Pentatonix (abbreviated PTX) is an , consisting of vocalists Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi, Kirstin Maldonado, Kevin Olusola and Matt Sallee. Avi Kaplan was formerly a member of the group; he was replaced by Sallee in 2017. Characterized by their pop-style arrangements with vocal harmonies, basslines, riffing, percussion and beatboxing, they are widely known for their covers, mostly of modern pop works or Christmas songs, sometimes in the form of medleys, along with original material. Pentatonix formed in 2011 and subsequently won the third season of NBC's The Sing-Off, receiving $200,000 and a recording contract with Sony Music. When Sony's Epic Records dropped the group after The Sing-Off, the group formed its YouTube channel, distributing its music through Madison Gate Records, a label owned by Sony Pictures. With over 13 million subscribers and 2.7 billion views, Pentatonix's YouTube channel is currently the 50th most-subscribed-to YouTube channel. The group's video tribute to Daft Punk had received over 250 million views as of mid 2017.

The music video that brought me back into my Pentaholic-ness *_* I do not regret it in any way~

His beautiful voice that drips like honey into my very being, his glorious "dancing" (check it out, he hip thrusts a lot!), his overtones... Let us all just be thankful that he exists here on this earth with us ~

They basically take the lyrics of hip hop songs and sing them in broadway style, and it sounds AMAZING *o* And it's also incredibly amusing because some hip hop lyrics are so silly and crude that it's ironic hearing them so beautifully sung

Anyone who has not heard of pentatonix, and even those who have, watch this video if you want to listen to a stellar A Capella group. Even if you are not interested in that type of music, I urge you to listen anyway, for Pentatonix's songs sound amazing and like the instrument versions. This Medley is one of my favorite by them, and they even have a few original songs as well.

Probably my favorite song

It's incredible how they use their voices to make the song sound exactly the same! They make their voices their instruments. This sounds incredibly similar to the song Royals! A must watch!

This group is amazing. They can do anything from modern songs all the way back too the 1900's century. AND they do it all accapella. Great inspiration.
