The Project's Steve Price stuns with brutal Jonas Brothers joke

"I’d fill that band perfectly!"

Steve Price stunned his fellow panellists on The Project on Monday night when he made a brutal joke about the Jonas Brothers, who were appearing on the show later in the evening.

Waleed Aly referenced the band's upcoming interview, joking, "You like those beats, don’t you, our fourth Jonas Brother tonight, it’s Steve Price!"

"You are the bonus Jonas!" Sarah Harris exclaimed.

"Can you play an instrument?" Sam Taunton asked Steve, to which he replied, "No. Can I sing? No. Can I play an instrument? No. So I’d fill that band perfectly!"


"OK, alright, not bad!" Waleed said, quickly changing the topic.

Sam spoke to the brothers, who will be Down Under for their first Australian tour in March. The Project host asked how they feel about finally performing here, with Nick Jonas responding that Australia actually plays a "significant" role in their story as a band.

"I love it there, I'm excited to get back, it's been a little while," he told Sam. "It also has a really significant storyline in our story. When we got the band back together in 2018, we kind of did some of those tough conversations and talks about what this next chapter would be out in Sydney.

"So, it's going to be nice to get back, and plant our feet back on the ground and see our fans there."

"So, are you saying Australia saved the Jonas Brothers?" Sam questioned.

"It definitely helped!" Kevin Jonas responded.

The Jonas Brothers split

The Jonas Brothers split up in 2013, with the brothers deciding it was the best move for them at the time.

"To call it creative differences is almost too simple," Nick told CBS in 2019. "And I think a lot of people lost their appetite for what we were putting into the world. So, you know, we were putting up shows that weren’t selling. We were making music that I don’t think we were all super proud of, and it wasn’t connected."


It was Nick who told his brothers he thought they needed to go on "individual journeys".

"And I feared that, you know, they would never speak to me again," he added.

However, the band (and their fans) got a second chance and they released 'Sucker' in 2019.
