Yes, they were different. Also, please never ever mention the J Boys in the same sentence with the great Beatles again.
What was so different? The girls screamed at the BEATLES because they thought they were cute. Do you think they were paying attention to the lyrics at first?

Leave the fans of the Jonas' alone, if they were your daughters and sons or grandkids would you rather them listening to Rap or Heavy Metal.

You all are just too star struck to think the Jonas Brothers read and post comments to this rag. I fear for the future of this country if this is how the youngsters think.

They are part of the Disney marketing machine. They can take any no talent and make him or her a superstar. Hilary Duff can't act or sing. Her idea of acting is that little squeak she does, yet Lizzie McGuire was a big hit. Dylan and Cole Sprouse can't act, yet they have their own popular show. All those teeneybopper little girls are taken in by the marketing hype and not by true talent.
not often we agree , but you got it

Umm, and I'd just like to say that 1. I am not a teenybopper. Just because I'm a teen doesn't mean I like them for the "teenybopper reasons". I actually like their music, lyrics are very important to me (they can make or break a song for me) and I actually care about the different dynamics of music and instrumentation. And 2. they actually sound the same in concert as they do on the album. I'm not saying they lip sync, because I would have been able to tell the difference, trust me. From the acoustics, you could *tell* that it was them singing and, guess what!?!?! They actually do sing themselves, without all the special effects added in by the studio. Yeah, I know, hard to accept, but it's true. And yes, I could hear them, because I went to a concert by them from before they sold out arenas and you couldn't hear the music because of the screaming.
Wow. I agree with you totally on this comment. on both comments actually. i just hate that critics and people who don't even listen to these men on a regular basis criticize them...when in actuality there are tons and millions of girls ranging in ages from five to twenty five that love them. i have been to their concert and yes they are similar to the track and yah nick may be a little nasally. YOU aren't out there singing your heart out for months at a time are you??? Nope dnt think so. So please don't criticize inspiration.=]

I'm not out there singing because I know I can't sing. As far as inspiration, the few lines I was able to hear sounded like they came from other songs. I will commend the boys for their wholesome shows and lives, but that still doesn't compensate for lack of talent.

No question that the Jonas Brothers are a wholesome act. Its about time someone is especially with all the Hollywood douchebags getting so much press for their ridiculous behavior. I was just commenting on JB's lack of singing talent. Sure the kids loved the show, but the music wasn't that great and the screaming by the little teenyboppers was totally unnecessary. What does it accomplish beside assaulting their neighbor's ears?
ok, so you dont like there singing, why do u have to say it. like obvs the girls are screaming because they want to hear it and see them, they are talented, and they are good role models. but why are u even commenting ?

Because I was at the concert and I am allowed to provide my opinion. Since I bought the tickets and the t-shirts for my kids, I have every right to comment. Its my money helping to pay for the show. My idea of a show is hearing the performers, not the screaming audience. I didn't pay to hear them.

And yet you have been here since at least 2011. I know this will get put back where it belongs. Just wondering how long you and your other sock have been here.

Since June 11, huh? How about your "sister" in crime who lives near Tavares?
