On their first night in the White House, Malia and Sasha Obama quickly learned the perks of being first daughters.

While their parents were making their rounds at 10 inaugural balls, the girls entertained new pals from the Sidwell Friends school – and had a surprise visit from the Jonas Brothers.

In a scavenger hunt designed to help Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7, get familiar with the White House, hiding at the end in the East Room was certainly an all-American treat: Kevin, Joe, and Nick Jonas!

“They were invited to surprise the girls and their friends and [the Jonas Brothers] had a blast,” a spokesperson for Grammy-nominated artists and the teen heartthrobs said of the surprise, which First Lady Michelle Obama helped orchestrate.

The Jonas Brothers, who came with their parents, were snuck in through the East Portico and played three acoustic songs and posed for photos with each of the young guests at the party.

It wasn’t the first time the Obamas had met the trio. On Monday night, the brothers performed for the girls and their mother (and 14,000 fans) at the Kids Inaugural concert.

Before the pop star pop-in, the group reportedly watched Bolt and High School Musical 3 in the White House theater.
