NBC's a capella competition The Sing-Off is expanding, but it still won't go live unfortunately!
That means even though the show has been upgraded to regular series status, NBC and the show's producers have opted not to try and make The Sing-Off a live TV event (in the vein of American Idol or The Voice).
That's partly to accommodate the college students who make up many of the show's a capella groups. "If the shows were live between September and December, we wouldn't be able to have them in the competition," says NBC alternative series executive vice president Paul Telegdy. "It's one of the reasons we always shoot it at a certain time of year, as we don't want to disadvantage the collegiate groups."
That doesn't mean that it won't have a live finale, though, as that's standard practice even for taped competition shows. It IS up to the viewers after all!
Apparently there will also be a new set and new weekly challenges as well.
Are U excited for the new season??
