I hate comparing covers to the original, but in this case I can honestly say I prefer the Pentatonix version of the Maroon 5 hit “Payphone.” Mitch gets the lead here–his falsetto at once angelic and soulful. Scott gets his moment too and it’s FABULOUS. Loves this.
The quintet, winners of the 2nd and final season of The Sing Off, remind y’all to check out their tour. Many of the dates are SOLD OUT (including mine in Boston. BOO). I’d love to see them live. Alas. Maybe next time.
