This show featured three a capella groups that were recently on the show The Sing Off. I never really watched this show, but a local group made it far and this did make the local new, how they were doing amazingly well. Anyway, and since I love a capella groups I was really looking forward to this shindig!
The crowd was HUGE and very excited with major crazy fans! Wow, all the years I've gone to this place, I don't think I've seen a crowd quite so emotionally charged. It was insane. People sit on blankets on the hillside, and then there's also a few plastic chair seats (yes we fork out extra money for the plastic chair seats and a front row location!) But still, we still had a few seating issues (which seems to be the norm for me and concerts!) but it was easily solved and the show commenced!

Can you see me? Far right, about five rows up, in a red shirt,
right behind the bearded guy in the pink shirt.
Can you see? Yes? :)

First up was Vocal Point, the famous local boy group. They were snazzy and fun, but their songs were a little less upbeat than I expected. Slow and dreamy perhaps. They were good, of course, but not as over the top amazing as I'd expected.
My video is crappy, so here's what they sounded like on the Sing Off show:
But I did take a good picture of them!
Then we had the girl group, Delilah. They were pretty amazing. They are getting to be very well known for their cover of Grenade, and the wailing singing at the end was... bone tingling! Wowza! Very fun.
They each took about a half hour to sing and then up last was the winner of the show, and they sang for about an hour. And it was at once evident why they won. Wow, they blew me away. So so good! I loved them. Oh, they were called Pentatonix. They debuted this new cover for us:
But wait, you need to actually see them moving around:
Anyway, it was a very fun show and I just wanted to tell you all about it!
