Last night, the 2016 "Victoria's Secret Swim Special" aired, featuring some of the biggest Angels as they shot the new Victoria's Secret swimwear catalog. Unlike the "Victoria's Secret Fashion Show," the "Swim Special" featured no runway, but instead a behind-the-scenes look at models like Candice Swanepoel, Behati Prinsloo and Lily Aldridge.
The one-hour special featured the perspective that the models have while "shooting the hottest swim catalog and exploring St. Barth island life - from the city streets to the beaches," according to a press release.
"You get to see us being silly and having fun and just kind of follow us throughout our day," Aldridge said of the show. "We just want people to see us as humans, see a personality, see what we go through at our jobs. We're regular girls."
In addition to watching the angels shoot while sea-boating and paddleboarding, the "Victoria's Secret Swim Special" also featured performances by Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato. Lovato took the stage first and performed a number of her hits, including "Cool for the Summer," "For You" and "Confident" as the models danced below her. Throughout Lovato's three performances, the special showed both the models singing along to the songs live and singing during the behind-the-scenes portions.
The scene was changed for Jonas' performance as he sang his new single "Levels," as well as a medley of "Jealous" and "Chains." While the models were dressed in all black for Lovato's performance, for Jonas' they all wore white tops and jean shorts. The former Jonas Brother band member did not just sing in the special, he also helped the Angels referee a friendly game of beach volleyball that brought out the competitive side of models Prinsloo and Taylor Hill.
The "Victoria's Secret Swim Special" was shot back in December 2015 and also featured Elsa Hosk, Jasmine Tookes, Lais Ribiero, Martha Hunt, Romee Strijd, Sara Sampaio, Stella Maxwell, Josephine Skriver and Vita Sidorkina. This was the second year in a row that a special for the Victoria's Secret catalog was broadcast on CBS.
