Hoying went to University of Southern California where he joined the SoCal VoCals, a popular and accomplished campus a cappella group, but did not stay with this group. He later asked his friends, Mitch Grassi and Kirstie Maldonado, to audition for an a cappella show called "The Sing Off" (the 3rd season). They decided that they needed two more members, so they added Avi Kaplan for bass and Kevin Olusola percussion (beatboxing). They called their group Pentatonix, as suggested by Scott, and is named after the pentatonic scale, a musical scale or mode with five notes per octave. The group believed that the scale's five notes matched their membership. They replaced the last letter with an 'x' to make it more appealing. They ended up winning the show, their victory earning them $200,000 and a recording contract with Sony Music
Currently Pentatonix travels all around the world to perform at sold out shows.
