All good things must come to an end sooner or later.  The once popular boy band “The Jonas Brothers” has split.  The split was announced on October 29, 2013, six years after brothers Kevin, Joe and Nick released their self-titled debut album “Jonas Brothers.”  After the release of their song “SOS,” the band skyrocketed to fame with an audience composed mostly of pre-teen girls head-over-heels for the new teenage heartthrobs.

On their rise to fame, the band went on the “Best of Both Worlds” tour with Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana.  Five months after the brothers released their debut album, the Jonas Brothers released their third single, “When You Look Me in the Eyes,” on January 25, 2008, and five days later started their “When You Look me in the Eyes” tour.

Many fans are in mourning because of this news from the entertainment world because so many current teenage girls grew up listening to this successful band.  The teenage girls probably wish they could turn back the clock to the year 2007 when the band first found success.  Girls all around the world would call “dibs” on which brother was “hers.”  The Jonas brothers were a heartthrob boy band.  The split was suspected because the brothers canceled their nineteen-show tour.  Album five, which is unnamed, was the record the brothers were going to release, but apparently that is no longer going to happen.  According to People Magazine, the separation is due to the fact that Nick felt trapped in the band, and the three brothers agreed it was time to end the era of the Jonas Brothers.

Not every band lasts forever. Look at N’SYNC, for example–the boys grew up.  Just because a band breaks up does not mean their fans have to stop listening the band’s music.  The emergence of Justin Bieber was a turning point in the Jonas Brothers’ popularity, as attention switched focus from one “JB” to another.  Boy bands are always going to appear, one after the other.  So, Jonas Brothers fans can either find other bands to listen to, such as “One Direction,” “The Wanted,” or maybe the new “JB.”  The second option is to just sit and pout and hope that by some miracle this behavior will bring the brothers back together. The Jonas Brothers may be over, but hopefully Kevin, Joe, and Nick stick with music by branching from each other o do some solo things.  Maybe Nick, Joe ,or Kevin will become the next Justin Timberlake, or else the three musketeers will fade away like most other singers who became unpopular after a while.
