A Cappella Performances

While theBestArts has featured a cappella performances for years, it wasn't until 2012 that we decided to create a dedicated section for the genre on the site. We hope to build the section quickly. Please help us by nominating groups or performances for the site.

NBC's "The Sing Off"

NBC's "The Sing-Off" is a unique competition series that highlights the talents of America's best a cappella vocal groups. After skipping a year, the show returned for a ten group, seven episode mini-season in December 2013.

The Sing-Off - 2013: Groups and sing-offs

 

Season three of The Sing-Off was held in the fall of 2011 in a weekly format with two-hour episodes. Pentatonix won the competition and has perhaps become the world's most famous and successful a cappella group.
