The second day of competition was a tight race. While Nota and the Beelzebubs continued to deliver on some well-executed performances, we saw weaknesses in The SoCals and Noteworthy. Other groups showed they could adapt to the competition to earn a spot in the third episode of "The Sing-Off" tonight.
Group 1: Beelzebubs (Boston, Massachusetts)
Hit song: "Right Round" by Flo Rida
I'm not at all surprised that the Beelzebubs performed a rap song. All my dorky guy friends love their rap. Plus, if the "Bubs" are going to do rap, then "Right Round" is the perfect rap song for them. Let's face it, it's not exactly "gangsta." I was really impressed by the group's dedication to the song and the work it took to create the a capella dynamic. At times the group's rapper got a bit jumbled with the words and you could hear him gasping for breath, which was distracting. Once again, the choreography was fun, appropriate for the song and each member owned it.
Ben Folds (Ben Folds Five) said the group was "no novelty," since musically, they know what they're doing. He said the solos weren't that strong, though. Nicole Scherzinger (Pussycat Dolls) said she had so much fun and the track was "live." She asked, "Can the 'Bubs' be sexy?" To which the audience screamed. Shawn said they created a new category: "hip-hopella." He went on to say that they "rocked it" and, once again, kept it entertaining.
