Back on the road! The newly reunited Jonas Brothers joined James Corden for a fun-filled rendition of “Carpool Karaoke” on Thursday, March 7, capping off their weeklong takeover of The Late Late Show.
Nick Jonas prefaced the segment by telling Corden, 40, that it was “basically our first performance back” since the boy band’s 2013 breakup. “I gotta dust off the cobwebs. Here we go,” Kevin Jonas added.

However, the trio sounded better than ever as they launched into their 2008 hit “Burnin’ Up” followed by early fan favorite “Year 3000.” Between the songs, Nick, 26, explained how the group decided to reunite.
“Basically, about a year ago, we started talking about making a documentary together. That was how it started. Just to tell our story, you know, childhood into our career together,” he said. “And in that process, we did some very necessary healing ‘cause, you know, when things ended it wasn’t the best. Forced therapy on camera. And then in that, we started saying there was a magic when we were together that we would all love to feel again.”
The “Jealous” singer then admitted, “I broke the band up, but I got ‘em back together.”That said, Corden pointed out that the brothers must still have some “lingering doubts” after their rocky split, to which Joe Jonas responded, “I feel like we’ve got everything out there, but there’s things that we forget to talk about.”
To clear the air, the late-night host decided to put the Jonas Brothers to the ultimate test and hooked them up to a lie detector machine inside his SUV. And, oh, did they fail.
