Actor/musician Jack Black presented the award to the trio as they told fans they remembered being bullied when they were teenagers.

Kevin Jonas recalled being bullied over his frosted hair, and Nick Jonas talked about being bullied by some of his teachers.

“The reason we are telling you these stories is because the first award we ever won was a Teen Choice Award and it meant so much to us because it was voted on by teens,” Kevin Jonas said.

“Those things that you feel like you’re singled out about, that you’re bullied about that define you in your teen years, can become the thing that makes you special. That’s your gift, that’s your power,” Nick Jonas told the hundreds of fans.

 

The brothers attended their first show in 2007 with Miley Cyrus to promote their Best of Both Worlds tour and they hosted the show in 2009, according to Pop Sugar.

“It really has been an unbelievable journey for us,” the brothers said in a taped segment on the show before they received the award as they thanked fans.

The Jonas Brothers have sold more than 17 million albums worldwide.
