« RATINGS: 'Sing-Off' Sounds Like a Winner | Main | Meet the new Rockapella »

December 16, 2009

And then there were three

After another entertaining evening the judges narrowed the field by sending home MAXX Factor and The SoCals. I thought that MAXX Factor did a great job especially that as a quartet they had half of the number of voices of the next most populous group and only a third of the all male Beelezebubs. Well done ladies and we look forward to seeing you as hosts of the next season's Harmony Sweepstakes National Finals.

Ben Folds, as should really come as no surprise, is doing a wonderful job as a judge and his comments are spot on.

The voting is open at the Sing Off web site which is now full of photos and video clips. (I like how they are now labeling the clips Season 1...) The voting is only open until 9am EST Sunday Dec 20 so start voting now. That means the show will have the results long before the live final show. Does that therefore make the groups' performances redundant on the last show? Not so sure about that although I do understand the logistics of trying to do a live tally over different time zones. But still..

Looks like the Monday night show will have guests such as Bobby McFerrin and Smokey Robinson with a reunion performance from Boyz II Men.

I thought they did a great job of representing women, barbershop, and older a cappella musicians.

But Nota only has six members, so I wouldn't say Maxx Factor had half the voices or less of any other group.
