Last Week on the Sing-Off Afro Blue Outflanked Fugees' Flack…
…what will they accomplish tonight?
I hope the two manifestly most talented and intelligent a cappella groups on NBC's charming if somewhat cloying singing competition this season -- Afro Blue and Pentatonix -- will manage to slug it out all the way through to the finale. But I fear the comparatively less interesting and accomplished all boy scrum choruses will continue to garner undue praise from the judges with their endlessly tedious slapstick crapola and "so entertaining" boys-will-be-boys mugging for the camera.
