The Sing Off - 2011

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. It returned for Season 3 in the fall of 2011 in a weekly format with two-hour episodes.

The show scours the country in search of the best a cappella groups, ranging in various sizes and ages. In 2011, the competition expanded to the 16 very best groups, who performed popular songs in weekly competitions, and which culminated with a live finale revealing the grand-prize winner. The groups competed for America's vote and a chance to walk away with the ultimate prize - a Sony Music recording contract and $200,000.

There's no lip-synching, back-up bands or safety net. One group was eliminated every week during this one-of-a-kind battle of voices that led up to a live finale - where viewers decided the winner.

Celebrity judges who critique the singing groups using their musical expertise were Ben Folds (Ben Folds Five), Shawn Stockman (Boyz II Men) and Sara Bareilles ("Love Song" and "King of Anything").
