More singers will Pitch up at BBC

Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

Pitch Bat­tle, with Gareth Malone, left, may have sunk even faster than Let it Shine but BBC bosses won’t be put off the con­cept of Satur­day night singing shows. They’ve or­dered a one-off (please, God) spe­cial fea­tur­ing trib­ute acts to the likes of Ge­orge Michael, Amy Wine­house and Ed Sheeran. View­ers will vote for the win­ner. Air­ing in late sum­mer, it’s called Even Bet­ter Than The Real Thing. We’ll be the judge of that... That’s not all. The mak­ers of Sky 1’s Lip Sync Bat­tle are to make a singing­based game show for BBC1. And also on the way are The Chart, fronted by Zoe Ball and Ro­man Kemp, and All To­gether Now, in which the au­di­ence join in. Let’s hope they’re bet­ter than Pitch Bat­tle. Shouldn’t be too hard.
