Nick, Joe, and Kevin Jonas make up the pop group the Jonas Brothers. The boy band is currently nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their song "Sucker."

DeGeneres is also a nominee this year for Best Comedy Album for her Netflix special “Relatable.” While interviewing the three brothers, Nick asked the television host and comedienne if her nomination was her first one.

Ellen’s three Grammy nominations

DeGeneres quickly confirmed that it was before realizing that she wasn’t sure, much to the pleasure of the audience. A clip of the interaction showed her asking her show’s producer if it really was the first nomination.

The producer is seen holding up two fingers and the actress notes: "No, this is my second Grammy nomination." The producer appears to think about it for a second and doubles back by clarifying that it’s actually the third one.

After the confusion, Nick joked: "I'm sorry, we only have two." Not to be outdone, DeGeneres retorted back: "That's terrible."

She then added that this year’s nomination was her “favorite” one. The television host also shared that she really wanted to win the Grammy this year.

Jonas Brothers also hope to win

Nick agreed with her stating that they too were keen on winning the award. One can’t really fault DeGeneres for forgetting the number of accolades she’s received.

DeGeneres gets the Carol Burnett Award

During the 77th Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California, the star was honored with the Carol Burnett Award. The award was given out for its second year running.
