The 15th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards Announces Nick Jonas & The Administration as This Year's House Band

AWARDS CEREMONY TO BE BROADCAST LIVE ON VH1 FRIDAY, JANUARY 15 AT 9:00 PM ET/PT

KRISTIN CHENOWETH TO HOST THE EVENING

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Dec. 16 -- Nick Jonas & The Administration will be taking center stage at this year's Critics' Choice Movie Awards as the evening's house band where they will perform classic hits as well a few of their original songs between awards and commercials. Joining Nick are four accomplished musicians who make up The Administration -- bassist/producer John Fields and three former members of Prince's New Power Generation including drummer Michael Bland, keyboardist Tommy Barbarella and guitarist Sonny Thompson. The band will make their award show debut at the 15th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards hosted by Kristin Chenoweth on Friday, January 15, 2010 at 9:00 PM ET/PT.

Earlier this year, Nick and the band spent time in Nashville, Tennessee to record the album. What emerged was "a cross between my roots in R&B and soul with a kind of rock/pop music behind it" described Nick. The album, "Who I Am" will be released on February 2 while their tour kicks off on January 2, 2010 in Dallas, TX.

"We could not be more excited to have Nick Jonas & The Administration on our stage at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards," said Tom Calderone, President, VH1. "We pride ourselves at VH1 on presenting high-energy performances by top artists during our live events. Nick and his band will certainly continue that tradition, revealing another side of Nick that his fans haven't seen yet."
