The Clean Cut: Pentatonix pays tribute to Michael Jackson in new mashup

The a cappella group Pentatonix released a mashup of Michael Jackson songs, starting with "I Want You Back" and ending with "You Are Not Alone," in their newest YouTube video.

Pentatonix found fame after winning NBC's "The Sing-Off," and the group's YouTube channel has more than eight million subscribers and has received more than 980,143,463 views. The popular artists are currently on tour with Kelly Clarkson.

The a capella group recorded a Christmas album with songs like "The Little Drummer Boy" and "Mary, Did You Know?" and in December, its album, "That's Christmas to Me," reached No. 2 on the U.S. Album Chart, according to Rolling Stone.

"Major labels and radio would be like, 'A cappella is gimmicky, it will never be a real thing,'" Pentatonix singer Scott Hoying told Rolling Stone. "Now we're like, 'It's going to be a real thing – watch!'"

The video was published on Monday, and at the time of publication had more than 181,000 views.
