Another singing competition coming to BBC ONE

by | Jan 9, 2017 | All, TV News

The BBC has commissioned ANOTHER singing competition for that difficult Saturday night slot.  



Pitch Battle (w/t) is a contemporary competition that will 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 five hour-long, heat episodes, they’ll compete head-to-head over a series of choral challenges including Pitch Perfect inspired Riff Offs, a soloists challenge and an a capella round. The groups will need to pull out-all-the-stops in this no-chords-barred, sing or be sung-off tournament to win the live final.

Karen Smith, CEO Tuesday’s Child: “After a divisive, depressing 2016, we’re bringing some humour and harmony to 2017 in a contemporary new format with story, scale and spelling-binding, hairs-on-the-back-of-your neck performances.”

The BBC’s Let It Shine recently won a ratings battle over ITV’s The Voice.
