New Sing-Off Judge Sara Bareilles Returns to Her A Cappella Roots: "It Was a Really Good Fit"

The Sing-Off, Sara Bareilles

Before she sold a million records, before she had a No. 1 song and before she was nominated for three Grammy awards, Sara Bareilles was kind of a nerd, and she's not afraid to admit it.
