The Guys sure caused the ice rink to steam up as they performed at the Kristi Yamaguchi Friends and Family ice (and rock) show presented by Bayer Diabetes Care. The show, which was filmed on October 12, featured live music presented by Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato, and Jordan Pruitt and also starred world famous ice champions Viktor Petrenko, Nancy Kerrigan, and Kristi Yamaguchi (natch.) The family-friendly show also included skaters’ children to much cute effect.
I recorded this, so I will admit here that I did much non-Jonas fast forwarding so I don’t have too much to say about any non-Jonas related ice skating except for this: I love Viktor Petrenko (I even got to see him perform at a live show once!). The doll routine was a little odd, but he pulled it off somehow, and his performance with is daughter Victoria was beyond sweet – and adept. All of the routines with the kids seemed cute, but I kept thinking to myself if I were a kid and I was sitting in a chair on the ice and my mom was skating around me I would probably cry. But that’s just me.
The Guys played 4 songs: “Love Bug”, “ALBL”, “On The Line” (with Demi), and “Burnin’ Up”. Each performance was beyond awesome, well filmed and edited. The Guys looked fabulous (as always) and they looked like they were having a great time.
We are also treated to some bonus Jonas in the form of videos before “ALBL” and “On The Line.” In the first Nick talks about his mission of raising awareness for Juvenile Diabetes (a cause very close to his heart, as we know) and his new dogtag created by Bayer (different from his D-Collection dogtags). We also hear from fans who have been inspired by his message. The second (far more weep inducing) piece features Mama and Papa J recounting the challenge of Nick’s diagnosis and their partnership with Bayer.
See it all after the jump…
