|acapella for the win

I happened to catch part of the Acapella Koshien, which features student groups singing acapella versions of pop songs. I missed the finals, but a group called Bam B Crew won. I was told they were quite good, so I looked for videos online. Found one probably from that show, but not the winning song: Acapella Koshien 080923 Bam B Crew - M (Princess Princess). I also found a couple of videos of the group singing with another group called Link the Light who apparently also appeared on the same program: Acapella Koshien 080923 Link the Light - Dreamland.
The videos of the two groups singing together have pretty awful acoustics, but they do very nice jobs: Bam B Crew × Link the Light ~WINDING ROAD~ and Bam B Crew × Link the Light ~ A Whole New World ~.
I also found Bam B Crew doing a B'z song: Bam B Crew 「Love Phantom」. Unfortunately, it was outside so it sounded pretty bad. :P
