:00:30.:00:32.

# Cause I don't want to walk on my own any more.

:00:33.:00:45.

# You got a piece of me and honestly.

:00:46.:00:52.

# I feel like the music sounds better with you.

# I feel like the music sounds better with you.

:01:25.:01:34.

# And we can build this dream together.

:01:35.:01:35.

# And if this world runs out of lovers.

# We're all in this together once we know that we are.

:01:43.:01:53.

# And when you're gone I feel incomplete.

:02:57.:03:23.

Hello and welcome to the grand final of Pitch Battle

:03:24.:03:28.

I am actually doing a Morris dance. That is live and they cannot edit

:03:29.:03:37.

That is live and they cannot edit that out.

:03:38.:03:39.

Over the last past five weeks, 30 vocal groups have been whittled

:03:40.:03:42.

Tonight they'll battle it out in a series of choral challenges!

:03:43.:03:46.

There will be superstar collaborations, riff-offs,

:03:47.:03:48.

and even an A Cappella battle until only two choirs

:03:49.:03:50.

Then you will get to decide who will take home the amazing

:03:51.:03:58.

?50,000 prize and be crowned Pitch Battle champions!

:03:59.:04:03.

Voting opens later in the show but get ready now.

:04:04.:04:06.

You can sign in or register by going to bbc.co.uk/pitchbattle.

:04:07.:04:11.

Best of all, voting online is free! OK, we have our

:04:12.:04:16.

And if that wasn't exciting enough, all of our superstar judges are back

:04:17.:05:00.

to sing with the groups that won their heats.

:05:01.:05:04.

Please welcome back the sensational Seal.

:05:05.:05:08.

And finally it's the incredible Nick Jonas.

:05:09.:05:23.

And performing with the Judges' Wild Card Choir, it's the

:05:24.:05:25.

And if that wasn't enough, Rita Ora's here too to sing

:05:26.:05:36.

Time to kick this competition off with Battle One.

:05:37.:06:00.

But up first, collaborating with Chaka Khan, it's our vocal

:06:01.:06:02.

We have all been friends since we have been kids and it is the first

:06:03.:06:16.

time we performed as a group. The split was really cute. I got a bit

:06:17.:06:22.

stuck. Natalie put so much hype and emotion into it. He said, mummy, I

:06:23.:06:29.

am so proud of you. I have not experienced anything like this in my

:06:30.:06:34.

life before. It was amazing to be on stage with Chaka Khan. We cannot

:06:35.:06:38.

wait to go back onto the stage. Up first, singing with the superstar

:06:39.:06:46.

guest judge who put them through to tonight's final,

:06:47.:06:49.

it's Chaka Khan and Scot Soul! # I can read your

:06:50.:07:18.

thoughts right now. # I can cast a spell

:07:19.:07:38.

with secrets you can't tell. # But anytime you feel

:07:39.:07:42.

danger or fear. # Cause I'm every woman

:07:43.:07:47.

(I'm every woman). # Anything you want done,

:07:48.:07:51.

baby (anything you baby). APPLAUSE

:07:52.:09:17.

CHEERING That was so good. Listen, I thought

:09:18.:09:29.

I was going to miss the boots. But you have come in with some

:09:30.:09:33.

incredible gold studded beauties. Were you pleased with the group?

:09:34.:09:41.

Very. Do you think they can win? I think so. I believe in them. Surely,

:09:42.:09:46.

I believe you brought her some shortbread? Yes. I did not were it,

:09:47.:10:01.

I am wearing gold so it might have clashed. You do not were it, you eat

:10:02.:10:12.

it, it is biscuits. I smell something coming up. Now it is time

:10:13.:10:16.

to meet their competition. I sense a Riff-Off coming

:10:17.:10:18.

up but first it's time It's our chamber choir

:10:19.:10:21.

Tring Park 16 who are We are working so hard to get ready

:10:22.:10:31.

for the final. The end of term is really busy but we are sandwiching

:10:32.:10:36.

in rehearsals. You can tell they are really close and you can see how

:10:37.:10:42.

much practice they put into it. Nick is going to step in. We would never

:10:43.:10:49.

have thought we would be singing with him. I have got to make sure I

:10:50.:10:56.

am the favourite brother. After singing with Nick we are so ready

:10:57.:11:00.

and we will get on the stage and smash it. Are you going to win? Yes!

