The end of 2013 also brought to an end one of the most popular groups in music today. Yes, you're reading this right – the Jonas Brothers are no more.
Just before the kickoff of what should have been their latest tour, Nick, Joe and Kevin decided to slam on the brakes. It was October 3 when Nick conceded to his brothers he wasn't sure the band could continue as it was. The decision came after the trio admitted they had butted heads over everything from solo opportunities to music videos and other commercial ventures.
Have We Seen The End of The Jonas Brothers? (Updated 1/23/14)
On October 9 came official word that the guys – known for hits like "SOS," "Burnin' Up" and "Lovebug" – had officially canceled their 19-city fall trek. At the time, it was explained away by a rep as "a deep rift within the band… a big disagreement over their musical direction." Just like that, the Jonas Brothers were no more. And with the cancellation of the tour came news that the group's fifth album, "V," had been shelved (this after two poorly received singles, "Pom Poms" and "First Time.")
The Jonas Brothers confirmed (via a round of morning news show appearances) that the album would not be completed, but they are doing something for the fans. That means four unreleased songs from the project would be released, and the Jonas boys also chose to share 10 live tracks from their Summer 2013 tour.
For now, the Jonas Brothers are all excited to begin the next phases of their careers. Both Joe and Nick have talked about solo projects, while Kevin plans to work behind the scenes of the industry. Will they be back together some day? Never say never, but for now you've seen the last of the Jonas Brothers.
Jonas Brothers set to tackle new album (Updated December 26, 2012)
With striking good looks, designer duds and velvety smooth harmonies, the Jonas Brothers officially became the most popular teen group of the new millennium in very short order. Fueled by a music-filled childhood and later built on the back a Disney Channel television movie, the trio is four albums, one split and a reunion into livin' their dream.
Few are aware that the Jonas brothers' success hinged not on the tutelage of a musical family, nor on a quick rapport with screaming teen fans. Instead, the boys came together following Nick's early run as a Broadway performer. By the age of seven, he was sharing the stage with seasoned veterans and would appear in "A Christmas Carol," "Beauty and the Beast," "Annie Get Your Gun" and "Les Miserables." But when his brothers began writing songs for his debut album, they were signed as a group act instead.
Once known for contemporary Christian music like Nick's "Joy to the World (A Christmas Prayer)" and "Dear God", the group's full-length debut, "It's About Time," bowed in August 2006 to a very modest audience. However, the Jonas brothers were dropped by their label and would sign with the Disney-owned label Hollywood Records. They were off and running with an eponymous sophomore album, and appeared on various Disney Channel programs and movies.
Through coast-to-coast tours, two more albums, solo ventures and other projects, the Jonas Brothers announced a reunion via Twitter on March 6, 2012. Their first concert took place on October 11, 2012 at Radio City Music Hall, and was followed by a brief overseas tour through Russia, the Phillippines and Malaysia. An untitled fifth studio album will arrive in 2013.
