The Dartmouth Aires finished in second place in Monday night's finale of NBC's "The Sing-Off." The Aires were defeated by the Pentatonix, the five-member group from Arlington, Texas, who won a $200,000 cash prize and a Sony Music recording contract.

The Aires were chosen as one of three groups to compete in the finale following last week's mash-up performance of "Born This Way" by Lady Gaga and "Sympathy for the Devil" by The Rolling Stones, receiving input from celebrity judges Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men, singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles and Ben Folds.

In Monday's two-hour finale, the Aires performed a handful of songs, including a rendition of "Not the Same" by Folds, accompanied by Folds himself.
