DARTMOUTH AIRES
Dartmouth College’s oldest a cappella group, is currently made up of 14 fun loving, high-energy guys with eclectic tastes and no shortage of quirky antics. @DartmouthAires

DELILAH
This all-female a cappella group, which includes members from the first two seasons of the series, has been singing across the country, but still carry an unfulfilled desire to conquer “The Sing-Off” stage. @SingDelilah

THE DELTONES
Founded in 1991, The University of Delaware Deltones, pride themselves on their smooth tunes and their motto – friends first, singers second. They focus their energy towards singing on campus and in the Delaware community, as it is important for them to give back to those who support them. @ilovedeltones

FANNIN FAMILY

KINFOLK 9
A nine-piece professional vocal group from Los Angeles in which everyone can sing lead, with all members coming from very strong musical backgrounds. @Kinfolk9

MESSIAH’S MEN
Originally from Africa, these unofficial brothers survived the war in Liberia through the power of song and are on a mission to sing their hearts out while serving the Lord.

PENTATONIX

SONOS
Formed in 2006 as a recording project that grew into a vocal band, the group blends their voices together in perfect harmony through years of experience. The live electronic effects they are also known for will not be part of the competition. @SonoSings

SOUL’D OUT
This award-winning mixed a cappella group from Wilsonville High School is comprised of students from all grade levels, musical backgrounds and vocal types.

URBAN METHOD
The group, which includes a rapper, was formed by eight musicians whose individual sounds gravitate toward urban music. Each has extensive studio session work but has never previously performed together. @Urban Method

VOCAL POINT
The all-male group is Brigham Young University’s premiere contemporary a cappella ensemble. Their nine-man vocal firepower continually invigorates audiences and entertains fans with inventive arrangements, humor and remarkable vocal percussion. @BYUVocalPoint

THE YELLOWJACKETS
Formed in 1956, the University of Rochester YellowJackets are anything but old-fashioned and half the members are enrolled in The Eastman School of Music at the university. This fun loving group’s mark of distinction is their bright yellow blazers and distinctive sound. @URYellowJackets
