Have a Very Merry, '90s-tastic Christmas. Love, 'The Sing-Off'

By Sarah Carlson | TV Reviews | December 24, 2013 | Comments ()


The Sing-Off finale aired last night and the country quintet Home Free deservedly took home the top prize. (Those notes they hit in their rendition of “Ring of Fire”? Downright impressive.) But what really warmed my ’90s-loving heart were the performances by all three judges — Shawn Stockman (of Boyz II Men), Jewel and Ben Folds — as well as Nick Lachey along with the rest of 98 Degrees. Yes — all those guys are 98 Degrees are still alive! To completely round out my childhood flashbacks, Stockman even performed “Joyful Joyful” from Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit because he is definitely down with G-O-D. Glorious.

Even though NBC’s stylists dressed the contestants as if it were the Hunger Games and they were visiting Panem’s Capitol, and the choreography that was forced upon them was cringe-worthy at times, The Sing-Off’s fourth season was a successful one. Here’s hoping for another season.

In the meantime, enjoy these nostalgia-heavy holiday performances.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
