AcoUstiKats do not advance past top 6

By Kristina Belcher, Published:

The acoUstiKats’ run toward a recording contract and a $100,000 prize on NBC’s “The Sing-Off” is over.

The group was one of two a cappella groups eliminated on Wednesday’s episode, when the top six battled for a spot in the semi-finals.

AcoUstiKats include two Franklin County High School graduates, Patrick Banks and Nick Johnson.

Also in the group is Evan Pulliam, son of Steve Pulliam, formerly of Frankfort, and his wife, Diana Evans.

“The Sing-Off experience was the most incredible experience of my life,” Johnson said, after the results were announced Wednesday. “I have never been more emotionally connected to anything before and I loved everything about my time on the show.”

On Wednesday’s “movie-themed” episode, the acoUstiKats performed the upbeat hit “Old Time Rock and Roll” by Bob Seger.

They even channeled their inner Tom Cruise from his iconic scene in “Risky Business” when three of the members stripped down to their boxers during the performance.

The judges applauded their upbeat and fun approach.

“I love my fellow acoUstiKats with my whole heart and I’m so proud of them and the journey we’ve taken together,” Johnson said.

The remaining four groups will be back at it tonight at 8 p.m.

  • I watched last night, and although their song and routine was very good, there were other groups that were flat out better. They should be very proud of themselves.
