Finally!! A singing competition show 4 the best genre - a capella.
25 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews


  • The judges are actual, tried & tested, vocal music pros.

  • The groups are exactly that, groups. There's a sweetness and a

genuineness in watching a group do their thing!

  • People keep saying it's a spin off of Glee + Idol. Well, I see it as

the best of both shows without the weird "drama".

  • This is music competition at it's best; just vocals, no hired session

instrumentalists, no stoned judges playing "good cop - bad cop", no irky* chest hair... I respect that there's an audience for all that but if you just wanna see guys sing their butts off, this is it!

  • The show's season is not too long or too short - I think there's

about 10-12 two hour episodes per season. Brilliant!!


  • I think voting should start slightly earlier - the final 4 or 5

group. AfroBlue should not have left the show this season (2011). They were not the best but I think they were better that 2 of the 3 finalists. That's just me. If voting had started earlier, they would still be on.
