A little game of "Most Likely To..." never hurt anyone. Or did it?
Five-piece Texas a capella sensation Pentatonix recently sat down with MTV News for that very speculative game, and, well, it actually went OK. Fine, even. In fact, the quintet -- Scott Hoying, Kirstin Maldonado, Kevin Olusola, Mitch Grassi and Avi Kaplan -- were extremely forthcoming in their responses. And in some cases, probably too forthcoming (JK no such thing).
When asked which group member is the most likely to commit a crime, Scott doesn't hesitate to rat out his mates Mitch and Kirstin. Mitch is apparently a parking-ticket aficionado, while Kirstin is a known speeder. But for non-automobile crimes? "If it's breaking and entering, it's [Scott]!" Mitch says bluntly.
Prospective criminal activity aside, we also get a sneak peek into the Pentatonix crew's personal lives as they relate to grubbing (who's the pickiest eater?), getting their game on (who's the biggest flirt?), yukking it up (who's the biggest class clown?) and giggling with abandon (who's got the loudest laugh?). It's all very illuminating, as you might expect.
Pentatonix's self-titled new album (and first one of all original material) made history on Monday (Oct. 26) by climbing to the top spot on the Billboard Top 200 chart as the first-ever release by an a capella group to do so. Pentatonix was led by first single "Can't Sleep Love," a track the band described as "relaxed" and "weird" -- both qualities that likely helped boost it with fans.
"You can tell it's voices," Scott said. "There are very vocal lines in it, but it also sounds like it could play on the radio. That's the common ground we were trying to find."
And on the "eclectic" album, it's all about finding the right balance of each individual member's talents and interests.
"We're five very different people and we all went into different songwriting sessions of duos and trios," Kevin said. "So I think you can hear, kind of, the diversity in our sound because we're just five different people. But I think it's definitely got something for everybody."
