'The Sing-Off' eliminates another group after hip-hop week

By
The Collective have become the latest group to leave The Sing-Off.

The group of independent artists from Nashville, Tennessee were eliminated from the NBC a cappella competition after landing in the bottom two alongside the University of Rochester YellowJackets following this week's hip-hop performances.

Both groups had to perform 'Just A Dream' by Nelly as their 'sing-off' track and in the end judges Shawn Stockman and Sara Bareilles chose to send home The Collective.

The Collective had performed 'Give Me Everything' by Pitbull and Ne-Yo and admitted before taking to the stage that they were having to step outside their comfort zone this week.

Stockman said that he liked the fact they had challenged themselves and "done [their] party thing" but added: "There were some spots in the middle where you had the groove then lost it then got it back."

Stockman appreciated that it was a difficult track to sing a cappella and praised them for harmonizing well and adding their own features to the song: "It was nice to see you guys get loose and change the Southern style into some hip-hop."

Bareilles agreed that it was an "ambitious" performance and she enjoyed seeing them trying things they hadn't done before, while Folds said they sang in harmony and nailed the blends, personality and musicality elements of the track, but he needed "more of a rhythm section".

After the sing-off between The Collective and YellowJackets, Stockman chose to keep the YellowJackets and Folds chose to keep The Collective, meaning that Bareilles had the tie-breaker vote.

She chose to send home The Collective but admitted it was a "difficult" decision: "I chose the group I felt took the right risks [to advance] but I love you both."

The Collective member Ruby said: "I think we were absolutely forever changed and this is an interesting position to be in. We've found ourselves in it our whole careers long - the struggle - and I think we live for that.

"We're not going to stop and you're going to hear from each and every one of us for the rest of your lives whether you like it or not!"

They chose to perform 'Knockin' On Heaven's Door' as their swansong.

The other groups remaining in the competition and the songs they sang are: Dartmouth Aires ('Club Can't Handle Me'), Afro-Blue ('Killing Me Softly'), Vocal Point ('I'll Be Missing You'), Urban Method ('Airplanes'), Pentatonix ('Love Lockdown') and Delilah ('How To Love').

The eight groups also came together for a group performance of 'Nothing On You' by Bruno Mars and B.o.B to open the show.

The Sing-Off returns next Monday at 8/7c on NBC
