Joe & Nick Jonas Team Up for Surprise ‘Cake By the Ocean’ Performance at Cannes Film Festival Gala: Watch

Fans got double the amount of Jonas they were expecting at the amfAR Cannes Film Festival Gala on Thursday (May 23). Midway through his previously scheduled set at the event, Nick Jonas asked the esteemed crowd to welcome a special guest: older brother Joe Jonas, who joined him for a performance of DNCE’s “Cake by the Ocean.”

In a clip from the concert, the Jonas Brothers bandmates walk side-by-side down the stage’s catwalk, Nick playing guitar as Joe passionately sings lead vocals. The latter’s band with Jack Lawless and JinJoo Lee reached No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 with the funk-pop hit in 2015.

Moments before taking the stage with his brother, Joe enjoyed Nick’s set in the audience with Diplo. Later, the “Where Are U Now” DJ posted a video on Instagram of the moment the “Jealous” singer said, “Joe, where you at?,” prompting the elder Jonas to grab a microphone from Diplo’s hand and join in.

Both brothers looked dapper in fancy off-white suits, Joe wearing a black ribbon around his collar and Nick opting for a more traditional bowtie.

The concert comes amid their ongoing Jonas Brothers tour with oldest sibling Kevin. Earlier this month, however, the trio was forced to postpone

a handful of their Mexico shows due to Nick’s health issues.

“Hi guys. I have come down with the nasty strain of influenza-A that’s been going around, and I’m not able to sing at the moment,” he wrote in a statement at the time. “We always want to be able to give you guys the best show and I’m just not able to do that for these shows in Mexico at this time.”

The global tour, which will last through mid-October, supports the Jo Bros’ latest record, The Album, which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 in May last year. In July, they released a single with K-pop boy band TOMORROW X TOGETHER titled “Do It Like That,” which they followed up in November with “Strong Enough” featuring Bailey Zimmerman.
