Over the Thanksgiving holiday, Abby and I watched the Jonas Brothers 3D Concert Experience DVD, which I gave her for Christmas last year. This is Nick, Joe and Kevin Jonas:They are rather entertaining, I must say. While their flips and tricks and random flailing are pretty cool, I sorely missed the tight choreography and dance moves that NSYNC offered. I guess the trade off is that the Jo Bros play instruments while onstage. Except for Joe, he can only play a tamborine...hence, no guitar in the picture above.
Meanwhile, about a decade ago, these cuties were making it big:
Here is the point of this comparative study. Abby and I are watching the DVD and the Jo Bros start singing Hello Beautiful. Suddenly they are rising into the air and end up each standing on a separate raised platform, high above the stage:
My initial reaction was not "That's cool. I wonder if they are scared up there." No. My reaction was "COPYCATS!!!" Behold NSYNC performing God Must Have Spent A Little More Time On You during the No Strings Attached tour:
They did it first! Please note that I had the No Strings Attached concert on VHS. That's right. I think it has sadly gone to the world of Lost In One of My Parents Last Three Moves. Very sad....not that I have a VCR to even play it if I still had it... At any rate, I do not condemn the Jonas Brothers for stealing NSYNC's raised platform idea. I rather appreciate the shout out to their predecessors.