:11:01.:11:06.

Please welcome to the stage global superstar Nick Jonas

:11:07.:11:08.

# Do you. to spare me, do you?

:11:09.:11:34.

# I've been looking for love in all the wrong places.

:11:35.:11:37.

# I don't like the way you went and told me 'oh well'.

:11:38.:11:40.

# I have the suspicion you're not being yourself.

:11:41.:11:42.

# I don't suppose you have a moment to spare me, do you?

:11:43.:11:46.

# Are just a fancy way of saying I care.

:11:47.:12:03.

# You're probably somewhere with someone I don't know.

:12:04.:12:07.

# Listen I don't like the way you went

:12:08.:12:22.

# I have the suspicion you're not being yourself.

:12:23.:12:28.

# You're probably somewhere with someone I don't know.

:12:29.:12:32.

# Are just a fancy way of saying I care.

:12:33.:12:53.

# And I know I'm talking it ain't fair.

:12:54.:13:02.

# Hate's just a fancy way a sayin I care.

:13:03.:13:05.

# Are just a fancy way of saying I care.

:13:06.:13:31.

CHEERING Oh, my lord.

:13:32.:13:42.

Huge congratulations to everybody. You wake for one Jonas and two come

:13:43.:13:49.

along. Nick, it is good to have you here. Joe passed you the baton. Yes,

:13:50.:13:55.

he did, I tried to step up, but these guys are incredible. Now,

:13:56.:14:08.

Caitlin, listen, be honest, who is the better singer? Joke or Alnwick?

:14:09.:14:13.

Be straight up. You cannot ask that on TV. They are just as good as each

:14:14.:14:21.

other. Absolutely, the right answer, she will go far. Thank you very

:14:22.:14:23.

much. Nick, if you wouldn't mind making

:14:24.:14:40.

your way to the superstar balcony. Gang, come along. Let's heard

:14:41.:14:51.

ourselves. Gareth, he is already doodling. I am making notes. With

:14:52.:14:57.

your x-ray vision, tell us the truth and advise these two groups what

:14:58.:15:03.

they can do to prepare. We are all a bit overwhelmed because the standard

:15:04.:15:07.

is so high. These are the best of the groups in the series and we have

:15:08.:15:11.

left so many behind to get to this point. It is stunning and it is

:15:12.:15:15.

fascinating to see how you bring the energy up to match your superstar

:15:16.:15:22.

singer. Scot Sole, you brought loads of joy and style and you always give

:15:23.:15:26.

me that immaculate phrasing. A couple of times you were sitting on

:15:27.:15:39.

the OS map, but it was exciting. Do not sit on them and always use a

:15:40.:15:44.

baton. Only one of these groups will go through to the next round, the

:15:45.:15:47.

other is about to be knocked out of the night's final.

:15:48.:15:50.

Deciding their fate is the themed Riff-Off!

:15:51.:15:55.

Let's reveal to the audience at home what your theme is!

:15:56.:16:06.

Well, all you have to do to succeed tonight is,

:16:07.:16:17.

You've simply got to be better than the other group.

:16:18.:16:25.

In tonight's first live Riff-Off, it's Scot Soul versus Tring Park 16!

:16:26.:16:49.

# I thought love was only true in fairy tales.

:16:50.:16:51.

# Disappointment haunted all my dreams.

:16:52.:17:03.

# I can feel something inside me say.

:17:04.:17:35.

# Really don't think you're strong enough.

:17:36.:17:39.

# How did you know I needed you so badly.

:17:40.:18:10.

# How did you know I'd give my heart gladly.

:18:11.:18:15.

# Yesterday, I was one of the lonely people.

:18:16.:18:19.

# Now you're lying close to me, making love to me.

:18:20.:18:23.

# Just listen to the rhythm of my heart.

:18:24.:18:38.

# There's a chance we can make it now.

:18:39.:18:40.

# We'll be rocking 'til the sun goes down.

:18:41.:18:42.

# I believe in a thing called love.

:18:43.:18:45.

# Touching you, God, you're touching me.

:18:46.:19:03.

# Who knows what miracles you can achieve.

:19:04.:19:22.

# I think about it every night and day.

:19:23.:20:01.

There is a lot of love in the room. I'm going to have two separate them,

:20:02.:20:51.

it is like herding guinea pigs. Scot Soul, the prime mover, a bit of

:20:52.:20:59.

