In anticipation of next week's live finale, the phone lines opened for the first and last time on this longest-ever season of 'The Sing-Off' (Mon., 9PM ET on NBC). But before fans could decide who should win this season, the competition had to lose one final act.
It was a brutal night to be facing elimination, so close to the final, and you could see nerves throughout the evening as no one had a flawless night. Nevertheless, the judges based their decisions on what we've seen all season long, including tonight's double bill of a mastermix combining two songs and a judges' choice song.
For this viewer, it's always been a showdown between the hip-hop-appella of Urban Method and the club remix innovation of Pentatonix. It was just a question of who was going to get there with them. Afro-Blue has been up and down all season, but their sound is exciting and classic. Meanwhile, the Dartmouth Aires really only have two leads, but Michael is a superstar in the making.
He was on fire again this week in both numbers, while Afro-Blue fumbled with their mastermix of Nicki Minaj's 'Fly' and R. Kelly's 'I Believe I Can Fly.' For Michael alone, I would have put the Dartmouth Aires in the finals, and they did make it there. So now it's down to America to decide who should win 'The Sing-Off.'
|Dartmouth Aires||54 (17.5%)|
|Urban Method||16 (5.2%)|
