Jonas Brothers Love Rick Astley

The Jonas Brothers are obsessed with Rick Astley.

The musical trio are big fans of the 80s British singer - who caused an upset by winning Best Act Ever at last year's MTV Europe Music Awards after becoming a YouTube sensation - and regularly cover his most famous hit.

Kevin said: "A big one for us that we sing all the time is Rick Astley's 'Never Gonna Give You Up'.

"Have you ever seen him, by the way? His voice does not match his body!"

The band - which also features Nick and Joe - also revealed they are desperate to win a Grammy Award and dream of touring with 'Purple Rain' singer Prince.

Kevin added: "I think to perform with Prince would be incredible. I think that would be one of the best things of all time."

Meanwhile, the Jonas Brothers are looking forward to attending the Kids' Choice Awards in Los Angeles next month.

The stars - who won Favourite Music Group last year - are hoping to pick up the accolade again and are also keen to get into the spirit of the ceremony by being covered in slime.

Kevin said: "We were almost slimed just by getting hugged by Jack Black when we were on the stage last year. Maybe it's our year. We'll have to see."

Each year, buckets of green goo are poured on the 'chosen ones' - the viewer's favourite celebrities.

The group - who will perform at the event on March 28 at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion - are participating in a contest called Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Jonas Jam Sweepstakes.

Two lucky fans will accompany the Jonas Brothers to the ceremony in a limo, win $1,000 and get a four-day trip to Los Angeles.
