Pentatonix, commonly abbreviated as PTX, is a Grammy award winning, platinum selling, worldwide famous a cappella quintet, consisting of members Kirstin Maldonado (mezzo-soprano), Mitch Grassi (counter-tenor), Scott Hoying (baritone), Avi Kaplan (bass), and Kevin Olusola (beatboxer + cello). The group is signed to Sony RCA Records.

The Sing Off

Pentatonix got their start on the NBC TV Show, 'The Sing Off', where the group was the 2011 season champions. They are hands down the most successful winners to ever come from this show. The victory won them $200K and a recording contract, however the record company dropped them only a week after they had won. Kirstie Maldonado is the first and only female to ever win the Sing-Off.
