NBC SPECIAL BOOSTS PENTATONIX
AT iTUNES

Holiday revelers feasting on NBC’s Pentatonix Christmas special Wednesday immediately went on an iTunes spree, sending A Pentatonix Christmas to #1 and three other PTX titles into the Top 25.

The RCA a cappella quintet’s version of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” the penultimate performance in A Pentatonix Christmas Special, rose to #4 after the show and “Mary, Did You Know” has hit #22; they are the only holiday songs in the iTunes Top 50.

On the album side That’s Christmas to Me is #4,  while the deluxe edition of that set is #7. PTXmas is #24. According to Nielsen's overnight ratings, 7.5m viewers tuned in for the hourlong special.

After the first airing of the special, the group released the video for "Up on the Housetop," featuring Lego renderings of PTX members. Check it:
