Dancer of the Week: Kevin Jonas’ Daughters Have Dance Party to Celebrate Jonas Brothers Reunion
Who: Alena and Valentina Jonas
Why we picked them: S.O.S! Have you heard the news? The Jonas Brothers are back together! The brotherly band dropped their first single in six years and we enthusiastically approve; and so do eldest brother Kevin’s daughters!
Last week, the news of a JoBros reunion took the Internet by storm, igniting nostalgia and excitement among fans who were hopeful ever since the @JonasBrothers Instagram account was reactivated early last year. But of all the celebratory posts on social media, our favorite was from a few of the Jonas’ themselves.
Five-year-old Alena and two-year-old Valentina were captured joyfully throwing their arms up and dancing around their living room to “Sucker,” the new jam released by their dad and famous uncles, Joe and Nick. Their joy is contagious and we can’t help but smile while watching it! Since the adorable clip was posted on Instagram, the video has over 628,000 likes and 1,700,000 views and counting.
The brothers weren’t initially planning on reuniting as a band. However, they got together to film a documentary for Amazon Studios about their childhood and rise to fame, and it was at that time that the trio had a revelation.
“We started to realize there was a magic that we felt like we were missing,” Nick confessed during the group’s full-week takeover on The Late Late Show with James Corden. “So the process was basically just, ‘Why don’t we give this another shot?’”
Cue us dancing around excitedly in the living room just like Alena and Valentina!
Fun fact: The girls aren’t the only family members excited about the song’s release! Franklin Jonas, their youngest brother, also posted a celebratory dance to Instagram.
