First, the important The Sing-Off
news: The Tufts Beelzebubs
are still in it!
Also, this review from Entertainment Weekly
about the show had me cackling my head off. My favorite bit?
A couple of the acts — Voices of Lee; Noteworthy — made such a point of emphasizing their religiosity in their taped introductions, I wondered when one of them was going to realize that one of their opponents was a bunch called the Beelzebubs. Beelzebub. As in demon. As in Satan. Don’t let those nice blazers the Bubs wore fool you, kids! E-e-e-e-k! Run for your lives!
I was pretty much thinking the same thing last night.
So, tonight, the remaining six groups had to pick one hit, and had to pick one cheesy song (the "guilty pleasure" song).
With one small exception, I agreed with the judges pretty much down the line. And it's only a small exception because I thought the group in question should've been ranked one notch higher, but since they're still in it, it's not a big deal.( Cut for spoilers and my unvarnished opinionCollapse )
So, there's my unvarnished opinion.
Overall, I'm rather pleased. My favorite groups look good going into the final night of competition this week, and one of the groups I really wanted to see gone is gone. The fact that they're gone is made all the sweeter by the nasty attitude they copped on the way out the door.
I also want to add: Ben Folds is adorkable and my favorite reality show judge ever. Shawn Stockman really brings humor and musical knowledge to the table that makes me want to fangirl him. Nicole Scherzinger is basically...the nice one. I think she's kind of in over her head here.
