There was a lot going on for the Thanksgiving Day game between the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys. Not only would a win help one of these NFC East rivals clinch a spot in the postseason, but the winner gets Nick Jonas. Actually, that last part wasn’t true, but given Nick’s history with Dallas and the Giants, it added some excitement to the Jonas Brothers halftime show on Nov. 24. When Nick, 30, Joe Jonasand Kevin Jonas everyone hit the AT&T Stadium field for the halftime specular, reunited Jonas Brothers they brought family vibes along with their signature flair.

Although the Jonas Brothers hail from New Jersey and are New York Giants fans — they grew up in Wycoff, just 20 miles from MetLife Stadium — they have some history with the Cowboys. Nick was actually born in Dallas, and the Jonas Brothers actually played the Cowboys Thanksgiving Day show in 2008, the team’s final season at Texas Stadium in Irving, TX.

“We couldn’t be more excited to return to AT&T Stadium to play The Salvation Army’s halftime show,” the Jonas Brothers said in a press release. “We are honored that our performance will help raise awareness of the great need that exists and encourage everyone to donate to The Salvation Army to make a difference in their communities this holiday season and throughout the year.”
