The Sing Off Premiere Recap – Which Acapella Group Ruled the Stage? (Video)


the sing off videoThe Sing Off Season 2 premiered last night with a whole new crop of acapella singers hoping to show off their Glee club performing skills.    There’s no big band or big production to hid behind, the competition comes down to which group has the best singing chops to help earn  a music contract from Sony and a $100,000 cash prize.

One of the groups that appeared on the first season of The Sing Off, The Beezlebubs, is rumored to be the inspiration behind the Warblers appearing on the current season of Glee!

See our recap of the premiere of The Sing Off season 2 and watch the best performances of the night….

The show started the night with ten hopeful groups ready to sing their way into acapella history.  Broken out into two groups with the lowest scorer in each being destined to go home, the show got off to a rocky start.  It appears that most of the best acts were packed into the second half of the show with the exception of Jerry Lawson & The Talk of the Town whose old-school offering of Save the Last Dance for Me wowed both the judges and the crowd.   The group was joined by Internet sensation University of Oregon singers, On the Rocks, by getting a pass into the second round.  The Boston-based Pitch Slapped was sent packing.

The second group really got the night started with high impact performances all-around.   It was the gospel group Committed that won the round with their rendition of Maroon 5’s This Love.    The song left jaws hanging and the judges amazed.  Around my house, it was the Southern rockers Street Corner Symphony who delighted the kids and got the audience rocking out.  All the great performances in the second act was bad news for the New Jersey based Men of Note who would have gotten through easily in the first group but insted got sent home in the second.
