‘SNL’ Host Nick Jonas Assures Brother They’re Still A Band, Then Debuts His Own ‘Spaceman’

Singer Nick Jonas pulled double duty as “Saturday Night Live’s” host and musical guest — and reassured his nervous brother Kevin that, yes, they’re still a band. 

“I’m honestly so excited to be here and support you,” said Kevin, who was in the audience during his bro’s monologue. “And also, I got to ask: Are we good? Because I see you’re doing a lot of solo stuff. Are we still a band?”

“Of course,” Nick replied before later performing two singles from his solo album: “Spaceman” and “This Is Heaven.”

“Are you sure? Because I just bought a house,” Kevin asked again.

The band broke up in 2013, thanks to Nick. Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas eventually got back together in 2019, and soon released their fifth album, “Happiness Begins.” Nick’s solo album, “Spaceman,” is due out March 12.

Jonas has been the musical guest on the program (sometimes with his brothers) four times. This was his first time hosting.  

Jonas added music to the monologue, leading Kate McKinnon, Kenan Thompson, Cecily Strong and Beck Bennett to sing “Drink With Me,” a twist on the nostalgic song of camaraderie from “Le Miserables.” Jonas starred as Marius in the “Les Mis” concert cast in London in 2011 for the 25th anniversary of the play.
