Fav Moments: Attack of the Hungry Rossface! Edition

It’s time again to check out one of the big ol’ group numbers from the Sing-off and pick out some great a cappella action.

“Sweet Soul Music” sung by Jerry Lawson and a supporting cast of Sing-off all-stars is a fun, upbeat number from the Sing-off Season 3 Holiday Special. From Vocal Point, both Rossface and Keith made it into this little vocal jam band.

So, what’s our fav moment from this performance? Is it when there’s a shot in the pre-package where Ross and Keith are clearly in the “horns” section…

…but then when the “horns section” is being interviewed, Rossface is nowhere to be seen?

Is this another case of “disappearing Ross” as pointed out by Mikey in the comments on the “You Really Got Me” analysis?  Is this just something Ross does?  Part of the group one second, gone from sight the next?

Or maybe it’s time we go totally rogue and pick a non-VP moment as our fav?  It is pretty hilarious to watch poor Mariah from Afro-Blue fully commit to the number when she has only a mic stand, but no actual microphone, in front of her.

But there’s probably been enough digression from VP around here recently to last for a while, so we’re going to go with a downright classic Vocal Point moment that cracks us up.

Starting at 3:21, we can see Rossface workin’ it out behind Mr. Lawson, giving the amount of face we have come to expect.  But then the camera angle shifts, and clearly the next few frames are supposed to be all about Avi the super-bass, laying it down while being impressively laid back.

But Rossface is having none of that!  The energy level of the performance must stay at maximum a cappella levels at all times for Ross the Cowboy to be satisfied.  So the Face does what it has to and…


Rossface just gets all up in the shot, making a noble attempt at belting out the notes / eating his microphone.

Hey, we wonder… do you think that since Ross has a habit of going all out in rehearsals, maybe he actually did eat a mic then, and that’s why poor Mariah is left with only a stand now? Somebody get that boy a sammich!
