Planning to release his album with The Administration on February 2, Nick Jonas will perform at the Grammy Nominations Concert Live on December 2.
Nick Jonas and The Administration are going to rock "The Grammy Nominations Concert Live!! - Countdown to Music's Biggest Night". Introducing their performance at the gig will be Nick's brothers/bandmates Kevin Jonas and Joe Jonas from the Jonas Brothers.
Hosted by LL Cool J, the Grammy Nominations Concert will take place at Club Nokia in Los Angeles on December 2. Other confirmed musical guests are Black Eyed Peas, Maxwell and Sugarland. It will announce nominees for the 52nd annual Grammys which will be held on January 31, 2010 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
Nick Jonas confirmed his side project with The Administration in October. Earlier this week, cover art and snippet of his first solo single "Who I Am" hit the web. Then, he took it to USA Today to announce that his debut album will also be titled "Who I Am" and will be released in U.S. on February 2.
Of other materials in the forthcoming studio release, Nick said, "I had written five or six songs that were on my heart, things that were just pouring out of me with this new and exciting sound. They weren't necessarily right for the Jonas Brothers, but I thought they could be perfect for something else."
Furthermore, he described his music with The Administration, stating "It's a cross between my roots in R&B and soul with a kind of rock/pop music behind it." Nick went on talking about the album, "It's a very organic record. We weren't really thinking about format or whether a song was going to sound like a hit or not."
A tour is planned to be kicked off in early 2010 before the next season of Disney Channel's "J.O.N.A.S!" begins its production. "We're going to play the record and a couple of covers, songs that we all like and want to play live," he opened up. "I've thought that I would play some of the songs that I've written for the Jonas Brothers, things that are personal to me."
