The Aires do have a superstar lead vocalist in Michael (LOVE him) and that might be lacking in Vocal Point. I might have let Afro Blue go this week - I really like it when they do jazz, but the last few weeks have been pretty weak for me (didn't get the love for their country song last week). I think Pentatonix are absolutely fantastic and so creative and will probably win. Don't have a problem with that at all.

    I really love this show because I love a cappella so much. I love to hear singers that you know can sing and don't need to be autotuned!

    I was really sad to see Vocal Point go. I agree that they may not have sold many albums, but they made me smile with every performance and are so dang likeable! I'd have let Afro Blue go, myself. I feel like they, or Urban Method, will be the next ones out. I don't dislike either group, but I feel like they're not on the same level as the others.

    That said, I have a collective crush on the Dartmouth Aires and am really hoping they win the whole thing. Michael is unbelievable. I hope that even if the Aires don't win, he's able to get some job offers out of this. (Of course, if the Aires are all bright enough to go to Dartmouth, I imagine they'll all "make it" in life some way or another.) I wouldn't be upset if it goes to Pentatonix as they are definitely impressive, but I think I prefer the fuller sound of a larger group myself.

    Whilst I’m pulling for Local Son, Michael and the Dartmouth Aires, I have a soft spot for both Afro Blue and Pentatonix. Possibly because they remind me of Manhattan Transfer.

    I'm just glad the Aires have made it this far!

    While Michael is great, I think the group is relying on him too much to lead the way. I think there have been examples (the Queen medley, and how the group backed up Michael in "Midnight Train to Georgia") where the group as a whole can rise up to the occasion and produce some stunning harmonies in true a cappella style. For example, Ben Folds has been giving the bass section some grief, and, to their credit, they take the criticism constructively and come out swinging in the following performance. I'm also loving how some of the other singers in the group are being rotated in and out through solos and getting their moments in the spotlight. Basically, I'm saying that they all have some degree of talent, and that they have it within themselves to challenge each other and do more.

    I would also probably have sent AfroBlue home, even thought I enjoy their style. They just totally lost it on their second song. But the judges probably wanted a little more variety in the final four, so one of the college groups had to go.

    Ah, Manhattan Transfer Possibly my favorite jazz group ever! Afro Blue reminded me of them so much towards the beginning, but not so much in the last few weeks. I'll be happy for whoever wins, cuz I think they're all great.

    Wow. Mitch's voice in "Dog Days are Over" was so gorgeous and enchanting. His pitch was perfect. Couldn't get the cable working so missed the first set of performances. However they performed in the first round, Pentatonix has my votes.

    Whoa. I love me some Aires, I really do, but they made a lot of mistakes last night. Afro Blue was spot on in the sing for your life, Aires not so much.

    Pentatonix for the win.

    I got bored with the show last night and stopped watching. Also they need a drinking game for whenever Sara says "I'm so proud." She's really grating on my nerves lately for some reason.

    Watched the show on DVR. Wrong group sent home. Urban Method should have gone. AfroBlue has more musicality than Method could dream of. Pentatonix should win, as much as I'm pulling for the Aires. And I'd have no problem with that.

    Lunch with more members of the clan tomorrow = seizing more cell phones to VOTE AIRES! And here's a special message from the Aires themselves.

    By the way, Michael Odokara-Okigbo '12 won the "Dartmouth Idol" when he was a freshman in the spring of 2009. And you can meet the rest of the gang here:

    Aires member bios

    The Aires, inside and and outside the classroom

    Why do the Aires love Dartmouth?

    The Aires on their music and friendships

    The Aires pack and head for the airport earlier this week to spend Thanksgiving in LA prepping for the finale

    An interview with the Aires about their experience on the "Sing-Off"

    The Aires' audition video for "The Sing-Off"

    Some recognizable faces from the Aires as they perform a few years ago