Gangnam Style there. Did you nanograms -- did you enjoy it? I had

:21:00.:21:06.

a great time. Just going to leave that there, sorry. Well done, Scot

:21:07.:21:13.

Soul. And pulling out all the moves, how was that for you? I'm so sorry,

:21:14.:21:26.

my darling, what is your name? Matt, my best friend, I know you very

:21:27.:21:34.

well! Matthew! And I had no time for questions. Call me. Very close

:21:35.:21:43.

friends. Only one group can go through to the next round.

:21:44.:21:52.

Cleopatra! Do you believe in these groups? I believe very much. Scot

:21:53.:21:58.

Soul, you guys are so consistent and natural, it comes out very

:21:59.:22:03.

effortless and synchronised. Tring Park, Matt, what a fantastic

:22:04.:22:11.

falsetto, gorgeous. You guys, your energy is electric and very

:22:12.:22:17.

exciting. Now we have five against 16, is that fair? The bottom line is

:22:18.:22:22.

you get the right five people together and they join their voices

:22:23.:22:30.

for that Harmony range. And Scot Soul, I cannot understand what you

:22:31.:22:33.

say when you speak, but when you think you sound like session

:22:34.:22:40.

singers. Unbelievable. Tring Park, I cannot believe that you are a

:22:41.:22:45.

classical choir. You're singing pop songs like that and running round in

:22:46.:22:53.

circles. I picked you up earlier for not living each phrase but there was

:22:54.:22:59.

so much energy. Absolutely infectious. You are up against a

:23:00.:23:02.

group with one of the warmest tones in the whole contest so it was a

:23:03.:23:08.

tough battle. Could we be seeing the winner on stage? Who knows. One

:23:09.:23:14.

group is about to be eliminated from the finals. It is decision time.

:23:15.:23:22.

Which group would you like to see go forward into the next round? It is a

:23:23.:23:31.

hard decision, I love both groups. I had to go with Scot Soul. Gareth,

:23:32.:23:44.

which group would you like to see progress? Progression is what I've

:23:45.:23:48.

seen, an amazing change in this group. I'm going to reward that

:23:49.:23:58.

youthful exuberance, Tring Park. It is down to you, Deke Sharon, which

:23:59.:24:04.

group would you like to go forward in the next round? Every person on

:24:05.:24:10.

stage has a bright future. But I'm going to go with Scot Soul. That

:24:11.:24:20.

means we have to say goodbye to Tring Park. You have been brilliant,

:24:21.:24:28.

thank you so much. Well done, guys. Natalie, are you able to speak? Yes.

:24:29.:24:34.

Your thoughts and feelings? We are just over the moon. You guys are

:24:35.:24:40.

amazing and we never thought we would get this far. Oh, guys. Thank

:24:41.:24:52.

you. Thank you everybody. Congratulations Scot Soul. Getting

:24:53.:24:55.

through to the next round. But not the solo battle that you will be

:24:56.:25:01.

taking on, oh no. The pressure is on because we are stripping away our

:25:02.:25:05.

band, the next round is all about the vocals as they entered the a

:25:06.:25:09.

cappella battle. How are you feeling about that? It is a challenge,

:25:10.:25:16.

something we've never done before. But we're excited. Where are you a

:25:17.:25:24.

bracelet and all will be good! Spots sold through to the a cappella

:25:25.:25:30.

battle. Well done. -- Scot Soul. Who is going to be joining them? You

:25:31.:25:35.

will get your chance to vote for the ultimate winner later in the show.

:25:36.:25:37.

You just need to sign in or register by going to bbc.co.uk/pitchbattle

:25:38.:25:40.

where you will also find full terms and conditions.

:25:41.:25:42.

But first out of the choral trap, it's the Portsmouth University

:25:43.:25:53.

Portsmouth University Gospel choir make my heart flutter, so exciting.

:25:54.:26:15.

They have a real sense of team. The final battle puts every emotion into

:26:16.:26:21.

the song. Portsmouth University Gospel choir showed fight and I

:26:22.:26:27.

admire that. To shared the stage with Seal, he's a legend. We're more

:26:28.:26:31.

than ready to go back into battle. We are in it to it. -- to win it.

:26:32.:26:38.

Please welcome superstar singer Seal with his heat's winners,

:26:39.:26:40.

The Portsmouth University Gospel Choir!

