Sing-Off groups announced

The 16 competitors in the upcoming season of the Sing-Off have been announced. Looks like a great line-up and am pleased to see that for a third year in a row a former Harmony Sweepstakes national champion group is included. North Shore won the Finals back in 1991 (I still listen to their fabulous version of "Marooned in a Blizzard of Lies" ).

Afro-Blue - A nine-person ensemble from Howard University
The Cat’s Pajamas - An energetic all-male group based in Branson, Mo.
The Collective - Nashville troupe formed by season-two contestant Jeremy Lister (Street Corner Symphony)
Dartmouth Aires - 15 quirky guys from the New Hampshire Ivy League school
Delilah - An L.A.-based all-female group including members from the first two Sing-Off seasons
The Deltones - Co-ed ensemble from The University of Delaware
Fannin Family - An octet of relatives from the Midwest
Kinfolk 9 - A professional group out of L.A. with members who all have the ability to share lead vocals
Messiah’s Men - Liberian refugees on a mission to serve God through music
North Shore - A Boston-based streetcorner ensemble tackling music from the ’40 to today
Pentatonix - Five-member group from Arlington, Tex., with eclectic musical tastes
Sonos - Well-known professional a cappella group who have collaborated in the past with Bareilles
Soul’d Out - Co-ed high school club from Wilsonville, Ore.
Urban Method - Newly-formed act from Denver including a rapper
Vocal Point - All-male ensemble from Brigham Young University
The YellowJackets - Contemporary crew from the University of Rochester known for wearing yellow blazers

The winning act will score $200,000 and a recording contract with Sony Music.
