'Evolution Of Music' By Pentatonix Gives A Cappella Tour Of Best Songs Across Ten Centuries (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

On Sunday, comedy queen Rebel Wilson kicked off the MTV Movie awards with her co-stars from "Pitch Perfect" for an epic pop-song mashup. Now the a cappella group Pentatonix is giving Wilson and crew a run for their money with their YouTube video titled, "Evolution Of Music."

In the video above, five singers take us on a gleeful ride through ten centuries of musical history. From Gregorian chants of the 11th century to the pop hits of the aughts, Pentatonix blows our minds with their seamless instrument-free arrangements.

Could the group team up with "The Evolution Of Dance" comedian Judson Laipply and perform the best viral dance/musical mashup ever? We hope this is someday a possibility.

Check out more of Pentatonix's musical masterpieces in the slideshow below, and let us know what you think of the group in the comments.
