Nick Lachey and wife Vanessa Minnillo took in an a capella show by Straight No Chaser at Cincinnati's Taft Theatre. And it was a family night: the newlyweds were joined by Drew Lachey and his wife Lea. During intermission, the guys headed backstage to meet the group where they chatted about, among other things, Nick's music-themed reality show The Sing-Off. Cara Lynn Shultz

The Sing-Off, NBC's a cappella competition show, signed off Monday, with the three finalists – Pentatonix, Urban Method and the Dartmouth Aires – battling it out for the grand prize of $200,000 and a recording contract with Sony Music.
In the end, Pentatonix, a quintet from Arlington, Texas, was crowned the winner of the show's third season.
"From the beginning, you guys blew me away ... and you continue to do it. Amazing," gushed judge Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men.
The group performed David Guetta's "Without You" on the finale and collaborated with host Nick Lachey on 98 Degrees's "Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche)."

With the finale just around the corner, the top four a cappella groups made sure every note counted on Monday's episode of The Sing Off.
The vocal bands were challenged to perform a "mastermix" for their first song of the night, combining two songs from two different artists into one seamless medley.
Pentatonix took to the stage first, singing a mash-up of Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone" and "Forget You" by Cee-Lo, and were met with praise from all the judges. "I was smiling and grooving like a loser, so I think you've done your job," joked judge Sara Bareilles.
