It's a bit of a diversion from his usual kind of pop music, but fans of Nick Jonas were still proud to support him as he made his debut in Les Miserables last night (June 21st 2010).
The singer will be appearing as Marius in the long-running show at the Queen's Theatre for three weeks and, as reported yesterday, his whole family flew to London to cheer him on.
His parents Denise and Paul, as well as brothers Kevin, Joe and Frankie, were among those who rose to give Nick and the rest of the cast a standing ovation at the end of the performance.
After his final curtain call, Nick told ITN that being on the stage of a London theatre is taking some acclimatising to after so long as one-third of the Jonas Brothers.
"I'm just getting used to that mindset. Trying to re-learn how to sing [theatrical-style music] has been interesting and a lot of fun," he explained.
Les Miserables celebrates its 25th birthday in the West End in 2010 and there will be two versions of the musical showing in the capital simultaneously for the first time soon, as well a concert version at the O2 Arena.
