For Boyz II Men, there's certainly been a rainbow at the "End of the Road." The Philadelphia-based vocal quartet was already hot before that melancholy single became a big hit last year. Its 1991 "Cooleyhighharmony" album sold more than 5 million copies and helped open the door for such other smooth, harmonizing R&B groups as Silk, Shai and Jodeci.

Babyface's "Waiting to Exhale" soundtrack album is the "Chronic" of R&B albums. Like Dr. Dre's rap opus, it's basically one writer-producer's vision as delivered by a variety of voices. And like "The Chronic," it's crammed with potential hits. Mary J. Blige's "Not Gon' Cry" and Brandy's "Sittin' Up in My Room" are the two new "Exhale" scorchers that have followed Whitney Houston's "Exhale (Shoop Shoop)" onto the singles charts, and both score strongly here.

Take note, 'N Sync: Today the world, tomorrow--who knows? Just two years ago, Boyz II Men were headlining arenas and amphitheaters packed with young women deliriously enraptured by the biggest-selling R&B vocal group of the '90s. Emerging from the intervening years out of the spotlight, the Boyz still generated plenty of squeals Thursday at the outset of a comeback tour, but they came from considerably fewer than 1,000 fans at the Sun Theatre in Anaheim.

Boy Power. That's what electrified the mostly teenage, mostly female, crowd at Boyz II Men's show at the Great Western Forum on Sunday, and it's also what's made the Philadelphia quartet the biggest-selling R&B vocal group of the decade. What is boy power? For Boyz II Men, it primarily involves projecting an image that's chaste and nonthreatening while providing, by means of their lush yet polite balladry, romantic and sexual wish fulfillment for millions of impressionable girls.

"Just plain old lying and scamming--the all-American way of doing things." That's how Boyz II Men's Shawn Stockman laughingly describes what the red-hot Motown vocal group did to jump-start its career one crucial night. Now the group is reveling in the success triggered by its trickery, with a debut album, "Cooleyhighharmony," that's nearing the 3 million mark in sales, bolstered by two Top 10 singles, "Motownphilly" and "It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday."

Sara Bareilles feels like the new kid in class. Despite Grammy nods for singles "Love Story" and "King of Anything," the singer thinks viewers of NBC's a cappella series, "The Sing-Off," will be confused when they see her on the judges panel. "I didn't come to the table feeling like, 'Oh yeah, I'm the household name,'" said Bareilles, who joined the series for its recently premiered third season. "A lot of people still don't know who I am. " Bareilles, currently touring with Sugarland, replaced Nicole Scherzinger on the "The Sing-Off's" panel, which includes Ben Folds and Boyz II Men's Shawn Stockman.

A far more interesting match than the Mike Tyson fight was on tap Saturday night at Irvine Meadows: an R&B Sophomore Summit bringing together the smooth young professionals of Boyz II Men and the volatile and sassy ladies of TLC. But the more interesting corner came up empty: TLC wouldn't perform, the announcement came, because one member was ill. Which member and what ailment were left unspecified, nor was it clear whether TLC would be able to play Sunday's finale to the weekend engagement.
