'The Sing-Off' React: Talkin' 'bout my generation

The theme of Monday night’s episode of The Sing-Off is its most impressively vague yet: “My Generation.” Anyone who has never watched this show might think that means the teams will sing songs that they were raised on, or maybe even from the decade they were born, but to those people I would scream, “You’re so wrong!” and “Why aren’t you watching The Sing-Off, do you hate good-natured fun?!” Nick Lachey explains the theme as “the songs of yesterday and today,” which he doesn’t seem to understand means ALL OF THE DAYS.

Enjoy an a cappella 'N Sync medley, no strings attached -- VIDEO

Are you familiar with futuristic a cappella quintet Pentatonix? If not, you should be — their unique arrangements and sharp vocal percussion can make any song sound aca-awesome.

Want proof? Check out this medley of classic ‘N Sync tunes, including “Pop,” “Tearin’ Up My Heart,” and “It’s Gonna Be Me.” Blond Scott Hoynig is a dead vocal ringer for JC Chasez; brunet Mitch Grassi’s tenor lends itself beautifully to a Justin Timberlake impression. Really, though, the whole thing is good enough to make you forget the original versions of these songs, at least for three minutes.
