The Sing Off

December 15, 2009

Some comments.

1. Randomest judges ever.

2. Did you know that this is what Ben Folds looks like?

3. I’m going to go out on a not so long limb here and say that all three of the a cappella groups at my college were better than these groups on the show.

Go to this link and listen to the Octaves song from the University of Richmond. My favorite is “King of Wishful Thinking.”

My favorite group (non-UR) is the Clef Hangers from UNC. Amazing.

HMMM, DO YOU RECOGNIZE THAT LEAD SINGER SOLOIST???

The one and only Anoop from this season of Idol!!

ANYWAY, it’s an amusing show for TV, but it’s not the best a cappella I’ve ever heard.

    I started watching this too and had the same reaction – how did they choose these judges?? Totally weird. I can understand the Boyz to Men dude because of their harmonies (way back in the 80’s), but still…

    It’s a cool concept and a couple of the groups are pretty good (SoCals are my fave right now although they seem to have that we-are-better-than-you attitude and Nota did well last night).

    This is one of those shows where if it comes back for another season, the talented groups will come out of the woodwork once the show gains popularity and next season could be really good.
