During the four-night televised competition, these eight a cappella groups will vie for $100,000 and an Epic Records/Sony recording contract. A third judge will be announced for each night the show airs, NBC said.

The Harmony Sweepstakes are well represented with several Sweeps previous participants including our current National Champs Maxx Factor.
