Watch Pentatonix's Epic 'Evolution of Michael Jackson' Medley
From Jackson 5's
"I Want You Back" and "ABC" to "Billie Jean,"
"Beat It" and "Black or White."
Pentatonix is back with a
new epic evolution arrangement — this time, charting the comprehensive
catalog of Michael Jackson.
The a cappella group shared
the song Monday, beginning with snippets of Jackson 5's "I Want
You Back," "ABC" and "I'll Be There," and running
through "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'," "Rock With You,"
"Billie Jean," "Beat It," "Thriller,"
"Man in the Mirror," "Smooth Criminal," "Black
or White" and "You Are Not Alone," among others.
The RCA artists — currently
touring with Kelly Clarkson and fresh off the release of their On My
Way Home documentary — have previously released evolution-style
videos of Beyonce and other acts.
"People just like evolution
videos — 'Evolution of Dance' was one of the biggest YouTube videos
in history," Scott Hoying previously told The Hollywood Reporter
of their ambitious medleys. Mitch Grassi added, "The evolution
concept is much more captivating [than our straight covers]. It is really
vocally taxing, but I think we can do it for a few shows."
