The Sing-Off 16 Revealed: Who's Back for More?

NBC has announced the 16 a cappella groups that will be competing on The Sing-Off, which returns for its third season on Monday, Sept. 19, at 8/7c and will now air two hours at a pop. Do you spy any hometown favorites?

Former 98 Degrees boy bander Nick Lachey will once again serve as host, while this year’s panel of celebrity judges will be populated by Sara Bareilles, Ben Folds and Shawn Stockman.

Here now, the 16 groups — including a few familiar faces looking to take another crack at the championship. (Editor’s note: Keep your sunglasses handy for when The (very) Yellowjackets pop up in Slide 3.)

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    I liked the December 5/6 week format! It was great when all shows are in repeats and this simple show was on. I hope it is a quick season, since it will get killed by Simon Cowell and the X Factor in the same category.

    • Dwayne says:

      I doubt it will get killed by X Factor. I think it will succeed as it normally does because there is no music competition on TV now like it. With the expanded season, we get to see more groups showcased and get to see them tackle different challenges. It will be a blast!!

    They could post that picture of Nick Lachey on a robot and have it host the show. No one could tell the difference.
    I’m definitely watching this season for Sara B.! She’s so funny on Twitter and in concert. Hopefully she’ll bring more of that to her judging than she did with her cookie-cutter sophomore album.

    The Darmouth Aires is a terrific group…love them!

    While I don’t see The Sing Off surpassing The X-Factor in ratings, there’s enough of a niche market of a cappella lovers for it to stick around. I just hope the new 2 hour format doesn’t mean extra slow zooms, overly suspenseful music, and drawn out judges’ decision interrupted by even more commercial breaks (such as Biggest Loser and Minute to Win It). Sara B. should be better than Nicole S. whose feedback was about as helpful as Randy’s (“You did your thing dawg”). If so, the Sing Off will out-judge Idol and X-Factor. Go Deltones! dftg

    love it! i am glad it’s coming back, but i think i will miss the christmas/holiday feel of the show

  21. Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it
    was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m
    thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an
    aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for newbie blog writers? I’d
    certainly appreciate it.

    Link exchange is nothing else but it is just placing the
    other person’s weblog link on your page at proper place and other person will also do similar in favor of you.
