NFL Draft goes Pop: Jonas Brothers bring entertainment and excitement to the stage
While some fans may have been surprised to see the Jonas Brothers at the NFL Draft, it was clear that their presence added some entertainment to the event.
The 2023 NFL Draft took an unexpected turn when the Jonas Brothers, the Grammy-nominated trio, made an appearance on the ABC broadcast Thursday night. Fans on social media were quick to question the reason behind their presence at the event, but it was no secret that the band was in town as they had announced their appearance on the ABC primetime telecast during an interview on “Good Morning America” earlier that week.
“We can’t wait to celebrate the NFL Draft in Kansas City. See you there,” the Jonas brothers said in a 33-second video clip on “Good Morning America.
The Jonas Brothers, who have been touring ahead of the release of their sixth studio album, “The Album,” joined the ESPN “College GameDay” crew for an interview, where they talked about their love for football and their anticipation for the draft. The band also shared their unreleased song “Celebrate” during the show.
Despite some fans finding the combination of the “GameDay” crew and the Jonas Brothers a “weird combo,” it was clear that the band was there to add some excitement to the event. The New Jersey natives revealed that they were Giants fans and were eagerly waiting to see who New York would select with the No. 25 overall pick. To their delight, the Giants traded up one spot and selected Maryland cornerback Deonte Banks.
The Jonas Brothers' appearance at the NFL Draft was just one part of their busy schedule as they prepare for the release of their album and their upcoming world tour, which will kick off in August with back-to-back shows at Yankee Stadium.
While some fans may have been surprised to see the Jonas Brothers at the NFL Draft, it was clear that their presence added some entertainment to the event. The band's appearance at the draft shows that the NFL is trying to reach a wider audience and appeal to a younger demographic. It's not uncommon for big events like the NFL Draft to feature celebrities, and the Jonas Brothers are no exception.
It is well-known that the Jonas Brothers, who hail from New Jersey, are avid sports enthusiasts, particularly lifelong fans of the New York Yankees. In fact, their love for sports has even led to high-profile performances, such as their appearance during the nationally televised halftime show of the Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Giants game on Thanksgiving Day last year. Their presence brought some excitement and energy to the event, and it's likely that the NFL will continue to feature celebrities in future drafts.
