We can all agree that Carpool Karaoke is the best. Every episode is full of joy, but one of the more recent ones featuring Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas was definitely more awkward. Lovato called Jonas out for his dating life, and Jonas… well, he just didn’t know any of the words, which is a very important part of Carpool Karaoke.
So while Jonas was out promoting his newest album Last Year Was Complicated, he got a few questions about why he didn’t know any of Lovato’s lyrics. He finally came clean on Elvis Duran’s Morning Show and blamed the heat for why he wasn’t singing along.
The singer explained, “It’s so hot in the car! No one knows this… I’ll give you the whole scoop,” he explained. “Basically, because they’re recording sound, they can’t have the A.C. on, and at that point in the year, which was like a month and a half ago, it’s really hot in L.A. So for some reason I decided to wear this jacket with another thing on top of it, this whole thing, and I’m just sweating in the car, and Demi keeps looking back at me like, ‘What’s the matter with you?'”
It’s unclear about what the heat had to do with memorizing lyrics, but we’ll just take his word for it.
Despite the heat, Jonas had a great time doing the show. He said, “It is one of the most fun shows I’ve done ever and James is the best. It’s great to see people you admire, that you like their music or whatever, up there making a fool of themselves and having fun. He says before you start shooting too, ‘Don’t try to sing funny, really go for it! Act like you’re playing the Garden.’ He’s all about it!”
It’ll be exciting to see if James Corden will bring Jonas back on for a redemption round of Carpool Karaoke. Of course, it’ll have to be during the winter so he can really perform.
