Nick said, "you can see there are some advantages, some disadvantages. To be honest, I had to break a lot of bad habits as a performer. Being on American Idol is totally different than playing with my band at a bar in front of 80 people. It's a whole different thing trying to connect with a camera, so it took me a while to get comfortable, but once I did it kind of all fell into place."

Jennifer Lopez said, "Own your hotness," which he thought was pretty wild and was embarrassed. He "owned his hotness" by being confident.

You may have seen him on America's Got Talent when he was on the show with his band, but they must have got it wrong.
