Erin and I have been discussing the episode and you can expect our write ups before the holiday. But before we put them up I need to put up what seems like a gratuitous tweet. Nick Lachey: ‏(@NickLachey) {(post)} I want to thank all 10 groups for making this season of #singoff the most fun yet!! [...]

A few thoughts going into Monday’s Sing-Off Season 4 Finale (this is being written before Monday’s show and does not take into account any of Monday’s performances). Each of the three groups left has a different strength. Vocal Rush has my heart; Ten has my head; Home Free has my ear. Vocal Rush is full of youthful [...]

We’re coming to the end of the Armchair Director (and Judge’s) posts on the Sing Off for 2013. The ratings seem to indicate that this will definitely be back for next season. Hopefully, they can find a way to put it on the schedule more than once in a year. granted, I’m a very greedy [...]

Episode 6 - “Judges’ Choice” The groups still in the game – Home Free, Ten, Vocal Rush, and The Filharmonic. Home Free – five men in their twenties, super-tight harmonies, clear tenor lead with the occasional toss to the uber-bass. Lots of performing experience at festivals. They consider themselves “country a cappella” but they are proving [...]

My quick rundown on the three Ultimate Sing-Off match-ups from Episode 5 AcoUstKats vs VoicePlay – “Eye Of The Tiger” Well, it was very entertaining. They were totally transparent about this being pre-staged this time. The show seemed to be trying to keep that secret up to this point. Acoustikats lead lost control of the [...]

I would like to thank Andrei for the invitation to join him in blogging the Sing-off. He sets a very high bar so I hope I do not disappoint. Episode 5 – Part 1 Opening number – Time Of My Life I could have done an entire entry just on the pairings of the leads, [...]

Jut a really quick post that my review of Episode 6 will be up later today. But! Before then… I want to welcome Armchair Judge Erin to the blog who will also be putting up comments and reviews as well. I’ll let Erin do up a little bio post; assuming I haven’t terrified her with [...]

Down to the final 4. In 2 hours on the east coast we’ll have our final 3 for Monday’s 2 hour gala. (I hope this year that NBC doesn’t decide to edit out what the charities actually do. To this day we support the Trevor Project and their support for bullied gay children.) I’m not [...]

Good gravy, this was a full episode. So, to recap; with six groups having done their main performance of the night we were moving into the TUSO! (Triple Ultimate Sing Off) The groups would be paired off for an Ultimate battle and then their individual performances would be factored into the decisions. My rankings as [...]

And before we kick of Part two of episode five… Here’s a link to a video of Pentatonix doing their (now 29 song) Beyonce medley at ABC News. When we last left out intrepid band of mighty adventurers… Wait, wrong series… 3 groups up and 3 to go. Let’s get back to it! The first [...]

Wednesday’s show was a mixed bag for me. In my pre-show reasoning my odd’s were mixed between very right and very wrong but my reasons behind the odds seemed sound. On top of that things I disliked and liked got mixed around as well. It was a long episode chocked full of great music and [...]

The main post will come by about 11am Eastern time tomorrow. It was two hours with a lot to talk about. I also took down about 50 quotations from twitter. Everyone will get attribution. All I want to say is that I love when my pre-show guesses are wrong. I’ll break down how I felt, [...]

Let me start this review by saying that my pre-show guesses were off, but I am happy for why. We’ll come back to my pre-show calls later. I should note: I do like all four of this episode’s group. I will sadly make this comment many times through this analysis. Episode 4: My Generation. Which [...]

Well, kids… Episode 4 is just minutes away. So here comes the whirlwind pre-analysis of the song names and groups but without listening. Tonight’s episode is “My Generation” – This theme could mean any number of things, but with the lineup being a Country, High School, Techno, and All-Female… This could go in a lot [...]

First off, I’m thrilled for a shorter episode. The reviews on a long episode are fairly well, long. Also, finally caught up after the absolute drugging I had on Thursday. My next medical drugging is in January, so we should be good for the rest of this short season. Starting this weekend, I’ll be posting [...]

Coming back strong after some nice holiday ratings; it seems The Sing Off is off and rolling. This season we are watching 10 respectable groups try to avoid elimination It’s a very wide selection of groups: Country, Classic, DooWop, All Female, BoyBand, Gospel, Collegiate, Latin, etc. I on the other hand am coming down from [...]

Having been heavily drugged since 9am this morning I am slowly regaining my faculties. I have transcribed my notes from Vocal Rush, Home Free, Voice Play and am in progress on SCR from last night. Fortunately, tonight is a short episode with only 4 groups (I am assuming) So I should be able to get [...]

I just had a quick look at the song choices by the group. Now I haven’t listened to their versions and don’t know how they will perform. This is simply a pre-evaluation based on my knowledge of the originals and my knowledge of the groups as seen so far. Below are what I consider Good, [...]
