"The Sing Off" Returns To NBC--But, yes, Nick Lachey is still the Host

OK, I admit it. I'm a Gleek. I love the show Glee. I was in Choraliers in high school...which would have been our equivalent of the Glee Club. Being in that group also meant we were in A Capella Choir...so it was great to burn two hours of each school day singing random songs...everything from the Beatles to Church Hymns (you could still actually sing those back then in a public school and not get in trouble for it...a lot of them had complicated harmonies!)

So, predictably, when something is hugely successful, other networks try to come up with their own version...a different twist. Glee has spawned NBC's "The Sing Off". This show is a competition between actual "glee clubs" from all over the country. It's first season was semi-successful...It was just a short 3 episodes in the spring. Now, they are giving it another shot this winter, and it looks like the competition is going to be even tougher.

So, the pros to this show are:
Incredibly talented performers
Ben Folds is a judge
This is Glee in real life

However, the cons appear to be:
Nick Lachey is still hosting
The cheesey factor (if not done right)

If you didn't see it last spring, here is my favorite performance of the entire season. It featured all of the groups competing...and they were singing my all time favorite song. Because of this, I will give it a shot this upcoming season.
