Watch ‘SNL’ host Nick Jonas visit Dionne Warwick’s talk show
“The Dionne Warwick Talk Show” was back in action on “Saturday Night Live” this week, bringing together two musical stars from New Jersey: Warwick and Nick Jonas.
Jonas, 28, served as both host and musical guest on “SNL.” The Jonas Brothers star performed his new solo single “Spaceman” and the song “This is Heaven” from his album “Spaceman,” due out March 12.
The sketch show debuted its Dionne Warwick talk show segment in December, on the heels of Warwick’s Twitter takeover, with Ego Nwodim playing the singer from East Orange and Punkie Johnson playing Warwick’s niece, Brittani Warrick.
Nwodim reprised the role of Warwick Saturday. Her talk show guests included Dua Lipa (played by Melissa Villaseñor), The Weeknd (Kenan Thompson), Machine Gun Kelly (Pete Davidson) and Jonas, playing himself.
“Explain yourself,” Nwodim’s Warwick said, welcoming Jonas to the show.
“I’m Nick Jonas. I’m a coach on ‘The Voice,’” he said.
“I have heard that you are the most boring coach,” Warwick replied. “Even though one of the other coaches is John Legend. How is that possible?”
Warwick proceeded to ask Jonas about “Cake by the Ocean,” his brother Joe’s song with his band DNCE.
Nwodim’s Warwick also kept up her long-running feud with Ocean Township’s Wendy Williams.
“Do you and your brothers ever fight?” Warwick asked Jonas. “Could you fight Wendy Williams for me?”
Jonas grew up in Wyckoff with his brothers Nick and Joe Jonas, the other members of the Jonas Brothers.
In addition to serving as a coach on “The Voice,” Jonas will appear in the upcoming movie “Chaos Walking” with Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley and is reportedly in talks to play Four Seasons singer Frankie Valli in a new version of the Tony-winning musical “Jersey Boys” for streaming.
