Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato Honored; Press Thrilled

The Jonas Brothers came to the press tour to hawk their new Disney Channel TV series, "Jonas," and were asked "How do you feel about the honor" of performing the night before Barack Obama's inauguration.

"First of all, it's absolutely an honor to be able to perform," Nick Jonas replied.

This is in marked contrast to Disney Channel star Demi Lovato, who said it was a "huge honor" to be part of Monday's Kids' Inaugural concert, which will be carried on the Disney Channel. And, she added, she's "ridiculously nervous" because "it's not just another president -- it's Obama." Lovato reports she's going to sing "La-La Land" and "Get Back." She came to the press tour to plug her Disney Channel series "Sonny with a Chance."

Nick Jonas, on the other hand, did not report being "ridiculously nervous" and instead revealed "I've always talked about a future in the White House one day, so to be able to go back should be fun." A couple critics laughed.

"But it really is an honor, and what we're doing is all for the children, the families of the military. And I mean, we couldn't have been more thrilled than to have been asked to do that event specifically," he added for good measure.

The Jonas brothers will be singing "Burnin' Up" because they know Sasha and Malia Obama "are fans" of that song. They'll also sing "Lovebug" and "Year 3000."
