Sara Bareilles Sings Grammy Nominated 'Brave' on 'The View'!

Sara Bareilles sits down at her piano for a performance of her song “Brave” on The View on Monday morning (January 20) in New York City.

“Today we remember a great hero and his legacy. In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I am dreaming big for a better world today,” the 34-year-old singer tweeted that day.

Sara has a big week ahead of her as she heads to the 2014 Grammy Awards this weekend, where she is nominated for two awards – Album of the Year for The Blessed Unrest and Best Pop Solo Performance for “Brave.” She will also be hitting the stage during the show for a performance with the legendary artist Carole King. We cannot wait!

Like to know what Sara did to get the secret committee to nominate her for AOTY. Her peers didn’t even nominate her in her own category of best pop album. Since it became publicly known this year that the top 4 categories are actually chosen by a secret committee I have to wonder about Sara. She should not have been chosen when her own peers didn’t choose her.

@mick: considering that she’s a better singer and musician than most famous pop singers and doesn’t use backup vocals or lipsync or heavily produced auto tune like the majority, I can understand her nomination. It’s a genuine nomination, not nomination based on popularity contest a la gaga, katy perry, and rihanna

@hmm: No it was a nomination by a secret group of people not the other musicians, sound engineers, producers etc that make up the grammy voters. There are plenty of pop singers that don’t use auto tune, are heavily produced, or lip sync. In fact, every artist in the best pop album category would have been a better choice. I’m sure several of them were in the final nominations for AOTY ahead of Sara, since she wasn’t chosen for the Pop Album Category, but someone made the decision to give it to her. Now, all of a sudden she’s everywhere. I’m not saying Sara can’t sing. She just had to have done something to get this.

@mick: You’re wrong. The voting for Album of the Year, and three other categories, is first done by the entire academy, i.e. her peers. They then create a short list of 20 nominees that is reviewed and voted on by said committee, who are her peers as well. They literally go into a room and needle drop, listening to several tracks off each of the 20 chosen albums.

Sara didn’t ‘do’ anything to get this, except make a record that her peers thought was worthy. She doesn’t have a lot of big names behind her, unlike the other nominees–take a look at the credits on the album, it’s just her and a couple of co-producers, while everyone else has a list a mile long.

p.s. Mick, the more I think about it, the more hilarious I find it that you think Sara “did something” to get the nomination. Paid people off with her millions? Traded sexual favors? Never let the facts get in the way of a good conspiracy theory, I guess. Seriously, though–if you have a problem with the nomination, blame the process, don’t blame the artist with some lame accusatory conjecture.
