Pitch Battle

Mel Giedroyc, Gareth Malone and Kelis put the UK's choirs through their paces

Get ready for the ultimate clash of the choirs! Inspired by the hit movie Pitch Perfect, this new show sees 30 rival choirs from across the UK face off in showstoppers, ‘riff-offs’ and solo battles in a bid to be crowned Britain’s best singing group.

Mel Giedroyc hosts the proceedings, with choirmaster Gareth Malone and singer Kelis as judges. Each week, they’re joined by a guest judge – tonight it’s US singer-songwriter Bebe Rexha, who’s written for the likes of Eminem and Selena Gomez. From the sneak preview we saw, there’s some serious talent on this show, so we reckon it’s going to give BBC1 a smash summer hit!
