In between watching himself and his friends sing on national television and attending his BYU classes, Vocal Point’s Robert Seely still runs the window washing business that he started before his mission. He also picks up a few shifts at the BYU Creamery, except now that he’s appearing on NBC’s “The Sing-Off” – watch Monday at 7 p.m. MT – he has to deal with coworkers asking to take photos with him. “It really surprises me that four or five times a day, while I’m walking across campus, people come up to me and say, ‘Aren’t you the bass in Vocal Point?’” Seely says. “I don’t have any solos, and, I mean, even I didn’t know who the basses were in Vocal Point before I joined.”

This can apply to all sorts of reality-ish contests, but I want to focus on Vocal Point for two reasons. First, they are very, very good at what they do. I’ve yet to hear the judges say anything critical about them. Second, they really want you to know that these clean-cut, well-dressed, physically-fit men are heterosexual. I mean really heterosexual. The kind of heterosexual that goes on “filmed for a national audience” type group dates that include belting out show tunes, while not at all looking like a polyamorous collective.
