I am not a fan of reality TV shows. You know, the Real Housewives of... and the Basketball Wives and Jersey Shore, etc. I tend to watch some episodes because of my sister or friends or because my Twitter (follow me @vivikechy if you like) time line makes it sound so interesting but even then I feel like I'm losing a couple of brain cells and I begin to zone out and lose interest.

All are under the age of 25 (with three just being 19!). Great singers, great musicality, great chemistry. I became a
Ever since, they have consistently brought it. I mean BROUGHT IT. Love 'em! Here are a couple more videos of some of my favorite Pentatonix performances.
And just because, here's a performance by Vocal Point during R&B week. They performed Every Little Step... and absolutely killed it! It was such a unexpected yet fun number. One of my favorites from this season:
True story but I typed this whole post with a big ass cheesy grin.
Until next time...
