The Sing-Off closed on a high note, naming a cappella group, Committed, winners of a spectacularly in tune season two!
Nobody really knew what to expect from the sophomore season of The Sing-Off, but as the finale went down with amazing performances from the final four, the Backbeats, Committed, Jerry Lawson & the Talk of the Town and Street Corner Symphony, one thing was clear — a cappella kicks major music butt! Let’s see how the finale played out!
Jerry Lawson and the Talk of the Town got to team up with judge Nicole Scherzinger for a stellar performance of Ain’t No Mountain High Enough and superstar Sheryl Crow for the little ditty Long Road Home but it wasn’t enough to advance them to the top three. The Backbeats were unfortunately the next group to get the axe from the stage, which was a total low note because they were a young and talented force to be reckoned with.
The moment of truth came down to a sing-off, pun completely intended as were the other 100, between Southern-influenced Street Corner Symphony and the big voices of Committed. Street Corner Symphony paired up with judge Ben Folds for a rousing take on Gone. Committed went old school with a little Motown Philly mixing it up with judge Shawn Stockman and Boyz II Men. On a complete side note, can we petition for Boyz II Men to go on the road with NKOTB and the BSB this summer as part of our Christmas wish list? We swear we’ve been good this year, Santa!
Back to the competition. In the end, there could only be one winner as both groups showcased their talents with Ain’t No Sunshine on stage with Neil Diamond. Finally, host Nick Lachey announced that Committed edged out the competition to win the $100,000 cash prize and title of The Sing-Off champs!
