Joe and his band DNCE cover 'Hello' complete with colorful tears and rainbow wigs

MANILA, Philippines – There’s no denying that  Adele’s “Hello” is sad, but watching a sad clown singing it might be even worse. 

To celebrate Halloween, Joe Jonas and his band DNCE covered the hit song in full sad clown getup, complete with colorful tears, rainbow wigs, and downturned lips.

The visuals may be distracting, but the cover itself is great, with Joe showing off his vocal range as he belts out Adele’s heartbreaking song.

DNCE comes two years after the Jonas Brothers’ breakup in in 2013, and is described by Rolling Stone as a “funk-pop” group. They released their EP SWAAY on October 23. Have a listen to a sampling below:


Aside from Joe, DNCE is composed of drummer Jack Lawless, guitarist JinJoo, and bassist Cole Whittle. They released their first song, “Cake By the Ocean,” on their YouTube channel on September 18.


Adele’s “Hello,” the first single released from her new album 25, has well-loved by fans, mashed-up with Lionel Richie’s song of the same title, and spoofed by comedians like Ellen DeGeneres.
