  • Sara Bareilles was so beautiful tonight and she sang so good! :love:
  • And I wonder when Dartmouth Aires and/or The Yellowjackets will be on Glee!? :)

    I can see the Aires being on Glee since they're very ~theatrical.

    Sara Bareilles leaving 'The Sing-Off'
    by James Hibberd


    The X Factor and The Voice aren’t the only singing shows shaking up their judging panels this year.

    Sara Bareilles is leaving NBC’s competition series The Sing-Off. The Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter wants to “focus on her music,” says a source close to Bareilles. She replaced original Sing-Off judge Nicole Scherzinger for the show’s third season after Scherzinger departed to Fox’s X Factor.

    The move creates at least one opening on the judges panel for the lively a cappella competition. The show is being overhauled for its upcoming fourth round by its new executive producer — The Voice and Survivor guru Mark Burnett. It’s not yet clear if there are more departures to come. The show stars host Nick Lachey, and judges Ben Folds and Shawn Stockman.

    Since The Sing-Off premiered in December, 2009, the series has its ups and downs in the ratings, but has maintained a fan-base of admirers. When it wasn’t renewed in 2012, many thought the show was cancelled. But last month NBC announced The Sing-Off would return sometime during the holiday season.

    “The Sing-Off showcases great talent and a musical form I love,” Burnett said last month. “It’s very special, and we’re excited to be involved.”



    So sad. She was an awesome judge. :(

    Any picks on who would replace her? I'm kinda wishing it's someone from Pitch Perfect (coz NBC...) :lol: I'm assuming they're bringing the show back because of the success of the movie. :shrug:

    Aww. :( Good luck to her then. I myself am excited to hear her upcoming new releases.
  • sarkastik_akosarkastik_ako PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    up up up!!

    Jewel is the new judge!!

    From The Sing Off FB page:
    Turn on those happy tunes!

    We’re excited to announce that Jewel will be joining judges Shawn Stockman and Ben Folds along with returning host Nick Lachey!
  • caitdawncaitdawn Clay Court Specialist
    Not sure how I feel about Jewel. :lol: We'll see. I'm so excited! :bounce: And they're going back to their original broadcast pattern as a holiday strip in December. :D
  • bluegreybluegrey PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Jewel is great in Platinum Hit. I'm excited. :D

    Twitter: @acoUstiKats
    Self-described: “Justin Timberlake meets Kentucky Fried Chicken”
    First Glance: Well, this University of Kentucky all-male-undergrad crew knows how to market themselves, I’ll give them that much. And then I’ll give them a lot more because I’m a total sucker for the fratty university groups. If you loved the Beelzebubs and are still pining for The Darmouth Aires’ Michael Odokara-Okigbo, then you’ll probably be tossing your vote to AcoUstiKats too (alright, the name could use some work).
    Let the music speak: They’re a little lacking in their online presence, but this cover of Avicii’s “Wake Me Up” has me quite excited. So many button-ups and harmonies!

    Calle Sol
    Twitter: @calle_solpr
    Self-described: “It’s a ONE STOP SHOP TO THE FIESTA!!”
    First Glance: Their use of caps-lock seems well suited to the a cappella world. The recently formed group looks to be made up of four female vocalists and two male percussionists, all hailing from Puerto Rico. Smaller groups’ sound can sometimes sound weaker next to huge harmonies, but it’s all the more impressive when they’re great.
    Let the music speak: This Facebook video of Calle Sol singing “Suit and Tie” by Justin Timberlake proves they’ll be ready for the themed outfits The Sing-Off is so fond of. And the word on the street is: They dance!

    Twitter: @ElementVocals
    Self-described: “Singing our way around NYC. We also love brunch.” Ha!
    First Glance: Oh, these 10 ladies have head shots and an IMDb page, you just know it. Not that that’s a bad thing. Like Delilah before them, they’re professionals with a sisterly bond and an eye for sparkly fashion.
    Let the music speak: No videos to speak of, so I guess they’re keeping the mystery alive. I choose to base all of my assumptions on this picture.

    The Filharmonic
    Twitter: @TheFilharmonic
    Self-described: “All Filipino. All acapella.”
    First Glance: Great name. These six Filipino guys seem very promising on the vocal front. Will they have enough bass and percussion for a big sound? I sure hope so because they’ve got a fun vibe, like they’re buddies who have been together a long time.
    Let the music speak: The 20/20 experience is really making it’s way around the a cappella world. Check out a preview of JT’s “Pusher Love Girl”

    Twitter: @PtnFootnotes
    Self-described: “Fresh all-male a cappella since 1959.”
    First Glance: They’ve got this history and the education, but those Ivy League boys tend to be always the bridesmaid, never the bride on The Sing-Off. The bios on their website suggest they might have the personalities to take it all the way. Highlight: “Casey hopes to one day strike a deal with the devil for a life supply of churros.”
    Let the music speak: Consider me charmed by this Footnotes original written in 1962, “All I Ask for Is You.”

