Keeping Up With the Jonases

    To a generation of obsessed teens, the Jonas Brothers are the coolest thing since sliced bread -- or, well, the iPhone. Nick, Joe and Kevin have stormed the charts with two hit records, made beautiful music with Miley Cyrus, and charmed legions of swooning women -- including Miley, Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift.

    Solo Act

    The youngest Jonas paved the way for brotherly success: Nick began wowing theater crowds at the fresh young age of 6, nabbing prominent roles in the Broadway productions of 'Les Miserables' and 'Beauty and the Beast.' On the strength of 'Joy to the World (A Christmas Prayer),' a single he co-wrote with his dad and performed for a Broadway charity album in 2002, Nick scored a record deal and released a solo album in 2004.

    The Bros Unite

    In 2005, Nick formed a trio with older brothers Kevin and Joe, and they almost instantly landed a deal with Columbia Records. Before long, they were touring with Kelly Clarkson and the Cheetah Girls. At this stage, the boys weren't dating their tour mates -- yet. We don't think.

    The Big Debut

    The trio enjoyed their first big moment as a group when their debut album, 'It's About Time,' hit in August of 2006. But the celebration was short-lived: The record sold a paltry 62,000 copies, and the brothers Jonas were unceremoniously dropped from the label.

    The Magical World of Disney

    Undaunted, the bros landed another deal with Disney-owned Hollywood Records and in August of '07 released their self-titled sophomore effort 'Jonas Brothers.' The album premiered at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 200 and eventually went platinum. Suck on that, Columbia!

    Meeting Miley

    Kevin, Nick and Joe hit the jackpot when they guest-starred on the Aug. 17, 2007, episode of Miley Cyrus' 'Hannah Montana.' The ep was a record-breaking success for the Disney Channel and resulted in the joining of Cyrus-Jonas forces in more ways than one: They hit the road together for the $36 mil-grossing 'Best of Both Worlds' tour ... and Miley and Nick began collaborating on a little thing called love.

    Blood and Guts

    Joe earned the brothers some street cred at the 2007 American Music Awards when he fell and cut himself on broken glass during a performance of 'S.O.S' and then bounced right back up and finished out the song -- mangled hand and all. Tween girls everywhere swooned.

    'Camp Rock' Rocks

    In June of 2008, the Jonas Brothers' made-for-TV musical, 'Camp Rock,' debuted on the Disney Channel to a whopping 8.9 million viewers, making it the most-watched cable program of the year. A sequel was immediately (and not so shockingly) greenlit.

    Nick's Knack for Ladies

    After his secret two-year romance with Cyrus ended in 2007, Nick was linked to fellow Disney idol Selena Gomez in mid-2008. Though the two would not confirm their relationship at the time, they inadvertently kissed and told when they shared eerily similar first kiss stories with two different teen magazines.

    Rolling in It

    Just before their third record, 'A Little Bit Longer,' hit shelves, the Jonas Brothers graced their first-ever Rolling Stone cover -- a huge musical rite of passage. Upon its release, 'Longer' sold a staggering 525,000 copies to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200.
