Stevie Wonder is as friendly and down-to-earth as any pop-music legend around, but performing with him at the 2009 Grammy Awards was intimidating for the Jonas Brothers.
“We were pretty nervous,” acknowledged Joe Jonas, 21, who performs in San Diego on Thursday (sans the iconic Wonder) with his siblings Nick, 17, and Kevin, 22, at Cricket Wireless Amphitheatre.
“We were definitely scared, but having the audience stand up because we were on stage with Stevie Wonder was pretty cool. We love his music, and we grew up on it. Our parents played his music from the time we were very young.” (Click here to see the video.)
Not everyone welcomed this unusual musical pairing on the Grammys, which was designed to draw younger viewers. Or, as Tom DeLonge of blink-182 quipped on the telecast: “Isn’t it great to see the Jonas Brothers and Stevie Wonder back together again?”
