So this is the song that cheated from 18th place to 1st at the Grammys? Makes sense, it's really not that good

Benicio NEEDS to record this song,his own version,exactly the one he sang in the audition(I don't think he has)

All over Twitter that she basically bought her Grammy nominations for this song last year when Ed Sheeran should have actually been nominated.

It's like a pain of joy, I mean like a satisfying disaster in the mind .. it tricks your mind to imagine what you already know but hard to define... This is the biggest shock song that has set my path straight.. Thanks to AGT performer

If anyone here is from the UK, you surely are familiar with the band Suede. The emotion in her vocals on this song remind me so much of the emotion and passion that Brett Anderson of Suede employs in his vocal technique. Absolutely beautiful!

Why no poor whites depicted? Only an old veteran to represent whites? Shame, girl.

With all due respect to the AGT kid, once you hear the real thing you remember that very few do it as well as Brandi Carlile.

Damn you Brandi Carlile. I'm trying to learn to play and sing this song but it's so emotional that by the first chorus my voice is cracking and by the end I'm bawling my eyes out and snotting everywhere. Damn you Brandi Carlile for making me feel stuff!

I’m glad to read here that most of those who are listening to the Joke understand it for what it is and it’s not a song about depression.
Free Spirit With Nature
For every single person,who’s been the underdog,this is for you / us ! We may need not be famous,but never ever change who you are ,for anyone. When others feel an incredible need to bully ,judge ,or be cruel,just because they can , doesn’t give them any kind of power . You see what doesn’t kill us ,makes us stronger. After we go through things ,we can learn from it ,or we can soak in anger,self pity,or arrogance. Every single human being,has a purpose for being here . I am a curious soul,but incredibly shy . I learned to speak up ,because I’ve lost to many people/ close friends,who shouldn’t have died ,but did . It’s our responsibility as friends,co-workers , sisters , brothers , etc , to be there . One ☝️ single act of random kindness,can stop someone from suicide, from doing something that they shouldn’t, and if you do it from your heart, you were blessed to have learned to use it wisely. ARK. Someone paid for my coffee in the lineup, and I’ve always done things to put a smile on someone’s face . You could meet your soulmate tomorrow, so what if they were disfigured? Would you stay,or would you go ? Love is not a feeling , but a decision. It’s real,if it’s unconditional. ❤️yourself first, then pass it on . ❤️❤️❤️!:) PS, Benicio did introduce me to this incredible song . Thanks 🙏 Benny !
