Results from the Sing-Off premiere

Here's the opening number of tonight's premiere episode of the Sing Off. It was a fun show to watch and I enjoyed it more, frankly, than I expected being the somewhat jaded producer who, now I think about it, has probably seen more a cappella groups perform than anybody else anywhere! (Wow I had never thought of that before but with 20 plus years of both regional and national Harmony Sweepstakes contests, over a decade of the A Cappella Summit and too-many-to-remember other shows I have either produced or watched, I can't think of anybody else who would of seen so many groups.)

I thought the judges' comments were very good and I agreed with much of what was said although I did not think that Face deserved elimination. The other group voted out were newcomers Solo who did an admirable job but were clearly out of their league. All told I thought the show was very entertaining and I look forward to tomorrow night.

I agree with you about Face. I thought their performance better than several of the other groups that remain in the competition.

Almost all the groups sang better on Tuesday night. Maybe they're over the initial jitters?

Going in, I thought Face would be one of my least favorite groups. Turned out, I actually thought they did the BEST job on Monday, and I was stunned to see them eliminated.

While I enjoy the 4 part harmony of Maxx Factor more than the chorale group sound of the rest, I would have voted them off myself for the weak 2nd performance tonight.

Overall though, I'm not enjoying the show nearly as much as I thought I would. I think Lachey and Scherzinger are getting in the way. Doesn't anyone else find it insulting that he has to tell us that there is no instrumental accompaniment before every single act? Or the fact that Scherzinger doesn't seem to contribute anything other than gushing over every single performance?

What a wonderful show...finally! We were so excited to see what it was going to like since my husband's group received a PERSONAL invitation from the producers. Due to family commitments they were unable to participate.

We are rooting for two groups in particular that we won't disclose and hope to do specials on them on our radio show.

We would LOVE to have any acapella group be apart of our show wince that is the only type of music that we play.
