'The Sing-Off': Tonight's R&B set list

Posted on

The final five groups on The Sing-Off will each sing two R&B hits on tonight’s episode, airing at 8pm/7pm Central on NBC. The first half of the show will be dedicated to contemporary R&B tunes, while the second half will feature classic hits. After last week’s country installment, this week’s set list seems like a better fit for all the remaining groups, with the possible exception of those very white guys from BYU’s Vocal Point. Here’s what you can expect to hear:

OPENING NUMBER: “I Feel Good,” James Brown; “ABC,” Jackson 5; “Forget You,” Cee-Lo Green [UPDATE: The third number in the medley will be Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love,” not “Forget You.”]

CONTEMPORARY R&B

Afro-Blue: “We Belong Together,” Mariah Carey

Dartmouth Aires: “Ignition,” R. Kelly

Pentatonix: “OMG,” Usher

Urban Method: “Knock You Down,” Keri Hilson Feat. Ne-Yo & Kanye West

Vocal Point: “Every Little Step,” Bobby Brown

CLASSIC R&B

Afro-Blue: “Best of My Love,” Emotions

Dartmouth Aires: “Midnight Train to Georgia,” Gladys Knight & the Pips

Pentatonix: “Let’s Get It On,” Marvin Gaye

Urban Method: “It’s Your Thing,” The Isley Brothers

Vocal Point: “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg,” The Temptations

Then again, the producers did give Vocal Point the pimp spot, so maybe the boys have some soul after all?
