Nick Jonas & The Administration, the youngest of the Jonas Brothers' new side project, will make their live debut at "The Grammy Nominations Concert Live!!" in Los Angeles on December 2nd. To demonstrate Jonas solidarity, Kevin and Joe will lend some brotherly support by introducing the band at its first-ever performance, at Club Nokia. Nick Jonas will join previously announced performers the Black Eyed Peas, Maxwell and Sugarland at the Grammys noms show, where LL Cool J will serve as the evening's host.

As Rolling Stone previously reported, Jonas recorded the Administration's first album in Nashville while on a two-week break. The Administration are comprised of four musicians that the Jonas gang had previously worked with, including bassist/producer John Fields, drummer Michael Bland and keyboardist Tommy Barbarella — who both logged time with Prince in the New Power Generation — and guitarist David Ryan Harris, who will be replaced by Sonny Thompson (also of the NPG) for live appearances, according to USA Today.
Nick Jonas described the music on his side project as " 'heart & soul,' because the music that I make is from my heart, and the lyrics I write are from my soul."
