Out of the Blue, a male a capella group from University of Oxford and Oxford Brookes recorded a medley of Shakira's songs last week, and they've already garnered a million views on YouTube. Sounds like a dream come true? You bet, what with the songstress herself giving them her thumbs up.

Unapologetic hip-gyrating, bedazzled naked backs (uh, what?), and on-point falsettos are enough to make is fall in love with the uniformed chorus. Sounds very Dalton-Academy-Warblers, but you can't deny OOTB's talent.

While their name may suggest so, the boys don't actually come from obscurity. Out of the Blue participated in the fifth series of Britain's Got Talent, won the hearts of millions with their rendition of Justin Timberlake's Sexy Back and Lady Gaga's Poker Face, and made it to the semi finals. Let's see you not hit replay on their Lady Marmalade cover.
