The Guys were on the season premiere of Ellen today and they were their normal super charming, super sweet, and super rockin’ selves. The episode was filmed on September 3, 2008, so it is prior to the ridiculousness that was the VMAS.
The show began with a supercute intro with Ellen and Michelle Obama (Joe is left hangin’, though). They were also discussed during Michelle’s segment and Ellen showed some awesome footage of Malia mouthing the words “Jonas Brothers”. Classic.
The Guys came out, did a little DFM, and explained how they still strive to make their mother proud (which prompted some disturbing comment from Kevin about visions of them performing on stage in diapers). O-K. Ellen also bowled them over with a whole “you’re all dating, just admit it” thing which Joe and Nick handled very well. Kevin, not so much.
This is the second time Kevin has become defensive when he has been “told” that he is dating someone. I just have to say – Kevin, don’t take it wrong. All we (and by we I mean Ellen) were trying to say is that we love you, we want you to be happy, and if you ARE happy, then we are happy. We don’t need details. Just smile, chill and drink some water like your bros. But I get you -It is a rude question to ask anyone, but you are not anyone, and she did it more nicely than anyone so far.
After their chat they went outside and played three songs. Two (or most of two) were shown on the air – “Lovebug” and “Burnin’ Up.” The third was made available on Ellen’s website – “BB Good.” They hit all of them out of the park – I especially liked “BB Good!” So, Malia got her JoBro wish at last. She was beaming. Can you blame her?
Check out the interview and all performances after the jump!
I think we can all identify with the look on Malia’s face.
Burnin’ Up (most of it anyway)
