Season 3 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sing-Off#Season_3:_2011) of The Sing Off (http://www.nbc.com/sing-off/) begins tonight at 8:00 Eastern/7:00 Central on NBC here in the US.

I was elated to hear that one of the many fine a capella groups (http://www.dartmouth.edu/~aires/) from a fabulous school in New Hampshire (http://thedartmouth.com/2011/08/19/arts/aires) will be competing this season. :inavoid: :respec:

Article (http://triblocal.com/winnetka-northfield/2011/09/13/new-trier-grads-find-themselves-competitors-for-nbc-reality-show/) about New Trier High School (Winnetka, Illinois) alums taking part in the Sing Off as part of collegiate a capella groups from Rochester and Dartmouth:

Hart grew up in Kenilworth and started singing with his family’s church choir at the Kenilworth Union Church.

His father went to Dartmouth to study engineering, just like him, but he says he never felt pressured to follow his footsteps.

“I think I’m just a lot like my dad and I think like him,” Hart said.

Long before he stepped on campus, he knew about the Dartmouth Aires. In the mid-1990s, his father returned from a class reunion with a CD of the group, called “Buenos Aires.”

“He’d play it in the living room and I remember listening to it,” Hart said. “I know every single track, every single word. I just loved it so much.”

Now, he’s one of the group members who peddles CDs to alumni at events, he said.

“It’s really the most defining part of my experience at Dartmouth,” Hart said of the Aires.

I love the sing off. Which is opposite DWTS. :wuzrobbed: Thank goodness I have 2 DVRs which can record 2 programs at a time. :D I can snark about DWTS on FSU and then enjoy my time with Ben alone.

^^ Hmm ... so DVR's can record more than one show at a time? I may need to look into that as my 4 VCR''s are all starting to die. I'll be watching DWTS, taping The Sing Off, and taping 2.5 Men as well. :lol:

My newest DirecTV receiver can record two at once. And I can get a 3rd show on my old unit upstairs. :kickass:

Hard night for viewing choices, but I am definitely watching The Sing Off!

I got home late and had neglected to set the DVR for this or DWTS. I can't really decide which to watch so I'm surfing back and forth so far. It's not really working out. I've managed to miss the performances on both and have only seen fluff and judges' commentary.

I'm going back and forth too, but I've managed to see most of both performances. I didn't really care for either group so far.

I saw that big group of siblings. Meh...

If Afro-Blue does Mas Que Nada I might die. Is there a theme tonight?

09-20-2011, 01:43 AM
Afro Blue the best so far

The all girl group that sang Grenade was AMAZING. My favorite, by far.

09-20-2011, 02:02 AM
Delilah doing Grenade was fabulous!

I knew the family would go home out of this group.

I don't think I can safely roll my eyes any more than I have during the Mormon groups introduction.

I don't think I can safely roll my eyes any more than I have during the Mormon groups introduction.

I enjoyed their performance though.

ETA: Where's Ben?

Finally reviewing my DVR recording, and I was :wuzrobbed that I'd only set it for 1 hour instead of 2.

But apparently only 8 of 16 entrants were on this week, with the Aires coming next week. Phew! :drama:
