Nick Jonas chatted with MTV backstage about performing by himself: 'It definitely was different. 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.'
Why did Nick choose the Grammy concert as his band's debut? The Admin's debut album Who I Am, comes out on February 2, after a kick-off tour in January: 'When going through the setup of the record with the team, we were trying to think of the right vehicle to premiere this record. This kind of fell into the perfect timeslot. ..It meant the world to me, and just to be here is an honor.'

Taylor Swift gushed on her 8 Grammy nominations: 'I started freaking out and jumping up and down. I honestly never would have predicted this, eight nominations, I'm ecstatic, and blown away and so so thankful.
To be recognized by the Grammys is the ultimate honor, and all I know is that when I write about this in my journal tonight it will be in all capital letters and underlined four times, and there will be lots of exclamation points in this entry because I never imagined I'd get to write this kind of journal entry.'
Taylor said she was holed up in a Los Angeles hotel room with her mother, editing home videos on her computer, when the nominations were being read. It was then she got a text from her producer, Nathan Chapman, that just read "AAUUGGH!!!!!'
