One amazing vocal group. Some seriously tough questions.
If you've been on social media in the last two years (and lets face it, you have A LOT), there's no question that you will have seen Pentatonix. The a capella group's performances - a mixture of covers and originals - are pure internet gold, not to mention pretty incredible. It's a combination of awesomeness that has helped Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi, Kirstie Maldonado, Avi Kaplan and Kevin Olusola amass more than six million YouTube subscribers.
Now, as the group release their new Christmas album 'That's Christmas To Me', Mitch sat down to take the PopBuzz Q&A, and this is what happened.
"Well, now that I'm a boring adult, I wake up and have a cup of coffee while waiting for my extended family to arrive. But when I was a kid, I would run past the presents (with my hand over my eyes so it would be a surprise) straight into my parents' room and bug them until they got up. They loved to document every Christmas morning."
"Kevin would be a drum machine or a sampler because he's so multi-faceted. Avi would be an upright bass. Kirstie would be a French horn, maybe? Scott would be a cello. I would be a synthesizer (if I had it my way). What a strange band we would be."
"Any hard rock songs, I think. 'Sail' by AWOLNATION comes to mind. I think it would fall a little flat."
"'Start Over' by Beyoncé. I don't know why, but I find myself singing that song at least once a day. There's something about it that's really fun to sing, not to mention it's a great song."
"'Aha!' by Imogen Heap. She's my favourite."
"'What I Might Do (Karma Kid Remix)' by Ben Pearce. I was at a restaurant in Paris and the DJ played this song. His set was amazing. I shazammed nearly every song."
"The lip print emoji. I feel like it's very me. And very applicable."
"A cover of Beyoncé's 'Pretty Hurts' by two talented young ladies named Chloe and Halle.
"Merry Christmas and happy holidays! I hope everyone enjoys their time with family and loved ones, and thank you for those of you who have continued to support us! We love you!"
