    Pentatonix Harmonize Through the "Evolution of Michael Jackson"

    From Jackson 5 to lesser-known MJ tracks, this mashup is a rush of feel-good nostalgia

    With more than 8 million subscribers on YouTube, Pentatonix are certified a cappella all-stars. On said YouTube account, their top-watched videos are "Evolution of Music" and one called "Daft Punk" (that goes through the band's discography) have more than 205 millions views combined. So, of course, the quintet's "Evolution of Michael Jackson" is absolutely pitch perfect.

    Be wowed above as Pentatonix glide through early MJ (aka the Jackson 5!), the classics and even some of lesser-known hits ("Heal the World," anyone?). They all seamlessly blend together in a feel-good, über-nostalgic mashup that's just what you needed this Monday.

    With the huge success of Pitch Perfect 2—and a third edition on the way—it doesn't look like a cappella fever will die down any time soon, which is great news for PTX fans everywhere.

    Enjoy the "Evolution of Michael Jackson" here and you might get to hear this live if you check out Pentatonix and Kelly Clarkson live on the American Idol star's Piece by Piece Tour this summer.
