The Jonas Brothers returned to their old stomping grounds to film a segment for MTV's Video Music Awards.
New Jersey natives Nick, Kevin, and Joe Jonas performed their single "Sucker" at The Stone Pony bar on Sunday before taking to a stage on the boardwalk in Asbury Park to record a segment for the awards show.
The segment will air during the VMAs, which will take place at the Prudential Center in Newark, for the first time ever, on Monday at 8 p.m.
The brothers gave a small free concert after the segment was filmed to the thousands who had gathered there, too. According to the Asbury Park Press, there were around 8,000 in the crowd.
I got to see a mini Jonas Brothers concert while at Asbury Park yesterday! I honestly didn't even know they had gotten back together until then... pic.twitter.com/eSNQx5iLB1— samcakes (@nelsonsamd) August 26, 2019
