Committed wins “The Sing-Off”



Committed performs on “The Sing-Off.”

Committed beat Nashville’s Street Corner Symphony tonight to win “The Sing-Off.”

The results were announced live during tonight’s season finale of the NBC reality competition. The winning group receives $100,000 and a Sony recording contract.

California groups Jerry Lawson and Talk of the Town and the Backbeats tied for third, having been eliminated earlier in the show.

The sextet closed out the evening with Queen’s “We Are the Champions.”

Committed, the a cappella group from Huntsville and Oakwood University, had started taping episodes back in August, surviving four rounds of eliminations by the celebrity judges.

On the show tonight, the group performed “Motownphilly” with judge Shawn Stockman’s group, Boyz II Men, among other songs.

Committed sang “Hold My Hand” by Michael Jackson and Akon before receiving the judges’ final evaluation. Alternative rocker Ben Folds said, “How can you be such nice guys and be that good? You’re really amazing. A total joy and inspiration to listen to.”

Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger said, while in tears, “I was really moved by that song. You have a very specific message, of a deep love in life, and the world is craving that right now.” Stockman said, “There’s no way you could have not made it to this point. You guys are awesome.”
