Looking good out there!

So…still no definitive word on when we will next get to bask in the musical vibery of the Jonas boys et al, collectively or separately (can you believe “Who I Am” has been out for almost 2 months?  Where did the time go?) And the same goes for Bulldozer (we’re waiting! so patiently!) but this past week was a fairly busy one on an official level, anyway…

Joe & Demi surprised us (or at least me?) with an unexpected turn on the high profile (if not always hospitable) American Idol soundstage to perform their Friends for Change duet single “Make a Wave”. It was a polarizing choice for many fans, but they did an admirable job which received the usual fair balance of adoration & praise to criticism & disdain, from all the usual camps.  Joe redeemed himself at least a bit, in some eyes, for his less than stellar Idol judging stint, especially with the post-performance stage banter, and Joe & Demi continue to blur the lines & fuel plenty of chatter over their public/private pairing with a post-show visit to Ryan Seacrest (see below the chop).

The KCAs followed the typical awards show arc of a slow build to an ultimately anticlimactic result. The main benefit for Jonas fans was a new set of red orange carpet shots since – in contrast to their last visit to the KCA stage and their pretty adorable hosting duties at the Teen Choice Awards, what a difference a year makes! – they never touched the stage, neither to perform nor to collect a blimp in either of their nominated categories. (They were passed over as Favorite Musical Group in favor of the Black Eyes Peas, and Nick & Joe losing Favorite TV Actor to Dylan Sprouse.)  This all had a bit of a bizarro world tone to it, for anysuperfan who watched, but such is Nickelodeon, & kids, circa 2010. But I think Jonas fans and Jonases alike can easily take this “crushing defeat” with grace…right? 😉

Off the tube, we continue to be treated to pretty steady Twitter updates from Nick, Joe & Bulldozer. John Taylor celebrated his 28th birthday (Happy Happy, JT!).  John also gave confirmation that the suspected Papa Jonas Twitter is the real deal (and there’s some pretty sweet stuff in there). While Kevin remains….mysterious in that venue (love you anyway, Kevin!), is it just me or have Nick’s tweets been a little warmer, sweeter and less vague in the past few days?  I know I’ve enjoyed them.

All of this said, the biggest news of the week has to be saved for last.

You already know about it, I am sure. Like all good champions of their field, The Grog Blog has re-emerged from premature retirement. We have all experienced or heard of the power of JB bassist Greg Garbowsky’s blog in the past, and now the real deal is at hand again!!  If you haven’t yet, make sure to go back and read all of the old, now-revived posts (and videos!) before settling in for the future of Grog. And this is for you, Garbo:

After the jump, you’ll find a few videos from the weeks’ activities (Idol & KCA related).  What do you think of all these new developments?!

So tonight, we had what was clearly the “Joe-Centric” episode in the thematic arc of JONAS.  It would also seem that this episode must have been filmed early on, and not just because we had a training session on the Stellavator.

Find out why after the jump!

Over the past couple of days we have been treated to two new previews of JONAS. One is from E! News Now, and the other from Disney Channel. They are very different.

The Disney Channel sneak peek follows the established pattern (antics clip, music clip, antics clip) and highlights a new song in this the fourth (and final?) preview before the premiere next week. The clip features the (infamous?) “Pizza Girl Song” culminating in an over the top goofy music video staring mini Jonai, killer pepperoni, a giant pizza girl, and the pizza oven of certain death.

The E! News Now clip is comprised of scenes from the “Wrong Song” episode, and features lots of meaty dialogue. This is the most complete picture we have of how the dialogue will flow (so far).

Did these clips make you clap? Cringe?

Follow me over the jump to watch the clips, get my take, and learn some techniques to make it all they way through JONAS (cringe pillows anyone?)

Another JONAS sneak peek! Yahooo!

We get to see more acting, and a bit of how the show will flow. We learn that their favorite back-up singer likes to swim in swamps (for some reason), the name Malcolm Meckle causes more than just a bit of stress, and all three Guys have a knack for physical humor.

I like it. I like it a lot.

Check it after the jump!

One Calendar Month, Revelers.
As of 8:00pm tonight, 30 days exactly remain until the World Premiere of the guys’ new television series, JONAS. I don’t know how you all feel about it, but as May 2, 2009, draws near I find that I am BESIDE MYSELF WITH EXCITEMENT!

If you, like me, are counting the days, hours and minutes until the show begins, I have something that may help with the waiting. I refer to the JONAS page on the Disney Channel website. The PR team at Disney is really ramping up the content in these final days until the show begins. There is lots to see there.
I’ll hit some highlights after the jump!
