Just when you thought The Voice UK being on ITV, plus The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent as well as Let It Shine on BBC One was enough singing shows to bring some vocals to 2017… you were wrong!
BBC One is launching another brand new singing competition called Pitch Battle this year.
Pitch Battle, according to the BBC, will search the nation to uncover “Britain’s best singing group”
It will include “Riff Offs, Mash-Ups, solo showdowns and group harmonies” as a brand new Saturday night music entertainment show.
The title of the show may actually change, as it’s work in progress. However the show will definitely feature the best singing groups from across the UK and from all musical styles: pop, rock, folk and gospel to a capella groups and even fishermen’s choirs.
Over the course of the five hour-long, heat episodes, they’ll compete head-to-head over a series of choral challenges to see who comes out top.
In a format that seems to be inspired by the films Pitch Perfect, they’ll be Riff Offs, a soloists challenge and an acapella round.
After the heats, the groups who perform the best will go through to a LIVE final episode to decide the winner.
