Pentatronix Beyonce remixHave you done anything truly useful today? Don't worry if you haven't, I barely have. I mean I cleared my desk of poppy seeds after the bagel that I ate this morning, and I pretty much called it a day after that. But luckily, 5:00 did not arrive and depart with me doing something meaningful with my life — watching this a capella version of the evolution of Beyonce.

It's created by the group that won The Sing Off, in case you spent any time watching that show. They're called Pentatonix and I just fell in love with them a little bit. Or a lot bit, because this video is amazing. They made it because they reached half a million likes on Facebook, so I'ma need everyone to go like them so we get even more of these. There are only five people in the group, but they have an incredibly full sound and super smooth transitions from song to song. It's amazing. Flawless. I can't stop listening to it.

The evolution starts with Bey's early stuff, even some Destiny's Child songs like ‘Bills' and ‘Say My Name' and moves through her career with hits like ‘Crazy In Love', ‘Irreplaceable', straight into and through Sasha Fierce territory to ‘Single Ladies' and ‘If I Were A Boy' and ‘Love On Top' and even songs like ‘Grown Woman‘ that have been released from her as-yet unreleased album. Guys, they do twenty-eight songs in five and a half minutes. It's insane.

Plus! The group is five people strong, but four of them are guys! Two of them just do percussive mouth stuff, but the other two are hitting the original notes. They're not lowering it or anything. I know I'm raving about this a lot, I just think it's super impressive and I'll be spending the rest of my evening investigating them on the internet to find out if there's anything else of theirs that I can obsess over.

Alexis out.
