Welcome back, Nathan Skyes! The Wanted have been missing their adorable bass singer since his hiatus following throat surgery. Sykes made his triumphant return to the stage at the 2013 Capital FM Summertime Ball.

Capital FM reports that the Wanted, being the jokesters that they are, informed the audience that Sykes wasn't well enough to join them onstage ... right when he appeared for 'I Found You.'

Sykes was reportedly so emotional that he hugged his bandmates at the end of the song. Awww!

The group, who currently star on their own E! reality show 'The Wanted Life' also performed 'Walks Like Rihanna,' 'Glad You Came' and 'All Time Low.'

Sykes underwent throat surgery following a long bout of vocal issues, and he was pretty worried about them before his recovery began. "It's not good at all. Nathan has battled with throat issues for a while but this is far more serious," a source said at the time. "After the once-over by the specialist, he was instructed to have almost immediate surgery. Naturally, Nathan is really worried as if it doesn't work, his career is over."

Needless to say, we're all happy he's back!