:26:41.:26:54.

# But I still haven't found what I'm looking for.

:26:55.:27:15.

# But I still haven't found what I'm looking for.

:27:16.:27:43.

# But I still haven't found what I'm looking for.

:27:44.:28:48.

Seal, you still haven't found what you're looking for? Perhaps a

:28:49.:29:13.

49-year-old from Leatherhead. If you don't tell anyone, I want. You have

:29:14.:29:27.

met your match! Heaven! How was that for you? This whole thing is just

:29:28.:29:36.

the most amazing experience. Even to be standing next to Seal. He is all

:29:37.:29:43.

right, isn't he, quite cute. Thank you so much, you were incredible.

:29:44.:29:47.

Now time to hear from their competition.

:29:48.:29:49.

it's our university cappella group All The King's Men with Bebe Rexha!

:29:50.:30:01.

All the Kings men bringing a very choral sound to pop. We owe

:30:02.:30:09.

everything to the fact that we all sang enquirers when we were younger.

:30:10.:30:14.

They stole the show for me. Just something I have seen before. As a

:30:15.:30:19.

group of friends there is no words to describe it. This is the biggest

:30:20.:30:25.

opportunity we have ever had. It feels everything has been leading up

:30:26.:30:27.

to this moment, this final. Please welcome to the stage singing

:30:28.:30:31.

with their superstar guest judge Bebe Rexha,

:30:32.:30:34.

it's All the King's Men! # Ooh I'm sorry I'm

:30:35.:30:39.

not the most pretty. # It could be anybody, tell me,

:30:40.:30:43.

are you that somebody? # Don't matter who you are,

:30:44.:32:08.

just love me the way I are. # Don't matter who you

:32:09.:32:12.

are, just love me the Oh, my goodness. Wow. Wow. Now,... I

:32:13.:33:13.

really love these guys. I can tell. I drove five hours in traffic and I

:33:14.:33:18.

wanted to see them and I wanted the best for them. Last time you said

:33:19.:33:25.

you would pay to see them. How much will they charge? Am I getting a

:33:26.:33:34.

commission? Lovely to see you. Bebe on the BBC. George, how was it

:33:35.:33:42.

sharing the stage with this goddess? Completely unreal to perform with a

:33:43.:33:47.

musician of Bebe's talent. Thank you.

:33:48.:34:04.

Come on in, Portsmouth. Come right here. Cling close. Now, gang. Let us

:34:05.:34:24.

find out what the judges thought. Deke, I think it is time to hear

:34:25.:34:29.

some of your trademark low energy banter is. We have got two very

:34:30.:34:33.

different choir is standing before you. What did they do to impress

:34:34.:34:40.

you? They are both the same age, but there the similarities differ.

:34:41.:34:45.

Portsmouth, your performance was so close to perfection it was

:34:46.:34:48.

statistically insignificant. You were flawlessly beautiful and I want

:34:49.:34:53.

to go and buy that record right now. But... That was difficult. What you

:34:54.:35:05.

are doing is exactly right, it is three or four part harmony. On the

:35:06.:35:11.

other hand, what you guys did not do was not perfect, but it is more

:35:12.:35:18.

difficult. You guys did a flawless somersault, a perfect ten, but the

:35:19.:35:22.

difficulty level was not as hard. You did a double and a gerbil

:35:23.:35:32.

somersault. It is a singing competition, Deke.

:35:33.:35:33.

Only one of these two groups will go through to the next round.

:35:34.:35:38.

The other, well I'm afraid we will be bidding you a final farewell.

:35:39.:35:41.

Deciding their fate is the themed Rip-Off!

:35:42.:35:46.

Deciding their fate is the themed Riff-Off!

:35:47.:35:48.

Let's reveal to the audience at home what your theme is!

:35:49.:35:59.

Crazy horses, crazy horses! Literally no one got that reference.

:36:00.:36:21.

Very Best of luck, everyone. See you later.

:36:22.:36:28.

It's Portsmouth University Gospel Choir versus All the King's Men!

:36:29.:36:39.

# You've got that something, what can I do?

:36:40.:36:48.

# Woah cra-a-zy, but it feels alright.

:36:49.:37:02.

# Baby thinking of you keeps me up all night.

:37:03.:37:08.

# Crazy crazy crazy 'til we see the sun.

:37:09.:37:12.

# I know we only met but let's pretend it's love.

:37:13.:37:16.

