The Jonas Brothers (Nick, Kevin, and Joe Jonas), who are Disney celebrities, can hardly be a name you are unfamiliar with. And given that we’re talking Disney Channel days, it’s likely that you’ve been a fan since long before their band reformed. Their band originally broke up in 2013 due to a “rift,” and the brothers each went on to work on solo projects.

They talked about what happened in greater detail in their 2019 documentary, Chasing Happiness. Nick Jonas could no longer do it because he felt like he was “fighting against something that’s not working.” However, when he told his brothers about it, they thought it was because their 30-year-old brother wanted to perform alone. 

Now, ten years after their initial split, they are now able to talk openly about what it was like growing up in a band with their siblings, and how they handled jealousy. Most importantly, how it felt for them when they competed for the same roles.

When the brothers were asked about constantly being compared to each other on the Armchair Expert podcast, Nick Jonas started out by saying, “We always say we want someone with the last name Jonas to win.”

Joe Jonas Was ‘So Jealous’ When Nick Jonas Landed The Voice

Although Nick Jonas has a solo hit with the song title, Jealous, it is actually Joe Jonas, who is admitting to feeling ‘jealous’ because of the gig that his sibling received.

The Jonas Brothers, a pop band made up of Joe, Nick, and Kevin Jonas, were guests on an episode of the Armchair Expert podcast that was released on Monday. The brothers spoke with hosts, Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell about times when they’ve each felt jealous of each other’s accomplishments.

Joe Jonas confessed that he “cried” out of jealousy when he learned that his younger brother (Nick Jonas) had been chosen as a coach for NBC’s The Voice for season 18. He recalled:

“It was at the most picturesque setting — it was at the Fleetwood Mac show at [Madison Square Garden] — and as they’re playing ‘Landslide,’ I found out that he was going to be a judge on The Voice, and I was so jealous I cried my eyes out. I’m super happy for him, but I’m also bummed because I want that f**king gig!”

Then, Kevin Jonas brought up the fact that Joe Jonas had previously worked as a judge on The Voice Australia for one season in 2018. “So he was like, ‘I did my time there — I should do it here.’”

“I just enjoyed the job, so I was like, what the f*ck?” as Joe Jonas himself put it. “But he crushed it and, you know, it was great.”

While both of his brothers were enjoying musical success apart from The Jonas Brothers, Kevin Jonas, on the other hand, recalled feeling a similar sense of exclusion at that time.

“I was definitely like, ‘I am so happy that it’s happening for one of us, but I wish it was the three of us.’”

But The Jonas Brothers Remain On The Same Team

After being replaced by Ariana Grande, Nick Jonas continued to serve as The Voice coach for Seasons 18 and 20 of the singing competition series. Regardless of whether there is sibling rivalry, the trio made sure to emphasize that they are all still on the same team. Moreover, their main objective is to have someone “with the last name Jonas win.”

The Love Again actor admitted that although they were “competitive in sports and other things,” they ultimately supported each other before their auditions when it came to their careers.

In fact, Nick and Joe Jonas revealed that they had both attended an audition for a part in the upcoming movie version of the successful Broadway musical, Wicked.  To which Joe Jonas agreed, saying:

Yeah, we said, ‘Go in there and kill it cause it’s gotta be one of us. It has to be one of us.’ That being said, never got that call …”

The film, Wicked, which is directed by Jon M. Chu, is set to release in 2024.
