The Sing-Off — Finals!

posted by Nell Minow

I hope you’ve been keeping up with “The Sing-Off” — it is simply enthralling television. I just hate to think that they can’t all be winners! If you’ve been watching, be sure to check out the blog from judge Ben Folds. His comments are always positive but specific and highly instructive. Which group and performance have been your favorite? Who do you think will win?

    I’ve ben enjoying The Sing Off this season. I marvel every time a group is voted out. They all deserve to win. I’m partial to Street Corner Symphony and Committed. Tonight will be fun to watch,thanks for writing about it!

    Thanks, Linda! I loved them all and it was a tough call between the final two, but I am delighted that Committed won the big prize.

    I was completely impressed with the talent this year. Every single group was good. I wasn’t excited about a gospel group going secular and sensualizing their music to that extent. But, we’ll see what the album is like that they produce! I like Street Corner Symphony even more I think (musically speaking).

What Happened to All the Great Quotable Movie Lines?
Michael Cieply has a fascinating piece in the New York Times about the movie lines we love to quote and why there don't seem to be any new ones. Look through all of the top ten lists of the year, and see if you can think of one quotable line from any of them. That doesn't mean they aren't well wri

George Clooney and the Cast of Downton Abbey
You don't have to be a fan of "Downton Abbey" (or "Mr. Selfridge") to love this hilarious spoof, with guest appearances by Jeremy Piven, George Clooney and the Absolutely Fabulous Joanna Lumley. [iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/ryo7fqdmcGQ?rel=0" frameborder="0"] [

Ask Amy Says: A Book on Every Bed
I love to remind people about Amy Dickinson's wonderful "Book on Every Bed" proposal: Here’s how it happens: You take a book (it can be new or a favorite from your own childhood). You wrap it. On Christmas Eve (or whatever holiday you celebrate), you leave the book in a place where Santa is
