'The Sing-Off': Urban Method, Vocal Point Prove Their Pop Chops

On the third week of head-to-head competition, The Sing-Off took the first six teams to battle on pop hits and sixties classics.

Urban Method came to prove that its rap-a-pella style could hold its own in proper competition. It started off with their rendition of Black Eyed Peas’ "Just Can’t Get Enough." Judge Sarah Bareilles went nuts over their arrangement. For the 60s challenge, the group brought it once again and I was happy to see that they didn’t try to shove rap into a song that predated the art form. They rocked out on Sly & the Family Stone’s "Dance to The Music." Shawn Stockman was beside himself, saying there were "so many goodies" in it. Then Ben Folds called it their best performance yet.

Giving them a run for their money, the Mormons from BYU, Vocal Point. We found out that Ben isn't back as he had planned, since his father passed away. The group started the night with their version of Justin Bieber’s "Never Say Never." I have to say that I was missing the higher notes on that performance and they were all really, really stiff dancers. Shawn poked a little fun at them for taking the song so seriously, but said they still made it fun. Sarah said they were like "wholesome Thundercats." Their 60s song was a bit more their speed and style in my opinion: Frank Sinatra’s"The Way You Look Tonight." Sarah said she was floating and Ben said he felt he was listening to actual big band at times. Read More...
