'The Sing-Off': Voices of Lee get second chance and Maxx Factor learns new tricks Episode 2

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.

'The Sing-Off' premiere: All the drama of 'Glee' (and then some) Episode 1

I was pretty convinced that "The Sing-Off" was going to be "Glee" without the drama. Boy, was I wrong. This is what I learned: A capella groups have some serious bad luck, age is just a number and perfect singing just isn't enough in the competitive world of "The Sing-Off." In his introduction, host Nick Lachey says that the only thing the groups have to depend on is "teamwork, trust and precision." Is he still talking about singing? Also, Nick, this is supposed to be a "feel good event." Why are you dressed like a funeral director? We soon find out. Opening group song: David Bowie's "Under Pressure." I've had a while to ruminate on this, since Zap2it was the first to post the video last week. On first impressions, The SoCals, Nota and Noteworthy are standouts. Solo and Maxx Factor - oy vey. Their sound is all over the place. The soloists bring it, though I worried for Amy, the chick with the gnarly faux hawk from Noteworthy, when she struggled with that really long high note. I think she's probably a great singer, but that isn't her best moment. To Read More Click Here . If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now
