Exactly one year ago, NBC was not airing "The Voice," but another entertaining singing show, an a cappella competition called "The Sing-Off." While, sadly, 2011 turned out to be "The Sing-Off's" last season, before it was cancelled amid protests from its cult following, the winners of that third and final season, Pentatonix, have ironically gone on to become the series' far-and-away most successful alums.
While Pentatonix were competing
on "The Sing-Off," they placed no fewer than 11 songs in
the top 10 Soundtracks chart on iTunes, and since their win, their
YouTube channel--which features a cappella covers of everything and
everyone from Gotye to Gaga to "Gangnam Style"--has racked
up nearly 30 million views. Additionally, their debut EP, PTX Vol.
1, recently entered the Billboard 200 at number 14 and the iTunes
pop chart at number one, and they've sold out headlining shows across
the country, with tickets for their new nationwide tour going on sale
