Nota was crowned The Sing-Off's winner during last night's live finale broadcast of the NBC reality a cappella singing competition.
The a cappella group from San Jaun, PR claimed the show's grand prize of $100,000 and an Epic Records/Sony Music recording contract based on home viewer votes cast following last Wednesday night's penultimate broadcast.
"This means a brand new life for all of us," said Nota member David Lopez.
"We want to thank everybody for all your support. If it wasn't for you, we wouldn't be here. So thank you so much for this opportunity and we look forward to bringing you more music and joy to your hearts."
Nota defeated Beelzebubs, an a cappella group from Tufts University near Boston, MA that finished second.
"I just want to thank our parents, our families, our friends for being so supportive," said Beelzebubs member Nick Lamm. "We're just a couple of normal college kids and we're just so thankful that we had this opportunity to sing for you guys."
Voices of Lee, from Cleveland, TN, finished in third.
"We just want to say thank you to Lee University, thank you to all of our families and all of our friends, to NBC and Sony for letting us have this incredible opportunity," said Voices of Lee member Candace Whittington.
"We've had a great time with all of the groups and everyone's wonderful."
The Sing-Offpremiered last Monday night and aired three consecutive nights before last night's live finale broadcast.
