Pentatonix, or "PTX," as they like to call themselves, are an ACappella singing group consisting of five incredibly talented young musicians: Scott Hoying, Kirstie Maldonado, Mitch Grassi, Avi Kaplan, and Kevin Olusola. Scott, Kirstie, and Mitch grew up together in Arlington, TX. They recorded a Website/YouTube cover of "Telephone" by Music/LadyGaga in an attempt to win a "meet the cast of ''Series/{{Glee}}''" cover band. They didn't win the contest, but when Scott learned about ''Series/TheSingOff'', they were inspired to audition. With advice from ''Sing-Off'' staff member Ben Bram, they added Avi, the bass singer, and invited Kevin to join them on vocal percussion after seeing his viral "cello-beatboxing" video on [=YouTube=].

Together, the group produces a unique, full, layered sound that almost seems too complex to come out of five people. Scott, Kirstie, and Mitch form the melodic and harmonic core of the music, while Avi and Kevin lay down a remarkably solid base. Pentatonix won the third season of ''The Sing-Off'', and have been creating impressive cover arrangements and original songs ever since. They have five EP albums out thus far with a fourth full length album planned, and they regularly release [=YouTube=] videos of their music. They have had multiple viral videos, most notably "Evolution of Beyoncé" and a Music/DaftPunk medley which reached 100 million views in November 2014 (one year after it was posted). Both videos received wide media attention as well. Pentatonix has made multiple US, two European, and one Australasian tour. They've performed pop, electronic, dubstep, and hip-hop music in their signature ACappella style. They're the first ''Sing-Off'' alums to have an album go platinum (''That's Christmas To Me'') and also the first to win a Grammy (for "Daft Punk.")

* CoverVersion: The majority of their songs so far. However, they often drastically rearrange the songs and like to do medleys, such as "Daft Punk" which combines seven different Daft Punk songs in one and "La La Latch" which combines "La La La" and "Latch", both of which have lead vocals by Music/SamSmith. ''Pentatonix'', in contrast to earlier albums, is mostly original songs with only "Cheerleader" and "Lean On" as covers.
