I always knew Pentatonix was going to do well.
In 2011, the group of five won the acapella TV competition Sing Off on the NBC network, and since then, the group has experienced a lot of success with the release of their second EP (extended play) PTX vol. 2. A few weeks, the group released a video on YouTube of their mash-up of several Daft Punk songs, which has received over 19 million views, and just yesterday, the group released a video of their rendition of “Little Drummer Boy” which received over 500,000 views within a day of its release. Having watched a lot of music competitions, I have learned that one has to be amazingly good to actually succeed beyond the show. There’s really only a few people who have really succeeded after winning their tv competitions: Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood. I guess Philip Philips could be added to the list, but even then, the list isn’t that long, but with all the current buzz about them, Pentatonix can definitely be added to the list of successful music competition winners.
