HOW PITCH BAT­TLE WORKS

TV Times - - Cover Story -

Each week, the show be­gins with a dra­matic themed ‘Mash-up’ fea­tur­ing all six choirs tak­ing part in that week’s heat.

the com­pe­ti­tion then be­gins with three show­stop­per and themed ‘riff-off’ rounds fea­tur­ing two choirs each. From each, Gareth and Kelis choose one choir to go through.

then in the solo bat­tle round, the three re­main­ing choirs nom­i­nate some­one to per­form a solo, backed by their team. af­ter­wards, Gareth and Kelis pick two groups to send

through to the next round. in the fi­nal bat­tle, the two groups ‘share’ a song which has been made fa­mous by that week’s guest judge. near the end of the per­for­mance, dur­ing an in­stru­men­tal break, the guest judge will head to the stage, with a mi­cro­phone in hand, to join the choir that the judges have agreed should go through to the live fi­nal at the end of the se­ries.

For the choir that hasn’t made it through to the fi­nal, all is not lost be­cause they still have a chance to grab the last spot in the Grand fi­nal as Gareth and Kelis have a ‘wild­card’ en­try, cho­sen at the end of heat five.
