"The Sing-Off" Season 3 champions Pentatonix have done it again. This is what pure talent sounds like, people.

When Pentatonix (Avi Kaplan, Kirstie Maldonado, Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi, and Kevin Olusola) were competing on "The Sing-Off" in 2011, they placed no fewer than 11 songs in the top 10 Soundtracks chart on iTunes; after their win, their YouTube channel went on to rack up tens of millions of views and their debut EP, PTX Vol. 1, entered the Billboard 200 at number 14 and the iTunes pop chart at number one. It's arguably Pentatonix's wild popularity, combined with the success of the film Pitch Perfect, that led to NBC's decision to revive the once-canceled "Sing-Off" (the rebooted show returns Dec. 9, hurray!).

Pentatonix's PTX Vol. 2 comes out next week, but you can listen to it here, via Billboard's album premiere. The Daft Punk medley in particular is pure random access awesomeness. Get lucky and click the player below!
