'The Sing-Off' Finale: And the Winner Is... (VIDEO)

'The Sing-Off'After their longest season yet, it was down to a college a cappella group, a hip hop group and a group creating an electronic dance club sound on the season finale of 'The Sing-Off' (Mon., 8PM ET on NBC). It was amazing watching these three powerhouse groups through the season.


The Dartmouth Aires soared under the powerful lead vocals of Michael, while it took Urban Method a little while to find their strengths beyond their rap niche. Pentatonix struggled a bit with deciding how far to take their signature remixes. But all three groups excelled and impressed week after week.

In the finale, Urban Method was the first group sent packing, which lined up perfectly with our own informal poll conducted last week. Only 5.2% of you thought Urban Method should win. In fact, you got it completely right.

With 77.3% of your votes, Pentatonix won our poll, and then they turned around and won 'The Sing-Off.' It's impossible to argue this victory, as they blew us away with what they could accomplish with only five voices. They truly can take a cappella into "the future," as Ben Folds said.

But don't be said just yet, as 'The Sing-Off' has one more week in them. Next week, in the same time slot, we get 'The Sing-Off Christmas,' featuring the best groups from all three seasons of the unique series.

He mentioned on Twitter that he had to fly in from Asia and literally go straight to the Sing-Off for the finale, so I'm guessing that's why. No time to rehearse! It's too bad though, I really would have liked to hear him sing.

There's one thing I don't get about last night's show. Nick Lachey sang with Pentatonix. Sarah sang with Urban Method, and Ben Folds sang with the Airs. Then Smokey Robinson sang with Afroblue. It just seems interesting that Shawn Stockman didn't sing with anybody last night. It kinda looks like he was snubbing the acts by not being willing to share the stage with any of them. Listening to him talk, he didn't sound sick. I'm just wondering why he sat that out when everybody else didn't.
