    The only show left that had any true talent. These artists WORKED TOGETHER and showed what it means to work as a team. My family and I anxiously awaited this show every week. So sad that other trash remains on tv. Let’s pray SMASH doesn’t get canceled!

    Everything decent on TV seems to get cancelled! Really sorry to see this show go–hopefully another network will pick it up. This showcased REAL talent-unlike some other reality shows…

    It is with deep regret and sadness that I have learned that The ” Sing- Off ” was cancelled for their fourth season. Growing up in New York with ” Broadway Musicals ” , and singing in chorus’s throughout my childhood and adulthood, the ” Sing-Off ” was and still is the most educational and entertaining musical television series that I have ever experienced. The program was brilliantly produced and flawlessly executed. For me, it was exactly like being back at the ” theatre ” in New York . At this time in our country, where our people need and deserve uplifting and joy in our lives, for the ” Sing- Off ” to be cancelled is especially troublesome.
    To illustrate this, check out the number of hits that Street Corner Symphony ( Season 1 ) has had on ” Hey, Soul Sister ” and that’s only one group ( and they weren’t even the winners ) !!!! Furthermore, the judges were exemplary professors who evaluated each group’s performances with kindness , dignity and knowledge.

    Thank you for the opportunity to express myself !!
