Brandi Carlile Performs Solo Acoustic The Joke On Ellen

Singer Brandi Carlile took the stage with a moving acoustic version of her Grammy-winning song, “The Joke.” She also chatted with Ellen about her big night at the awards show, where she won three Grammys, and was the most nominated female artist of the night.

Carlile’s appearance on Ellen also had a special significance — during one of her three acceptance speeches at the Grammys, the singer paid tribute to host Ellen DeGeneres for inspiring her to come out as a teenager. “It’s a brave thing to do, too,” DeGeneres tells Carlile after the performance. “Most people that are performing, they worry about their career, so it’s a brave thing for you to be open and out.”
