The Whiffenpoofs were kicked off “The Sing-Off” Wednesday night. Yale’s oldest a cappella ensemble was the fourth group to be eliminated from “The Sing-Off,” an a cappella competition featuring 10 musical teams from around the country.
In the show’s second episode, groups performed songs like “Live Your Life” by T.I. and Rihanna and “Hey Soul Sister” by Train. The Whiffenpoofs sang “Haven’t Met You Yet,” by Michael Bublé.
Before being booted they did get some kudos from the judges.
“What you guys just did melted my heart,” Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger told the ensemble.
Although Ben Folds complimented the Broadway style the Whiffenpoofs brought to the song, Shawn Stockman, of Boys II Men, found some flaws in their performance.
“The lead vocals weren’t as strong as I hoped,” Stockman told the Whiffenpoofs during judging.
After their elimination, the Whiffenpoofs performed “Home Sweet Home,” by Mötley Crüe for their swan song.
