The Melodores win “The Sing-Off.”

The Melodores, a Vanderbilt student a cappella group, won NBC’s The Sing-Off last night (Dec. 17). The competition was a one-night-only holiday special. The Melodores bested five other teams to win the $50,000 grand prize.

Each group performed live and without a backing band, with The Melodores offering “Trumpets” by Jason Derulo and “Take Me to Church” by Hozier.

Hosted by Nick Lachey, The Sing-Off judges included Boyz II Men vocalist Shawn Stockman, singer-songwriter Jewel and Fall Out Boy lead singer Patrick Stump.

Formed in spring 2009 on the Vanderbilt campus, The Melodores group includes about a dozen members, all of whom are current Vanderbilt students.
