PENTATONIX COVER: CHEERLEADER
Pentatonix is named after the pentatonic scale, a musical scale or mode with five notes per octave.

The singers of Pentatonix have more than a billion views of their a cappella covers and other performances on their YouTube channel. But they may have outdone themselves with their version of Jamaican singer OMI’s summertime smash, Cheerleader. The group’s latest video features the five members wearing letterman hoodies — with “PTX” emblazoned on them, natch — and crooning away in a gym.
The group’s also getting fans fired up for new music: At the end of the video, after the credits roll, the screen goes black except for text that reads “Can’t Sleep Love #Soon.” Since Can’t Sleep Love is an unreleased song the quintet has been performing while on tour with the newly pregnant Kelly Clarkson, can new music be far away?

Pentatonix (or PTX) is an American a cappella group consisting of five vocalists originating from Arlington, Texas. Their work, which is mostly in the pop style, consists of covers of existing songs, sometimes in the form of medleys, along with original material. Their music is defined by their own arrangement style, tight vocal harmonies, extensive vocal riffing, deep and steady vocal bassl ines, and a diverse range of vocal percussion and beat boxing.

Pentatonix formed in 2011 and came to prominence the same year by winning the third season of The Sing-Off on NBC, their victory earning them $200,000 and a recording contract with Sony Music. After being dropped from the label (Epic Records) after The Sing-Off, the group formed their popular YouTube channel and distributed their music through Madison Gate Records, a small independent label owned by Sony Pictures that distributes movie soundtracks. The group also made effective use of social media to interact with their fan base.
Having now eclipsed 8.7 million subscribers and more than 1 billion cumulative views, the PTX official YouTube page is currently the 13th most subscribed-to music channel and the 44th most subscribed channel overall. Pentatonix’s most viewed music video is a tribute to Daft Punk that recently surpassed 150 million views.
