10 Moments From Happiness Continues That Will Make Jonas Brothers Fans Smile
The Jonas Brothers are back with a new Amazon documentary, Happiness Continues, and we couldn't be more excited. The concert film, which dropped on Thursday night, gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at their sold-out Happiness Begins tour. Not only does it include performances of "Burnin' Up," "Sucker," and "Year 3000," but we also get some personal glimpses of the brothers' bond with each other and their respective wives. One minute you'll be dancing and singing along to "Only Human," and the next you'll be quietly weeping as Joe talks about singing "Hesitate" for Sophie Turner every night. If you haven't tuned into the doc yet (seriously, what are you waiting for?), here are just a few of the best moments.
When You Get to Relive the Magic of the Opening Number
If you didn't see the Jonas Brothers on tour, you definitely missed out. While all of their performances are electric, their performance of "Rollercoaster" was definitely one of the highlights. Watching them descend from the ceiling as fireworks go off is truly a rock-star moment and instantly makes me feel like an excited teenager all over again.
When Sophie Turner Dances Along to "Cool"
We all know Joe included a special lyric for wife Sophie Turner in the Jonas Brothers' hit "Cool," but one of the best moments of the doc is watching her reaction to it during the concert. As Joe sings "sittin' there, winnin' like it's Game of Thrones," the camera does a closeup of Turner proudly pointing at herself before dancing along.
When They Gush About the Support They've Received From Fans
One of the best moments of the doc is when the Jonas Brothers reflect on how incredible their fans have been during this new chapter of their careers. Like Joe mentions, their songs have literally been the soundtrack to their fans' lives, and they don't take it for granted. Nick also adds that as they've grown up and matured over the years, so have their fans. Instead of dealing with obnoxious teens screaming and wanting photos (like at the height of their Disney Channel days), their fans are actually super supportive and respectful whenever they meet them.
When They Talk About Reconnecting as Brothers
While Chasing Happiness shows how Kevin, Joe, and Nick rebuilt their broken relationship as brothers, Happiness Continues shows how far they've come since. In addition to treating each other as equals, they also acknowledge that each of them brings something special to the group. Nick brings structure, Kevin has the ability to connect, and Joe brings an element of fun and playfulness. As Nick points out, without all of those pieces, they wouldn't be the Jonas Brothers we know and love.
When Joe Talks About Performing "Hesitate" For Sophie Turner
During the doc, Joe talks about how the Jonas Brothers song "Hesitate" was basically his vows for Sophie before they got married. "For me, it takes me to a whole different universe," he says about performing the song live. "I'm seeing her walk down the aisle again every time I close my eyes." Could these two be any cuter?
When They Tease Their New Song "Five More Minutes"
At one point in the doc, we see Nick record a few vocals in the studio. However, this isn't a song from their Happiness Begins album, it's a brand-new track. In fact, they actually gave a sneak peek of the song, titled "Five More Minutes," when they performed at the Grammys. Does this mean we're getting the full track soon? Fingers crossed!
When They Get the Old Band Back Together
While the doc shows performances from New York, Mexico City, Vancouver, and more, there is also some footage from a small show they did in Chicago. Not only was it a venue they played at 12 years prior, but they even got their old band back together for the event. Yep, John Taylor and Greg Garbowsky reunited with the brothers for one night only as they played deep cuts like "Shelf" and "BB Good." As an OG Jonas Brothers fan, that moment definitely took me way back.
When Kevin Talks About How Fatherhood Helped Him Find His Purpose
One of the sweetest moments of the Chasing Happiness documentary is Kevin reflecting on becoming a dad, and it only gets sweeter in their new film. After feeling lost following the Jonas Brothers' breakup, Kevin says, he really found his purpose through fatherhood. He adds that the tour has been extra special for him personally, because he gets to share it with his two daughters, Alena and Valentina.
When They Close Out the Show by Playing "Sucker"
After talking about staying true to themselves during this new phase of their careers, it's only fitting that the performance of "Sucker" — the first song they released when they reunited last year — is clips from their Happiness Begins tour and the small concert they played in Chicago. It doesn't matter how far the Jonas Brothers have come, they'll always remember where they came from.
When They Talk About How They Want to Be Remembered
The end of the doc shows Kevin, Joe, and Nick backstage after the opening night of their tour. As the camera pans to the three of them sharing an embrace, Joe talks about how he hopes their reunion helps other families mend their own broken relationships. "[I hope that] when it's all said and done, that we meant something to people and they felt connected to us and that we made them proud," Nick says at the end of the doc.
