Sonos did have serious pitch problems. That arrangement did nothing for me, and I guess the judges, too.
Ah, FSU! Where thread drift comes to play.
I thought they had fewer pitch problems than a lot of the groups - especially the all-girl group that wore the yellow dresses and sang a Supremes song. They were horrible!
I did agree with the judge (Sara?) who said they wanted the lead to go further in the longing of the arrangement.
Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?
A: Competition forums on the board are available to those with a Season Pass or a premium membership How to View Kiss & Cry
I am sad. I will miss North Shore. If only they had switched their song a day earlier to give them more time to prepare the song they eventually ended up using.
Plus they (North Shore) really couldn't compete with the others as far as originality goes. Thought they were good but nothing that amazing. All 8 teams that are left deserve to be there and have had some really cool and fantastic performances. The cuts are going to be really tough next week and from there on out.
Oh, I didn't expect them to win the thing, but I would have liked them to stay on a couple more weeks. I liked them more than Delilah. Right now I expect Delilah and one of the college groups to be the next to go. Not because any of the college groups are bad. It's just that, with 3 of them, the judges are going to want to keep more variety.
Delilah was so amazing when they did Grenade and Whataya Want From Me. Heatwave was kinda silly and last night's What A Feeling was pretty good. I think they are a bit inconsistent but if they have Amy on lead on the right song, its gold.
I think The Collective was the right boot last night. Combo of not gelling and not being there for the right reasons. Yellow Jackets or Vocal Point go next, unless they can perform a miracle and out sing the Aires. Looks like it will be an Aires, Pentatonix final if everyone keeps doing what they've been doing.

Pentatonix has definitely been amazing, but then I'm always a sucker for a good bass. I guess that's why I have trouble with the all-girl groups - there's just no way to get that deep bass I love so well. That's what I loved about North Shore as well.
I agree it was The Collective's time to go and that most likely a college group will go next.
My two faves are Afro Blue and Pentatonix. I like Delilah but I'm tired of them turning every song into a power ballad.
I'm rooting for Pentatonix.
I liked the actual sing-off, but hip hop week left me kind of meh for most of the songs.
Anyone watching? Tonite's theme is superstar medlies, and I'm loving it so far. One group will get the boot this week. At this point, my prediction and preference is that it will be Vocal Point.
btw-completely agree with centerstage01's last post.
I'm watching I loved Delilah's just now. The last 3 have been great. Pentatonics....Dartmouth whatevers, and Delilah. Loved all 3.
Bummed the Yellow Jackets are leaving. I liked them .
missed the jackets performance because I flipped to the trainwreck known as dwts. I've always liked them too. vocal point continues to survive by simply staying under the radar.
This was the first week I liked Delilah. The Dartmouth guys are great. Pentatonix really fills things out well with only five voices.
And Ben Folds reminds me of the snowboarder on the Amazing Race.
There are only two shows with judges that I actually LIKE listening to the critiques - The Voice and The Sing-Off.
