Pentatonix wins the Sing-Off

Congratulations to Mitch Grassi, Scott Hoying, Avi Kaplan, Kirstin Maldonado and Kevin Olusola of Pentatonix who won the national audience vote and are the new Sing Off champions. Hoying, Grassi and Maldonado are best friends from high school in Arlington, Texas and they found the other two members earlier this year; Olusola via YouTube and Kaplan through a friend.

They are most worthy champions and were in my opinion the most talented group in the competition without doubt. I agree with one of the judges who said that they could take a cappella into the mainstream and with the right producers and management could be very successful.

And the Sing Off is not quite over as there is to be a live Christmas edition next Monday night which will have special guests including groups from all three seasons including season two winners Committed, season one winners Nota, The Backbeats, Beelzebubs, On the Rocks, Street Corner Symphony and many of the top ten groups from season three. So two more hours of prime time a cappella yet to go.
