Lets remember that the Jonas Brothers are only the latest incarnation of a pop-culture phoenix: the adorable, moral band of singing siblings. Like the Osmonds and Hanson before them, the Jonases will be your only loves for years, but the only one youll remember is the cutest or most talented. In a bold change of formula, the most charming Jonas (OMG Joe!) isnt the first to branch out with a solo project: This time its milquetoast lil Nicky with Nick Jonas and the Administration. Nick may be short on charisma, but he sure aint short on nerve: The project is purportedly inspired by Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band. Its no secret that his pet project will be granted easier success than most. After all, Nick only has his diabetes to deal with; Donny Osmond had those teeth.
