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.

Next up was Urban Method, who performed what judge Shawn Stockman proclaimed the best arrangement they've done so far on the show, mixing Nelly's "Hot in Herre" with Peggy Lee's classic, "Fever."

Afro-Blue made a strong comeback after being in the bottom two the last two weeks with a vocal combination of "Fly" by Nicki Minaj and Rihanna, and "I Believe I Can Fly" by R. Kelly. The judges gave mostly positive feedback, with Bareilles praising the empowerment message of their performance. However, Ben Folds had issues with their background harmonies during the rapping portion of the song.