# And never never never stop for an-y-one.

:37:17.:37:19.

# Wanna live wanna live wann live wanna live while we're young.

:37:20.:37:33.

# Wanna live wanna live wann live wanna live while we're...

:37:34.:37:36.

# I'm crazy for trying and crazy for crying.

:37:37.:38:03.

# And I know it's stupid to be mad about the boy.

:38:04.:38:30.

# I'm feeling quite insane and young again.

:38:31.:38:34.

# And all because I'm mad about the boy.

:38:35.:38:48.

# In a world full of people there's only some want to fly-y-y.

:38:49.:38:58.

# But we're never gonna survive unless.

:38:59.:39:08.

# No no never gonna to survive unless

:39:09.:39:17.

# I look and stare so deep in your eyes.

:39:18.:39:35.

# I touch on you more and more every time.

:39:36.:39:37.

# When you leave I'm begging you not to go.

:39:38.:39:40.

# Call your name two or three times in a row.

:39:41.:39:43.

# Your love's got me looking so crazy right now.

:39:44.:39:47.

# Lookin so crazy your love's got me looking.

:39:48.:39:49.

CHEERING Oh, my word. Too much love again.

:39:50.:40:19.

Too much hugging, I am going into separate them. Come on, gangs. I

:40:20.:40:27.

have to separate you out, darling. Are you feeling this? This is

:40:28.:40:34.

unbelievable, this is amazing. Now, how did it feel doing the old Crazy

:40:35.:40:44.

in front of the man himself? It is amazing, to sing it on its own is

:40:45.:40:49.

amazing, but to sing it in front of him... I know, it is so weird

:40:50.:40:56.

looking up there, it is like my CD collection come to life. I cannot

:40:57.:41:01.

deal with it. 400 million records have been sold collectively by that

:41:02.:41:07.

bunch. Oh, my goodness. Please tell me that you are Rob. You are Rob.

:41:08.:41:15.

Yes. A spitting image of the young roofers Sule. Is anyone with me? I

:41:16.:41:21.

noticed you were doing amazing singing and some trumpeting in

:41:22.:41:26.

there. We like playing around with sounds in rehearsing and we wanted

:41:27.:41:35.

to try it out. Multitasking, lovely Rob. Judges, only one can go through

:41:36.:41:40.

to the next round. Gareth, you have to give me some comments. I feel

:41:41.:41:45.

like Bruno Tonioli and I want to stand up, it was so great. Do it.

:41:46.:41:53.

All The King's Men, sometimes feedback about a cappella is that it

:41:54.:41:59.

is cold, but you brought heart and fronted it, but you are up against a

:42:00.:42:08.

immensely warm and passionate group, that let you down a bit, but

:42:09.:42:17.

fabulous. I would be standing. Both groups brought something really

:42:18.:42:20.

different but really great to the show. Portsmouth, you are so warm.

:42:21.:42:27.

You guys are so lovable and exciting and the energy is great. There are

:42:28.:42:32.

some cheery issues, but there were chewing issues with All The King's

:42:33.:42:37.

Men as well. But you do so many creative things that I love. One

:42:38.:42:42.

group is about to be cast out of the final. It is decision time. Gareth,

:42:43.:42:50.

which group would you like to see going forward into the next round?

:42:51.:42:55.

The group I want to see in the next round, despite a fantastic

:42:56.:42:57.

performance here, is All The King's Men. Which group would you like to

:42:58.:43:07.

see going through tonight? You are both amazing, well done, I am going

:43:08.:43:14.

with Portsmouth. Deke, the decision lies with you all stop it is up to

:43:15.:43:20.

you. He is in tatters. Which group would you like to see going through

:43:21.:43:26.

to the next round? I want both of your albums, but based upon the

:43:27.:43:30.

incredible risks, I have got to go with All The King's Men. Which means

:43:31.:43:40.

very sadly we have to say goodbye to Portsmouth University Gospel Choir.

:43:41.:43:45.

Oh, guys, just amazing. There is a lot of hugging going on. Thank you.

:43:46.:43:53.

Now, listen, going through to the a cappella battles is All The King's

:43:54.:43:59.

Men. Are you prepared for this? George, the pressure is on. Yes, it

:44:00.:44:06.

is and we will give it our all. We better believe it. She is off. You

:44:07.:44:13.

cannot stop her. We now know that All The King's Men will be joining

:44:14.:44:16.

