The Sing Off season 2 contestants are varied, and all undoubtedly talented (we hope.) Do you think you can single out the top three groups out of the ten?
Whiffenpoofs of Yale: New Haven, Conneticut
Trivia: “Comprised of 14 senior Yale men, the “Whiffs” were founded in 1909, and are the world’s oldest collegiate a cappella group.”
First Impression: They may have a funny name, but they sure look dapper!
Jerry Lawson & Talk of The Town: Oakland, California
Trivia: “Jerry Lawson, a member of The Persuasions for 40 years, joined together with Talk of The Town when they were both hired to perform at a wedding in 2001.” They’ve performed with Rod Stewart.
First Impression: If Rod Stewart likes them, they may be some serious contenders.
Committed, Huntsville, Alabama
Trivia: “This all-male group was founded in 2003 by four high school students at Forest Lake Academy.”
First Impression: I don’t like their name, as it reminds me of straight jackets. But I suspect their voices will have me forgetting this first impression.
On the Rocks: Eugene, Oregon
Trivia: “The group has had great viral success with videos featured on various websites, with more than 6.5 million views of their popular rendition of Lady Gaga’s ‘Bad Romance.'”
First Impression: They’ve already got a strong viral campaign, which means they already have a strong fanbase of people who will be willing to vote a lot.
Street Corner Symphony: Nashville Tennesse
Trivia: “Formed in May of 2010, this group of six contains two sets of siblings.”
First Impression: I feel like we’ll either instantly love them or hate them.
Men of Note: Cherry Hill, New Jersey
Trivia: “This all-male group of eight is comprised of Cherry Hill High School West alumni, where the group was first founded.”
First Impression: I instantly feel a liking towards this group.
Groove For Thought: Seattle, Washington
Trivia: “Since the group’s inception in 1998, Groove For Thought brings their unique brand of jazz- and R&B-infused tunes to festival, concert, school and nightclub audiences throughout the United States and abroad.”
First Impression: Finally, I spy a female!
Pitch Slapped: Boston, Massachusetts
Trivia: “Founded in 2006, this group of students from the Berklee College of Music has won numerous International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella awards.”
First Impression: A young Glee-like group!
Eleventh Hour: Kettering, Ohio
Trivia: “Eleventh Hour has opened for LeAnn Rimes, The Beach Boys and sang backup for Kenny Loggins.”
First Impression: They look annoying.
The Backbeats: Los Angeles, California
Trivia: They are, “composed of the best a cappella singers from the University of Southern California and the University of California Los Angeles.”
First Impression: I love their costumes, and their name. Plus, they’re from the very competitive town of L.A. which only lets the cream rise.