    Home Free
    Twitter: @homefreeguys
    Self-described: “The world’s first country vocal band.”
    First Glance: I think they might be using that tagline a little loosely, like how Chick-fil-A “invented” the chicken sandwich. But the fact that they were so prominently featured in The Sing-Off promo is likely indicative of big talent. Plus, country fans know how to pick up the phone and vote.
    Let the music speak: Oh, so this is what it looks like to be a traveling a cappella group.

    Street Corner Renaissance
    Twitter: @stcornerdoowop
    Self-described: “Looking forward to the past” (Their Facebook “about” is quite lengthy, but I’m impressed with this more mature crew’s online presence — almost 300,000 YouTube views!)
    First Glance: Not to be confused with season 2 runner-up Street Corner Symphony, EW got an EXCLUSIVE tip on what to look forward to from SCR: Their performance of One Direction’s “That’s What Makes You Beautiful” so overwhelms one judge with emotion that he rushes the stage for hugs. There’s a clear “Boyz II Men”/boys-to-men joke here that I don’t know how to make.
    Let the music speak: Stone cold professionals.

    Twitter: @OfficiallyTen
    Self-described: “TEN — Innovative in inception, Organic in creation, Masterful in delivery!”
    First Glance: Ah, yes, the quintessential group of professional singers, together for one purpose: to compete in The Sing-Off. They’re like one of those groups that Simon Cowell puts together on The X Factor; I’m hoping they’re more One Direction/Fifth Harmony than, say, inTENsity (if you don’t know who I’m talking about, well…that’s what I’m talking about).
    Let the music speak: No music to speak of, but you can at least see TEN in the image up top.

    Vocal Rush
    Twitter: @OsaVocalRush
    Self-described: “Renowned a cappella group from Oakland School for the Arts.”
    First Glance: My mind is in a FameGleeFameGleeFameGlee frenzy right now. The Sing-Off will always try to cast some young group as “the real-life Glee,” but oh man, these art school kids might just have it. And they’ve got an award-winning female vocal percussionist!
    Let the music speak: I watched all 12 minutes.

    Twitter: @thevoiceplay
    Self-described: “Original. Imaginative. Ridiculous. Origimagidiculous.”
    First Glance: These guys knew a good thing when they saw it: The five already-slick and well-balanced guys of Voice Play realized they needed a stellar female voice and added Honey LaRochelle (which is a human, not, like, a fancy lotion).
    Let the music speak: The only video of the newly updated group dynamic shows major potential on “Get Lucky” by Daft Punk.

    Eto na pala yung mga contestants for season 4
    Since may all Pinoy group dito, mukhang dadami ang fans ng show dito. :glee:
    I cannot embed the vidoe, check nyo na lang yung source
  • As a new addition to the season, at the end of every show, the bottom two groups decided by the judges will face off in an "Ultimate Sing Off", with each group singing the same song trying to eliminate their opponent.

    Interesting... It's a battle like America's Best Dance Crew.
  • The Filharmonic

    Pusher Love Girl

    Fine China
  • Ooh.. I'm glad they brought this back! I only started watching this when they showed reruns on Velvet. :glee:

    But I got hooked and loved Delilah and Pentatonix so I will most definitely be tuning in for the new season. *okay*
  • caitdawncaitdawn Clay Court Specialist
    Wala pa akong nakikitang links. :depressed: :lol:
  • honey4evrhoney4evr PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    ^ glad i stay tuned to NBC after the voice last night. another music fix for me. yey! :bounce:

    :love: filharmonic and home free! early faves. konti lang sila pareho pero galing ng blending. *okay*
  • honey4evrhoney4evr PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    surprisingly, the judges are hitting it off greatly. i like the wit of jewel. plus she's really pretty so no qualms with me. love all of them. this is my geeky/nerdy music fix going forward. the voice is the sexier, mature version but sing-off is just pure, unadulterated talent showcase. bakit ba di ko to napanood before. :bop:
  • FilHarmonic represents :D:D

    I like HomeFree, VocalRush and Street Corner Renaissance also

    Ganda ni Jewel parang Katniss Everdeen lang :)

    Sayang ang Princeton Footnotes mas may personality ang grupo nila kesa sa Voiceplay though mas magagaling ang singers nila

    I posted the ***** already! :D

    Dang, Filharmonic is SICK!!! :handsdown:

    I don't like the girl's voice of VoicePlay. Yes, she has a unique tone but it doesn't harmonize all that well thus VoicePlay's harmonies sound broken.

    BTW, use a headset when you watch the show! You can hear all the voices more clearly!
