It's the death match fans have been waiting for: The Jonas Brothers vs. Barbara Walters! The veteran reporter used her hard-hitting journalistic abilities to make the JoBros squirm during her annual Oscar special Sunday night.
Joe shifted nervously in his seat when asked about country sensation Taylor Swift, who famously bashed him after he reportedly broke up with her via a 27-second phone call. Joe avoided mentioning his rumored new girl, Camilla Belle, but attempted to put an end to this Swift-boating incident by referring to the teen star as a "friend."
Walters then turned her attention to Nick's relationship with Disney's reigning princess.
"For almost two years you were linked to Miley Cyrus," she said. "Was it a real romance?"
"I don't know what you call a real romance at 14, but she's a friend now, and that's what's important," Nick dodged.
When Walters reminded him that Cyrus had said the two "were in love," Nick responded expansively.
"I think it really comes down to a good friendship and whatever that has in the future."
Walters then exclaims, "Am I gonna find anything out here?" The JoBros reply, "Probably not!"
The boys can be content in the knowledge that they succeeded where many a world leader has failed: They stonewalled Barbara Walters!
