Former child celebrity and current buff person Nick Jonas visited F.A.O. Schwarz yesterday, and the result was probably the sexiest thing that has ever occurred in a toy store. Not only did he perform almost the entire length of "Jealous"falsetto chorus and all—with nary but the Big Piano as accompaniment, but he did it all while hopping from key to key. (Bonus points for that beanie, which managed to stay on through the whole thing.)

It could be the last visit that the JoBro makes to the iconic toy store—at least in its current home: Recently, news came that it's moving across the river to the New Jersey megamall, American Dream Meadowlands. The behemoth shopping center is slated to open in fall 2016, but F.A.O's Fifth Avenue lease continues through 2017—no word on whether they'll break it ahead of the move.

In the meantime, please continue swooning:
