Earlier, she was a little nervous about messing up. She revealed to Ryan Seacrest that she doesn't want to "screw up someone's name" while presenting during the show.
So, she pre-recorded all the names for the nominees because she was like, "Oh my God I'm definitely gonna mess this up!"
Well, nothing to worry, PC. No mess ups tonight.
Take a look at her backstage moment:
