The news was just announced that ultra-hot vocal group Pentatonix will now be featured on an upcoming NBC Christmas television special.
The a cappella group, which rose to fame on NBC’s The Sing-Off, will return to the network on Dec. 14 for A Pentatonix Christmas Special, an hour-long holiday special featuring performances by Kelly Clarkson and Reba McEntire.
The television special is just the latest huge news for a group that has done nothing but achieve over the past four years.
The group just released it’s third Christmas album and it has hit #3 on the Top 200 chart and ranks #1 at both Amazon and on iTunes. A Christmas television special more or less concedes that their new album will go platinum, just as the last one did.
