1 4,993 1,686 DovyPaukstys added Pentatonix Electronic music, A cappella, Cover band
2 4,709 1,663 AbbyZee added Home Free Vocal Band I sincerely hope that no fan of Home Free will vote thumbs down on any other group just to raise Home Free in the rankings. That is just soo wrong in my opinion. I love Home Free and believe they are Number one, but the aca community is tight knit and very supportive of one another. Let's not dishonor them.
