Nick Jonas SNL


Nick Jonas performed “Close” on this week’s “SNL” with Tove Lo. The song is the first single off his upcoming album Last Year Was Complicated. See the video below of Nick Jonas’s performance of “Close” on “Saturday Night Live.”

This marks the second time Nick Jonas has been the musical guest on “Saturday Night Live,” but it’s his first time performing solo. In 2009, he performed as part of the Jonas Brothers when Alec Baldwin was the show’s host. To date, Nick Jonas is the only of the singing siblings to be the musical guest on his own.

In the video for “Close,” Jonas and Tove Lo are sitting in chairs across from each other inside an empty warehouse, and as they sing the lyrics about how difficult it is to open up and get close to another person, a force keeps pulling their chairs farther apart. But as that force also tears away their clothes, leaving them in just their underwear and metaphorically more vulnerable, they are finally able to touch. To date, “Close” has reached number 27 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and number 17 on its Mainstream Top 40 chart.

Check out the video below of Nick Jonas’s performance of “Close” on “SNL.”
