Nick Ditches the Jonas Brothers for Solo Project

After dodging seemingly endless rumors about what his "going solo" would mean for the Jonas Brothers, Nick Jonas finally made his side-project debut. And, perhaps in an effort to quell the fears of JoBro fanatics, his brothers were on hand to wish him well in his new endeavor.

Nick Jonas and the Administration had their premiere performance on Wednesday night's Grammy nominations concert special, and though Nick was glad Joe and Kevin were there to introduce his new band, he admitted it wasn't the easiest thing he's ever done.

"It definitely was different," Nick told MTV News backstage at the show. "But I think going into it, knowing they were supportive made it all right. I was looking forward to it. It was a lot of fun being up there tonight. Having my fans up top and my brothers down on the floor just made for a great, comfortable environment to premiere this new side project, this new record."

If you're wondering what the heck Nick's new band name means, and you're thinking maybe it has something to do with the Executive Branch of the U.S. Government, you're on the right track.

The 17-year-old Disney superstar told that Nick Jonas and the Administration reveals something about his "fascination with the presidency." And if the band name doesn't sufficiently drive home that point, the song on their album might. Who I Am includes titles such as "The Rose Garden," "Olive & An Arrow," "Conspiracy Theory" and "State of Emergency."

Nick Jonas and The Administration will set out on a tour on January 2nd; the album, Who I Am, comes out a month later, on February 2nd.
