Pentatonix members Avi Kaplan, Kirstie Maldonado, Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi and Kevin Olusola perform onstage during the Rockefeller Center tree lighting in New York City on Dec. 2.

Their holiday album from last year, That's Christmas To Me, remains one of the most popular albums on the Billboard holiday album chart. They were just nominated for a Grammy for their song "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" — and that's off their Grammy win last year for best cover song.

Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi, Kirstin Maldonado, Avi Kaplan and Kevin Olusola make up Pentatonix, and they dropped by NPR to discuss their recent success.

The group also sang a song that didn't make it into the story heard on air. You can listen to it below.
