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.
