Jonas Brothers mix new hits with throwback 'Burnin' Up' on 'SNL'

Groups sings, appears in skit

NEW YORK - More than a decade after their debut on "Saturday Night Live," the Jonas Brothers returned armed with their new singles and ready to throwback to an oldie.

The band performed their comeback hit "Sucker," their first song together in six years, before diving into "Cool."

But halfway through the second song, they brought the nostalgia back by diving into fan favorite "Burnin' Up" from 2008.

Nick, Joe and Kevin also played themselves in a skit called "Judge Court," with Kate McKinnon, Emma Thompson and Aidy Bryant. The brothers sheepishly appeared in court for causing $5 million worth of damages to a vacation rental.

But they walked away with a lenient sentence: dinner with the judges.

"God, you're perfect," one of the judges said.

Earlier this month, the brothers announced a 40-date North American tour. They plan to release a new album, "Happiness Begins," on June 7.

The Jonas Brothers last appeared on "SNL" in 2009, when they performed "Video Girl" and "Tonight." The trio went separate ways in 2013, citing a "deep rift" and disagreement over the group's musical direction.

Nick pursued acting and solo music, which included his second studio album. His songs "Chains" and "Jealous" achieved Billboard success.

Meanwhile, Joe formed the pop band DNCE and sang lead. The band had a hit with "Cake by the Ocean," which reached No. 9 on the US Billboard Hot 100.

Kevin appeared on "The Celebrity Apprentice," founded a real estate company, and worked as CEO for influencer marketing group The Blu Market Company.

The brothers also experienced significant changes in their personal lives since they broke up: All three got married.

They brought their biggest fans, wives Priyanka Chopra, Sophie Turner and Danielle Jonas, to cheer them on at "SNL."

Backstage, the boys and their ladies ran through a human tunnel to celebrate.
