Judges Are Confused By A Cappella Group’s Chant Until The Tempo Changes.

Fans of the “Pitch Perfect” movies, this one’s for you.

If you fell in love with coordinated dance routines set to catchy tunes sung in perfect harmony by a bunch of underdog college kids, you are going to love this real-life act that appeared on “Ireland’s Got Talent.” It turns out, Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, is home to their very own version of the Treblemakers. The college’s a cappella group is called the Trinitones, and they’re aca-awesome.

On a recent episode of the talent show, the Trinitones took the stage dressed conservatively in black suits and bow ties. They started off singing in a slow, monastic-like chant… and the judges looked a little bit worried.

What they didn’t realize was that the words they were singing were actually a unique cover of “Shape Of You” by Ed Sheeran! When they increased their tempo, though, everyone caught on.

Moments later, the group mixed it up again, this time rocking out to “Cheap Thrills” by Sia. The way they provide an entire band’s worth of instrumentals with their voices is truly incredible!

And their dance moves aren’t bad either.

By the time they finished, the crowd was cheering wildly, and three of the four judges gave the group a standing ovation.

Pretty impressive, guys!
