To have your song covered is a mark of success. Adam Lambert had that on last season’s The Voice, and now it’s happened again. On Monday’s The Sing Off, female a cappella group Delilah sang Whataya Want From Me and received rave reviews. I find it interesting that some of Delilah’s members were part of other groups that appeared on seasons’ one and two of The Sing Off. How smart was that?
If you haven’t seen this show before, it’s a competition between singing groups who sing a cappella – using only their voices to sing the melodies with beat box accompaniment. The styles range from traditional to gospel to rap. All of the groups feature several members who can sing powerhouse vocals. Returning this season as judges are Ben Folds (The Ben Folds Five) and Shawn Stockman (Boys to Men). New to the panel is singer Sara Bareilles. These judges really speak with knowledge and address the technical aspects of the performance. The show airs Mondays and Tuesdays.
Catch Delilah’s performance of Adam’s song below, courtesy of mrduckbear11. Do you think the ladies purposely wore pink to honor Pink, the song’s author? Thank goodness they also threw in some black leather and sparkles! Accident? I think not! I’ve also included their incredible version of Bruno Mars’ Grenade, from the first week. Thanks again to mrduckbear11 for this. For both videos, follow the link to watch on youtube. Sorry I couldn’t find it to play from the site.
