Watch: Westlake's Own Nick Jonas Performs At White House As Part of Motown Tribute. Huh?

Last night, to celebrate Black History Month, President Barack Obama invited a whole cast of big name musical performers to the White House to participate in a tribute to Motown. Among those invited to perform? Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, Terrell's Own Jamie Foxx, Seal and John Legend.

Also invited to perform? Westlake's Own Nick Jonas. He joined Legend, Seal and a very improvisational Foxx to perform a medley of Temptations songs. It's awkward at best. And let's just say that this Jo and his new Bros aren't so hot at choreography.

There's an easy reason behind this move: The Obama daughters are noted Jonas fans. But that doesn't make the performance any less bizarre. Give it a watch after the jump.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
