Winners of talent show The Sing-Off, five-piece vocal outfit Pentatonix then made the leap to the top of the charts with a contemporary take on a cappella singing The founding members, mezzo-soprano Kirstie Maldonado, tenor Mitch Grassi and baritone Scott Hoying first came together in high school to enter a competition in which the winners met the cast of Glee. Although their a cappella cover of Lady Gaga and Beyonce’s “Telephone” didn’t finish in first place, it became something of a YouTube hit and inspired the trio to enter the 2011 third season of NBC talent show, The Sing-Off. Needing a fourth member to meet the required limit, the group recruited bass lead Avi Kaplan before completing their line-up with beatboxer Kevin Olusola just a day before their first audition. Named after the pentatonic scale, the quintet made it through to the live stages and thanks to performances of tracks as eclectic as Kanye West’s “Love Lockdown,” Florence and the Machine’s “Dog Days are Over” and Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger,” were eventually crowned as the winners. The group kept their momentum going with 2012’s debut E.P., PTX, Volume 1, their first national tour and a six-track festive release, PTXmas, which gave them a hit US Hot 100 entry in the shape of “Little Drummer Boy.” After embarking on a second major North American trek, the group added to their catalog with two further PTX volumes, signed a deal with RCA Records and picked up a Grammy nomination for their inspired medley of Daft Punk songs. Pentatonix continued their association with the holiday season when their first full-length studio effort, That’s Christmas To Me, peaked at number two on the Billboard 200 at the end of 2014 and became the highest-charting festive album by a group since 1962. In 2015, the group appeared on the big screen as rivals to the Barden Bellas in the hit musical comedy, Pitch Perfect 2, joined Kelly Clarkson as the opening act for her Piece By Piece summer trek and hit the road for an extensive tour which saw them take their distinctive blend of electro, pop, hip-hop, classical and a cappella across the globe.
