Joe Jonas Admits He Was “So Jealous” When Brother Nick Landed ‘The Voice’ Gig: “I Cried My Eyes Out”


Nick Jonas has a solo hit called “Jealous” but it’s his older brother Joe Jonas who admits he feels this way because of a recent gig his sibling got.

Joe, Nick and Kevin Jonas, who form the band Jonas Brothers, were guests on the Armchair Expert podcast for an episode released on Monday. Speaking with hosts Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell, the stars discussed times when they were individually jealous of each other’s successes, with Joe admitting he cried with envy when he learned Nick had been chosen to coach NBC’s The voice for season 18, airing 2020. (Nick returned as coach for season 20.)

“It was in the most picturesque setting – it was at the Fleetwood Mac show in (Madison Square Garden) – and as they played ‘Landslide’ I found out he was going to be a judge on The voice, and I was so jealous I couldn’t believe my eyes,” Joe recalled. “I’m super happy for him, but I’m also bummed because I want that damn performance!”

Kevin then pointed out that Joe had previously served as a judge on the Australian version of The voice for one season in 2018. “So he thought, ‘I spent my time there – I should do it here,'” Kevin reasoned.

As Joe himself explained, “I just liked doing it, so I was like, what the fuck? But he crushed it and, you know, it was great.

Kevin, for his part, recalled feeling similarly left out at a time when his brothers were both enjoying musical success away from the Jonas Brothers. “I was really like, ‘I’m so glad it’s happening for one of us, but I wish there were three of us,'” he said.

In addition, Nick and Joe shared that they had both auditioned for roles in director Jon M. Chu’s upcoming film adaptation of the smash Broadway musical. Bad. “We said, ‘Go in and kill it, because it must be one of us,'” Joe recalled how the pair pumped each other up. Sadly, neither ended up in the unspecified role.
