On tonight’s episode of NBC’s singing competition, The Sing-Off, the top five groups perform classic R&B songs along with contemporary R&B hits. The show began with all six groups coming together on stage to sing a medley of R&B hits from the past through today. On tonight’s episode, the groups will sing two R&B songs, one modern song and one classic tune. Keep reading to find which group is eliminated when the music stops!

The reality singing competition showcases a variety of groups all vying for a $200,000 prize and a Sony Music recording contract. Host, Nick Lachey announced that the top five groups will be singing tonight and the judges will vote off one of the singing ensembles. The three expert judges critiquing the singers and offering advice are all from the music industry: Ben Folds, Shawn Stockman and Sara Bareilles.

First up from Hanover, N.H. was Dartmouth Aires. They are Dartmouth College’s oldest a cappella group. They’re made up 15 fun loving, high energy guys. For their current R&B hit they chose to sing the remix of R. Kelly’s “Ignition.” The judges said the group gave a charming and strategic performance. Later, for their classic R&B song they sang “Midnight Train To Georgia.” The judges said they gave a beautiful and wonderful performance.

Urban Method from Denver, CO sang Keri Hilson’s “Knock You Down” for their modern R&B hit. The judges said they are very proud of the group and said their performance was great. Later for their classic song they sang “It’s Your Thing.” The judges said the group’s performance was very strong and left the audience wanting more.


The all-male a cappella group, Vocal Point from Provo, UT sang “Every Little Step You Take” as their R&B hit. The judges said they were very impressed with the group’s performance especially since they made the song their own. Later, for their classic R&B song they sang “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg.” The judges said the group’s performance was good but it felt like they were a beat behind and a little disjointed.

From Howard University in Washington, D.C., the fun-loving Jazz/Pop a cappella ensemble Afro-Blue sang “We Belong Together.” The judges said the group’s performance was fantastic because it reflected their emotions. Later, they sang “Best Of My Love” as their classic R&B song. The judges said their performance was good.

Pentatonix from Arlington, Texas, a five member group that has a modern style and draws influences from several eclectic electro genres decided to sing “OMG” for their current R&B song. The judges said their performance was great especially how they arrange their songs. Later, they chose “Let’s Get It On” as their classic R&B song. The judges said the group’s performance was incredible.

The judges deliberated and eliminated Vocal Point from the competition. Before going home, they sang “Home” as their farewell song.
