 2018 we were all in Mammoth having a boys weekend and ended up having some very honest conversations," the lengthy post began. "It started with an idea of doing a Vegas residency with no new music and eventually we got to a place where we were all okay with doing a documentary of some kind telling a story of the past. We weren't all the way there though. The road to get where we are today was not easy, it took a lot of healing and time to even be comfortable with doing something together. This isn't just a band, this is our family."
The statement continued, "There were some really tough moments that had to happen for us to get to this place but it's right where we are supposed to be. This has truly been our greatest year yet. We get to be back on stage together again, as brothers, where we belong and making music that we love and are proud of. We truly couldn't be happier . . . as artists, as friends, and as brothers. To think a year ago we hadn't even released music . . . This nomination means the world. Thank you to the best fans — we know how much this year and this comeback has meant to you guys too."
While the nomination is a huge achievement in itself, it also shows how far Kevin, Joe, and Nick have come over the years. The Jonas Brothers received their very first Grammy nomination over a decade ago when they were up for best new artist at the 2009 ceremony. Even though they lost out to Adele, they went on to have a prosperous career.
Following their 2013 split, the brothers announced they were getting the band back together earlier this year. Since then, they have released an Amazon documentary about their life, released their Happiness Begins album, and gone on tour. We definitely can't wait to see what they do next.
