Nick Jonas attends the 2015 Tony Awards  at Radio City Music Hall on June 7, 2015 in New York City.

Following Iggy Azalea's exit from Pittsburgh Pride due to some questionable tweets from her past, Nick Jonas will perform at the event instead.

A statement from the Delta Foundation of Pittsburgh says Jonas contacted event organizers himself after hearing of Azalea's cancellation. “Nick had heard about Pittsburgh Pride in the media and called us on Tuesday and said he would like to come and perform," said Gary Van Horn, president of Delta Foundation. "He has been a supporter of the LGBT community, and he wanted to make sure that the community and Pittsburgh had a Pride event that they could be proud of.”
