The Jonas Brothers have scored their first Grammy nomination in ten years, earning a nod for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their comeback single, “Sucker.” The members of the group took to Twitter to reveal their surprise and delight at the honor.
Kevin Jonas posted a video to his Twitter account of the family and their friends finding out that they were being recognized for their work.
The musical group is up against some tough competition in their category.
The Jonas Brothers will square off against Ariana Grande & Social House’s “Boyfriend,” Lil Nas X feat. Billy Ray Cyrus’ “Old Town Road,” Post Malone & Swae Lee’s “Sunflower,” and Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello, for “Señorita.”
The last time The Jonas Brothers were nominated for a Grammy Award, they lost to Adele in the category of Best New Artist. Others nominated in that category at the time were Duffy, Lady Antebellum, and Jazmine Sullivan.
2019 has been a watershed year for the family band, who reunited after a six-year hiatus to create new music for their album Happiness Begins. They departed on a world tour in support of that album that has lasted throughout the better part of 2019.

The Jonas Brothers have evolved from a Disney-backed teen pop band who starred in their own Disney Channel show Jonas and films like Camp Rock and Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam into a more mature, thoughtful group of men who now create music that reflects their move into adulthood.
All of the brothers are now married — Joe to actress Sophie Turner, Nick to actress Priyanka Chopra, and Kevin to Danielle Jonas, with whom he shares two daughters, Alena and Valentina.
These loving relationships are reflected in the band’s current music and tour, which is a family affair where fans can usually see the three women in attendance at their shows. The Jonas wives were also featured in the video for “Sucker” as well.
Other big Grammy nominees this year alongside The Jonas Brothers are Lizzo with eight nods, Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X with six nominations each, and Ariana Grande, H.E.R., and Eilish’s brother and musical collaborator Finneas O’Connell, who scored five nominations each, reported Variety.
Perhaps the biggest category of the night, Album of the Year, is filled with blockbuster nominees including Bon Iver’s “I, I,” Lana Del Rey’s “Norman F***ing Rockwell,” Billie Eilish’s “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”, Ariana Grande’s “Thank U, Next,” H.E.R.’s “I Used To Know Her,” Lil Nas X’s “7,” Lizzo’s “Cuz I Love You” and Vampire Weekend’s “Father Of The Bride,” per Variety.
The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards will air live from the Staples Center on Sunday, January 26, 2020, at 8 p.m. EST, and will be hosted by Alicia Keys.
