More information to fill the lists for cancelled shows of 2012 and renewed shows of 2012. This one is a bit surprising. I thought the network would stick to it for midsummer programming or something along the lines. But nope… NBC cancelled The Sing Off, and the reality competition show will not get to see the air again. It is understandable though, since breakout hit The Voice will have two cycles a year, making it more difficult for other singing shows, hence The Sing Off gets cancelled.
The Sing-Off is an American television singing competition featuring a cappella groups. It on NBC for three seasons from December 14, 2009 to November 28, 2011 and was produced by Sony Pictures Television.
It is hosted by Nick Lachey (formerly of the boy band 98 Degrees), with judges Ben Folds, Shawn Stockman (of the R&B vocal group Boyz II Men), and originally Nicole Scherzinger, later replaced by Sara Bareilles. The show’s music staff all come from the a cappella community: Deke Sharon, Bill Hare, Ed Boyer, Ben Bram, Robert Dietz, and Christopher Diaz.
A cappella groups from the United States, including Puerto Rico, are chosen by audition and advanced in the competition based on judges’ eliminations until the finale, with the winners being determined by viewer votes.
