Sing-Off winner announced tonight!

Tonight from 8 to 10:30 PM, the winners of the second season of the Sing-Off will air on NBC (Channel 4 or 1020 HD here in Orlando on Brighthouse Cable). It will no doubt be a stellar show and one for the books. The winner will receive $100,000 and a SONY Recording contract.

Each of the three judges, pianist singer/songwriter Ben Folds, singer Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men, and performer Nicole Scherzinger of the Pussycat Dolls will perform with one of the four final groups still in contention for the grand prize: Jerry Lawson and Talk of the Town from Oakland, CA (although Jerry himself grew up right here in Apopka, FL); The Backbeats from Los Angeles, CA; Street Corner Symphony from Nashville, TN; and Committed from Huntsville, AL.

The show is hosted by Nick Lachey of 98 Degrees. Since there are now four groups and only three judges, I am curious if he will also perform with one of them.

Who should win? I honestly feel Committed did the best job and is the most marketable.

However, after polling most of my friends, it was clear that there is almost a tie between Street Corner Symphony and Committed. Perhaps six young men is the magic number. However, I must admit that I feel a fondness in my heart for Jerry Lawson, being from right here in Central Florida. Although The Backbeats were great as individuals, they did not seem as cohesive as the other three groups. I don't see them staying together and imagine that shortly after the show, they will dissolve and reform with a more original name (ever try Googling Backbeats?) and with a slightly different cast of characters.

Good luck to all of the groups!
