About the series
Inspired by the hit movie Pitch Perfect, Sing It On is an American reality television series that focuses on five collegiate a cappella teams competing to win the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella Finals. Produced by John Legend, Sing It On Season 1 premiered on Pop on May 13, 2015.
In this story of friendship, music and intense competition, the producers present teams from three colleges who are looking for new singers and go through auditions, callbacks and competition of a prestigious a cappella championship. The set up somewhat reminds that of American Idol, where singers present what they are capable of. Unlike American Idol, those who compete have to not only be able to sing, but also fit in with the group that they are being chosen for, as they will be spending a lot of time together in the future.
Current season, ratings and renewal chances
The series portrays an arduous competition process and is filled with drama, laughter and tears. Unlike many other talent shows, Sing It On has the feeling of unity and compatriotism amongst the groups, as they choose who will replace the seniors that are leaving and prepare for the competition. Premiering to good reviews, the series received a score of 6.9 out of 10 on IMDb. Although there is no official news on the fate of the series, its popularity warrants a continuation and we hope to see Sing It On Season 2 some time in the future.
