Awesome / Pentatonix

  • Let's start with the fact that they are as popular as they are even to begin with. A Cappella groups often to struggle to break into the mainstream, yet they managed to get signed by RCA Records. In fact, they and a capella's other mainstream phenomenon met when they managed a cameo in the second movie.
  • Even beyond the fact that they were invited to perform on the Chinese version of The Sing-Off, Kevin wowed the audience by answering the host's questions in Mandarin. Judging by comments on the Youtube video, he speaks fluently and idiomatically. According to the posted translation, he explains that he studied Chinese language for a year and a half at two of the most prestigious colleges in the country. He develops a pretty charming rapport with the host and it's a rare moment of Kevin taking the lead in publicity.