Scot Sole in the a cappella round. But now, let's meet tonight's final

:44:17.:44:23.

two groups about to take to the stage for their Superstar

:44:24.:44:26.

Collaborations. And up first, it's our

:44:27.:44:28.

vocal harmony group, the Leeds Contemporary Singers

:44:29.:44:30.

with Will Young! Leeds take what we think about the

:44:31.:44:39.

choir and do something for this generation. There is something very

:44:40.:44:44.

fresh about them and it excites me. When he walked towards as I got him

:44:45.:44:49.

in the headlight. We are going to win it. The next day I was back at

:44:50.:44:55.

work and they were back doing exams. But they could not stop smiling. To

:44:56.:45:00.

get this opportunity to perform in front of millions will be amazing

:45:01.:45:04.

and that will give us the extra bit of a fight for the final.

:45:05.:45:06.

Singing with their Superstar Guest Judge, it's Will Young

:45:07.:45:10.

# You're making me feel like you and I could be real.

:45:11.:45:26.

# I can't keep wasting my time on your game.

:45:27.:46:02.

# I can't keep wasting my time on your game.

:46:03.:46:46.

Will, it is emotional. I have to say, lovely to see you. You always

:46:47.:47:46.

bring it when you come. Local what we have got, the sleeveless onesie.

:47:47.:47:58.

But hey, look at Kelis, I have got to bring it. You could swap. Leeds,

:47:59.:48:08.

Hannah, you have got a big fan in Will Young. What was that like for

:48:09.:48:15.

you? We absolutely love him. We are massive fan. He came up with this

:48:16.:48:23.

idea the day after we were the winners, he is amazing. I just

:48:24.:48:28.

wanted to shine myself! Come closer, you are too far away! Time to meet

:48:29.:48:33.

their competition. from Aberystwyth, it's Sgarmes

:48:34.:48:38.

with Jermaine Jackson! This is the first competition we

:48:39.:48:50.

have ever entered and it was all about the nerves. We really wanted

:48:51.:49:01.

it. Hey, Sgarmes, you are the wild card. I am just overwhelmed to have

:49:02.:49:13.

met such a legend. Amazing. We always had music in our house

:49:14.:49:18.

growing up, the Jacksons always were part of that. You have sole and

:49:19.:49:22.

feeling on stage. I hope that we do him proud. Please welcome pop legend

:49:23.:49:29.

Jermaine Jackson and Sgarmes. # Where there is love,

:49:30.:49:44.

I'll be there. # Build my world

:49:45.:50:06.

of dreams around you. # I'll be there with

:50:07.:50:14.

a love that's strong. # I'll be your strength,

:50:15.:50:22.

I'll keep holdin' on. # If you should ever

:50:23.:50:29.

find someone new. Jermaine Jackson, so nice to see

:50:30.:52:10.

you. Nice to be here. This is too much. I am touching a Jackson. Come

:52:11.:52:17.

along, this is all too much. So good to have you here. Happy to be here.

:52:18.:52:25.

Have you sung with choirs before? Tell you the truth this is my first

:52:26.:52:30.

time and they are sensational. The feeling, the emotion. What they do

:52:31.:52:40.

makes me do more. So God. Hedge, are you all right, are you coping? I'm

:52:41.:52:47.

very emotional, everyone is in tears. Wipe yourself down. I think

:52:48.:52:56.

I'm having a bit of a crisis. Hedge, you have the best name in the whole

:52:57.:53:04.

studio. Really I think you have said it all, the emotion is there, it has

:53:05.:53:09.

been incredible. I'm going now, we need to settle ourselves. Let's

:53:10.:53:18.

bring back Leeds can to greet singers now. And for now given up

:53:19.:53:23.

for Jermaine Jackson. -- contemporary singers.

:53:24.:53:38.

We are in tatters, absolute tatters. Please use the sleeve. Not on the

:53:39.:53:53.

nose, if possible. Now Kelis, what are your thoughts? Leeds, sonically

:53:54.:54:03.

that blend is so beautiful, masterful. You are the perfect

:54:04.:54:08.

summary broke, technique oriented and then all that heart which I

:54:09.:54:13.

love. And then Sgarmes obviously, you guys know, I love you guys, you

:54:14.:54:21.

have a family feeling, it is so special and what this is all about.

