    THE SING OFF for me! I love it, and it’s one of the only reality shows where I don’t fast-forward through most of it. if anyone else feels like making predictions on here, I am going to go on a limb and say that Afro Blue will win. They are just in a league by themselves. Though, I also love Dartmout Aires…most of the time. I’m really glad to see that all ten remaining groups will be performing tonight, as I think it’s important for the groups to all face one another. It will be hard to see two groups go home tonight, but I think it’s clear that some are better than others, so we’ll see!

    I’ll also record Castle and hopefully watch it tonight or sometime tomorrow.

    Thanks for the post, Haylee! 🙂
