I think it's great that singing is getting more attention but why does it always need to be a competition?

The way this show does it (like American idle) where after a wonderful performance half the groups are sent home seem kind of harsh.

My final complaint is what's up with all the screaming? I mean the audience, you can't hear the songs.

I can't wait for the show to air and hear all the talent. This year's Sing-Off Contestants are very fortunate to have this amount of exposure. Good luck to you all! "In my eyes, you're all winners"
A cappella will forever be here....the true art.
