Season 2 of The Sing Off is here, which means so is the constant supply of a cappella puns courtesy of host Nick Lachey. If we learned anything from last night, it’s that musical puns are key to The Sing Off‘s style. Along with cheesy facial expressions. And semi-coordinated sweater ensembles. And firmly defined group roles! But even amongst the ridiculousness, The Sing Off‘s heart is in the right place — it really does focus on the singing, which is why it’s actually a pretty enjoyable couple hours of television.
The night started off on the right note with a hugely exciting group performance of “I’ve Got the Music in Me” that gave us a little taste of the 10 groups competing for the $100,000 prize and Sony recording contract. Pun-Master Lachey introduced our three returning judges: indie-popster turned a cappella-aficionado, Ben Folds, former Pussycat Dolls’ only lead singer, Nicole Scherzinger, and suddenly un-frumpy “R&B icon,” Shawn Stockman. The theme of the night was signature songs. Each group was asked to sing something that showed off both their musical ability and personal style, and by the end of the night, after two separate eliminations by the judges, only eight groups would remain. Let’s take a look at each performance:
