After rising to the top of the Season 4 debut of The Sing-Off Monday night, the University of Kentucky’s acoUstiKats found themselves fighting to stay in the competition Wednesday.
The Kats had to face down dance-heavy Puerto Rican ensemble Calle Sol in the show’s new Ultimate Sing-Off show-ending battle for survival. They did triumph in the performance of Kelly Clarkson’s Stronger, outclassing a smaller group that was more dance than vocally oriented and had some homesick members.
The acoUstiKats will continue on to the next episode, focused on chart toppers, at 8 p.m. Thursday.
The acoUstiKats got a little visit from home themselves.
