the sing off recapThe Sing-Off Season 2 aired night two of it’s a cappella competition last night.

Nick Lachey returned last night as the host of The Sing-Off. Monday, we saw two out of the ten a cappella groups sent home and last night the remaining eight battled to stay alive. For round 2 of The Sing Off Season 2 the groups were tasked to perform a chart topping hit. Let’s take a quick look at how each of the remaining teams did.

Here is the complete rundown of how the a cappella groups of The Sing Off did for round 2 last night:

On the Rocks kicked off the show with their rendition of “Live Your Life” by TI and I was not impressed. The judges said good things about the performance but to me it was absolutely terrible. Next to take The Sing Off stage last night was Street Corner Symphony who took on “Hey, Soul Sister” by Train. The group took a whole different route to this song and I think they performed an excellent rendition. Of course all three judges agreed and loved it.

The Sing Off chart topping hits episode continued with Eleventh Hour performing “Just The Way You Are” by Bruno Mars. Personally, trying to cover Bruno Mars is a pretty tough feat in itself as the guy has an amazing voice. I really didn’t care for the performance and I am not sure the judges did either. Jerry Lawson & Talk of the Town were next up with a performance of “Mercy” by Duffy. These old dudes were dressed like they were going to a funeral and its good because their performance felt pretty dead to me. I am pretty sure I dozed off while watching them.

Once the old guys got off the stage, Nick Lachey announced that one of the first four groups would be going home. The third team eliminated from The Sing Off was Eleventh Hour. After their performance last night I agree with sending them home.

After the first elimination of the night, The Backbeats took to the stage to perform “Breakeven” by Script. While the judges praise the lead singer, I think she sounds god awful. Not sure what in the hell they are listening to but she sounds like a man! Next up on The Sing Off were Committed, singing “Apologize” by One Republic. I really liked their performance as the gospel group proved that can tackle pop songs.

The final two performances of the night would be The Wiffenpoofs singing “Just Haven’t Met You Yet” by Michael Buble and Groove For Thought singing “Cooler Than Me” by Mike Posner. To me Groove For Thought knocked it out of the park and had the best performance of the night. Following them as the final act of last night’s episode of The Sing Off were The Wiffenpoofs. I can’t stand them at all and did not like their performance one bit.

Nick Lachey had the final four teams of round 2 take the stage as he let them know which one was eliminated. The 4th team voted off of The Sing Off was The Wiffenpoofs.

The Sing Off will return next Monday night at 8|7c on NBC.
