Brandi Carlile gave voice to the marginalized with the stunning track The Joke off her album By the Way, I Forgive You. At Sunday’s Grammy Awards, it was Carlile’s own voice that took center stage, as she stunned the audience with an explosive rendition of the song. Flanked by Phil Hanseroth and Tim Hanseroth - whom she refers to as The Twins, both in white jackets and hats - and with Shooter Jennings behind her on piano, Carlile guided the empowering anthem to its majestic climax, a cathartic cry of the lyric the joke’s on them. Carlile wrote the song with the Hanseroths and Dave Cobb, who co-produced By the Way, I Forgive You with Jennings. Earlier in the day, Carlile, nominated for six Grammys, won Best Americana Album, Best American Roots Performance and Best American Roots Song.
The joke’s on you, Neil Portnow. As for the 2019 Grammys ceremony, there’s no doubt about it: Women dominated the show, the winners list and the night as a whole. Another of those fearless women is Album of the Year nominee Brandi Carlile, the songwriter who took home three trophies today for Americana Album, American Roots Song and American Roots Performance. She performed a stunning rendition of The Joke, the beautiful Song of the Year nominee from her 2018 album By the Way, I Forgive You. The core-shaking performance left onlookers in tears. Everyone from Anna Kendrick to Sheryl Crow was in awe
Brandi Carlile is the most-nominated woman at this year's Grammy Awards, and her performance proved that she is no joke. The country singer and recent Billboard cover star sang her Grammy-winning hit "The Joke" toward the end of the 2019 broadcast Sunday night (Feb. 10), giving the powerful track everything she has and more to the Grammy stage. As the song's lyrics scribbled across the screen behind her, Carlile delivered a striking vocal performance that had everyone on their feet (and even got Maren Morris screaming "Fuck yeah!"). Carlile was also nominated for three of the night's biggest honors, album of the year, record of the year and song of the year. Watch a clip of Brandi's Grammy performance of "The Joke" above.
Brandi Carlile Gave A Rousing Performance Of ‘The Joke’ At The 2019 Grammys.

She gave a stirring rendition of the song tonight toward the end of the show with a full band, a shiny jacket, and gold filigreed lyrics on the big screen behind her, clearly moved by the overwhelming response that the Grammys showed her work. It’s still to be seen whether or not she’ll pick up the big award for Album Of The Year, but the way her streak has gone tonight she just might take that one home,.
