Watch The Maccabeats’ Les Misérables Passover spectacular!

It’s a Jewish holiday which means that The Maccabeats HAVE to make a new video.  This new one might just sweep the Acapella Oscars Grammys, if there is one.

This gang of adventurous vocalists have put together a medley of the songs from Les Misérables (without changing much of lyrics) while performing Exodus highlights. Though a bit more ambitious than previous Maccabeats video, the whole thing feels a bit overboard.  We also personally believe that Shalom Sesame did the same bit two years ago, and did it better, but then again, how could you compete with Sesame Street?

Just watch it and let us know what you think.

And this is the Shalom Sesame version (original song: “Master of the House,” in the film sung by Sacha Baron Cohen):
