Okay, JoBro fans, we know you’ve been anxiously awaiting new music from Kevin Jonas, Joe Jonas and Nick Jonas, and while they promise us it’s on the horizon, unfortunately there’s nothing set in stone. But, to hold you over until the bros make their anticipated comeback, Joe Jonas is set to star on a brand-new CW show, The Next: Fame Is At Your Doorstep.
Joe called into Ryan Seacrest’s radio show this morning to discuss his new project, much to fans’ delight. In the new music competition show, which airs in August, Joe, along with fellow judges Nelly, Gloria Estefan and John Rich, will be mentoring four artists around the country in their quest to make it big. Not only will Joe be his contestants’ mentor, but he will be living in their houses for 72 hours in order to really get a feel for who they are as artists. Yep, that’s right, Joe Jonas could be living in your town very soon. Joe told Ryan:
“I’m gonna be spending time with their families [in order to] learn about them. Say they flip burgers, I’m gonna be flipping burgers.” Stars, they’re just like us.
Not to worry, Jonas fans who think Joe is delaying the recording-process. Little bro Nick tweeted his support shortly after Joe’s big announcement:
If Joe’s feeling a little nervous about taking on this new role, perhaps he could ask fellow popstar Kelly Clarkson who mentors contestants in another music show, Duets, for a little advice. Hm, the two shows seem pretty similar if you ask us.
What do you think about Joe’s announcement? Will you be tuning in? Should Joe continue to be on reality TV (The Choice airs on Wednesday), or should he stick to music?
