This week was hip-hop week, which is really interesting because hip-hop is pretty difficult to pull off a cappella. But the majority of the groups really pulled it off. Some didn't exactly keep with the hip-hop feel of the original song, but in these cases, it was a risk worth taking. The groups who took those risks did not fail. Case in point. Vocal Point, actually. One of the guys had recently returned from Australia, where his father had recently passed away from cancer. This was dedicated to him, and was very touching.
They're not my favorites, but I loved this performance. Then there's Pentatonix. 'Nuff said.
BAM! Once again, they just nail it. What really surprised me this week was how Delilah finally picked themselves up out of the gutter they had been steadily sliding into. They were one of the risk-takers, and it really paid off for them. For the first time in weeks, they were not in the bottom two. That made me happy.
This was also the first time the bottom two actually had a "sing-off." The Collective and The YellowJackets both had to perform Nelly's "Just a Dream." The collective just wasn't up to par this week, and they were the ones to be dropped this time around.
So that's it for this week. I'm keeping it brief, since I really don't have much to say about it. Having said that, I think it's time to go watch a movie or something.
