‘SNL’ host Nick Jonas assures brother they’re still a band, then debuts his own ‘Spaceman’

Singer Nick Jonas did double duty as host and musical guest on “Saturday Night Live” and assured his nervous brother Kevin that, yes, they are still a band.

“Honestly, I’m very excited to be here and support them,” said Kevin, who was in the audience during his brother’s monologue. “And also, I have to ask: Are we okay? Because I see that you are doing a lot of solo things. Are we still a band?

“Of course,” Nick replied before 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 finally got back together in 2019 and soon released their fifth album, “Happiness Begins.” Nick’s solo album “Spaceman” will be out on March 12th.

Jonas has been the musical guest on the show (sometimes with his brothers) four times. This was his first time as a host.

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