How does BBC1’s new choir show Pitch Battle actually work?


Bio: Born in 1989, Joe and his brothers first released an album in 2006 called It’s About Time. But it wasn’t about time for the Jonas Brothers as it actually flopped.

It was their second release in 2007 that brought them huge success, selling over two million copies in America.

They released a total of four studio albums, with Joe also bringing out his debut solo album Fastlife in 2011, but it didn’t garner him much commercial success.

Although it was announced in 2013 that the band would be coming back together to bring out a fifth studio album, just days before their tour was about to start they cancelled the whole shebang. In a statement they said there was a “deep rift within the band” over “creative differences”. Which must make Christmas with the family rather awkward.

The @iheartradio MMVAS are goin strong!!
