    Anyone watch this?

    I sang acapella in college and then semi-professionally. Big fan of the genre and the show. In each of the past seasons I've accurately predicted the eventual winner on the 1st night.

    This year, I predicted the bottom group in each half accurately and the one bumped off.

    My money is on Home Free, the all male country group. Sorry if I needed a spoiler alert :wink:

    None of the groups this year come close to last time's winner Pentatonix, whose success is the main reason the show was brought back

    I watched the first show on Monday and was underwhelmed by the groups. None of them are even in the same galaxy as Pentatonix, but then PTX is so good it's amazing. That much sound from just five people....unreal.

    This is the best competition "reality" show on TV! They need to get rid of a lot of the fluff that these other shows have and not have it 3 times a week for 2 hours each, but its a great show.

    Ben Folds is excellent as a judge (funny and smart) and the addition of Jewel was a great move. She brings a lot of knowledge to the table and also is really sexy.

    I have watched all 3 seasons so far and I am glad they are back.

    I think the country boys from Minn and the Fillharmonics are the front runners.

    watching on DVR, but VoicePlay really just brought it like woah and could go from bottom 2 all the way to the finals if they do it as well as they just did everytime. They need to make sure not to be too reliant on the one girl.

    Home Free is head and shoulders above the rest. Fillharmonic has a small chance.

    I like the battle style at the end. Its great, but they shouldnt use it to determine who moves on. The judges already know. They should just have it be part of the show.

    Also, they need to bring back the swan song. I thought that was pretty cool.

    They really aren't using the battle at the end as the only determining factor. None of the "battle winners" was a group that wasn't the better overall choice to move on.

    Watched for the first time this week. Interesting that with all the technology and studio-tized music, that they are pulling off a show exclusively around a capella groups. I agree that Home Free is the best group. The bass and tenor are just sick. The dude with the beard is a grad of the university in which I work. It seems like the showbiz aspect is dictating that this Vocal Rush group hang around, even though I think they're about at the bottom of the last six.

    Home Free is my pick, I love the guy that does Bass and the lead singer. Those guys could do a country duo group.

    I wish VoicePlay didn't put that one girl out in front of every song, because they had the most background talent, but she pulled them down. Home Free is a professional group and you can just tell.

    Not bottom six for me but don't think they have earned top 3, but no chance they win so no worries.

    A capella is the truth. If you don't listen to alot of it but are interested now, make sure to check out
    Hyannis Sound
    The House Jacks
    and the godfathers---Rockapella (the original group)

    Home Free Did really well on Colder weather, I was pleasantly surprised at Rob(bearded guy). I think Home Free wins next Monday. How are they picking the winner?

    Wow. Big mistake by the judges for letting Filharmonic go. They are the only group that can compete with Home Free, who is head and shoulders above everyone else. The Finale is a going to be a landslide. I would pay to see those guys in concert and I'm not a big country fan.

    Yeah, Home Free is really good. I loved Colder weather, but my fav of the season was Ring of Fire.

    If you haven't seen Pentatonix's latest work, their "Little Drummer Boy" is pretty spectacular IMO:



    I had never watched The Sing Off, but a friend posted the above on Facebook, and I've listened to it probably 100 times in the last few weeks. That caused me to seek out more of their work on YouTube, and is why I opened this thread. Carry on… :)
