Pitch Battle

Series 1 - Episode 5



There’s time for just one more heat before Pitch Battle goes live next weekend. Have the powers that be saved the best for last? Well, you can be the judge of that as a young chamber choir, some musical theatre enthusiasts from the West Midlands, an a capella group from Oxford University, a classical quintet, an all-female pop group and an all-male barbershop chorus do battle.

The singers will wage warbling war under the watchful eye of Mel Gidroyc and resident judges Gareth Malone and Kelis, who are joined by Jonas Brothers singer turned DNCE front man, Joe Jonas. He’s got the honour of singing with tonight’s winning group.


The choral music contest reaches its fifth heat, as another six diverse groups seek to demonstrate their vocal skills. This time, the ensembles are young chamber choir Tring Park 16, West Midlands-based musical theatre enthusiasts Crescendo, Oxford University a capella group Oxford Alternotives, classical quintet Vox-Xover, all-girl pop ensemble Vocalities, and Dublin barbershop choir The Ramparts. Each group is given a chance to display their speciality with a `showstopper' performance, before battling it out with their rivals in a themed `riff-off'. Guest judge Joe Jonas joins Gareth Malone and Kelis on the panel. Postponed from Saturday 8th July.
