NBC’s sleeper hit “The Sing-Off” announced the Season 2 winner on the finale Monday night.
It came down to these final four: The Backbeats, Committed, Jerry Lawson & the Talk of the Town and Street Corner Symphony, and in the end, it was Southern rockers Street Corner Symphony versus the gospel choir group Committed.
The final “Sing-Off’ featured terrific artistic collaborations: Street Corner Symphony performed “Gone” with judge Ben Folds, and Committed took on “Motown Philly” with judge Shawn Stockman and the rest of Boyz II Men. Then both groups belted out “Ain’t No Sunshine” with singer Neil Diamond.
Then it was time to learn which group garnered the most viewer votes, and there should have been a considerable number of them, since the singing competition’s three-week, five-episode run peaked to an impressive 8.9 million viewers by Week 3.
After they rocked the house, adorably cheesy host Nick Lachey crowned the new champs.
And the winner is … Committed!
The gospel sextet from Alabama beat out the Nashville rockers and won the $100,000 cash prize and a Sony Music recording contract (oh, and a trophy).
