The second season of The Sing-Off continued on NBC Wednesday night with the remaining groups singing superstar medleys and judges’ picks.
The show started with the five remaining groups singing the opening number With a Little Help From My Friends by The Beatles.
First, the groups sang superstar medleys:
* On The Rocks – Elton John
* Committed – Usher
* The Backbeats – Lady Gaga
* Street Corner Symphony – The Beatles
* Jerry Lawson and Talk of the Town – Otis Redding
Then, Nick Lachey announced that On The Rocks would be heading home. When Lachey asked On The Rocks’ leader if he had any last words, he cleverly replied, “Well Nick, throughout this competition we’ve outwardly grown from Boys II Men. I think we’ve show the nation that were not just a bunch of Pussycats anymore. I’m just really proud that we haven’t Ben Fold-ing under the pressure. I wish that the judges would just give us one more night, ‘Uno Noche.’”
Next, the final four groups sang songs the judges chose for them:
* Committed – Let’s Stay Together by Al Greene
* The Backbeats – Landslide by Fleetwood
* Street Corner Symphony – Down on the Corner by Credence Clearwater Revival
* Jerry Lawson and Talk of the Town – House of the Rising Sun by The Animals
Nick Lachey was then supposed to reveal which three groups were moving on to the finals – but there was a twist. The judges, Ben Folds, Nicole Scherzinger and Shawn Stockman, felt everyone did such an amazing job that they chose to send all four to the finals and let America decide.
Voting opened immediately after the show ended. You can vote now until 9:00 a.m. EST on Sunday, December 19.
Neil Diamond, Sheryl Crow, Sara Bareilles and Boyz II Men will be special guests on the finale that will air Monday, December 20 at 8/7c on NBC.