:54:22.:54:27.

There's one place left in the next round, but who is worthy

:54:28.:54:30.

Deciding their fate is the final themed Rif-Off.

:54:31.:54:41.

Let's reveal to the audience at home what your theme is.

:54:42.:54:58.

I hereby decree that the theme is Royalty!

:54:59.:55:07.

Who will become homecoming queen and who will receive a royal wave

:55:08.:55:10.

In tonight's third and final live Riff-Off by quite

:55:11.:55:30.

literally royal appointment, it's the Leeds Contemporary

:55:31.:55:32.

# Ridicule is nothing to be scared of.

:55:33.:55:49.

# That kind of lux just ain't for us.

:55:50.:55:59.

# We crave a different kind a buzz.

:56:00.:56:01.

# But if you want a play with me you better learn the rules.

:56:02.:56:47.

# Buys an eight by twelve four bit room.

:56:48.:57:13.

# I wanna feel like you've let me go.

:57:14.:57:40.

# Let go of every thing, let go, let go.

:57:41.:57:45.

# You can dance, you can jive.

:57:46.:58:19.

# Ooh ooh see that girl, watch that scene.

:58:20.:58:31.

# To absolutely drive you wild, wild.

:58:32.:59:04.

APPLAUSE. Oh my goodness. The bar is being

:59:05.:59:33.

raised ever higher. Enough of the chitchat. We are not at a cocktail

:59:34.:59:40.

party. Get into your groups. That was an absolutely brilliant version

:59:41.:59:47.

of dancing Queen. So wonderful. Enjoyable or stressful? Very

:59:48.:59:54.

enjoyable, we thought we should play to our strengths and something

:59:55.:00:02.

different. So good. Sgarmes, I get the feeling you rather liked being

:00:03.:00:10.

up on the balcony. It is nice to rock out with the band a little bit.

:00:11.:00:17.

And they are an amazing band. Extraordinary. Lovely stuff. Only

:00:18.:00:24.

one group can go through. Let's hear from our own king of the castle,

:00:25.:00:31.

Deke Sharon, as an American, did you love that Rafa off? It was

:00:32.:00:39.

fantastic. Let me start with Sgarmes, you sing with so much love

:00:40.:00:43.

and even though it is not perfect some of the time, I often do not

:00:44.:00:48.

care and that is about the highest compliment you can get. For people

:00:49.:00:52.

who work all day with this kind of stuff. You made me well up with

:00:53.:00:56.

tears when you were singing I'll be there. But I have to say comic you

:00:57.:01:04.

said you were playing to your strengths but everything is your

:01:05.:01:10.

strength. You sing with precision, you have got swagger.

:01:11.:01:56.

It is wonderful, it is such a pleasure to listen to you, Leeds,

:01:57.:02:02.

you are the guys to beat. One group is about to face the chop. Judges,

:02:03.:02:14.

it is decision time. Deke, which group would you like to see

:02:15.:02:19.

progressing into the next round. These guys need to go pro, it is

:02:20.:02:26.

Leeds. Kelis, which group would you like to see going through to the

:02:27.:02:32.

next round. As much as my heart goes out, I have to go with Leeds as

:02:33.:02:43.

well. So we do have a winner. But, Gareth, out of interest which group

:02:44.:02:47.

would you have gone with? Leads all the way for me, they are fantastic.

:02:48.:02:52.

We have got to say goodbye to Sgarmes. You were absolutely super.

:02:53.:03:02.

This is a very intense group hug. Congratulations, you were brilliant.

:03:03.:03:11.

Leeds, well done. Go and give yourself some knighthoods. A final

:03:12.:03:17.

round of applause for Leeds contemporary singers and Sgarmes. We

:03:18.:03:27.

are walking and talking at the same time. Now.

:03:28.:03:31.

So, three groups are left in the running to win Pitch Battle

:03:32.:03:35.

and as it's the final, we thought we'd ramp

:03:36.:03:37.

It's time for the A Cappella Battles.

:03:38.:03:41.

Our groups are now going to have to sing A Cappella so no help

:03:42.:03:44.

from our quite frankly amazing band whatsoever.

:03:45.:03:47.

You heard, put down your drum sticks, drummer Neil!

:03:48.:03:54.

But as luck might have it, we have a fella who knows a lot

:03:55.:04:04.

That's right, it's our very own Deke Sharon.

:04:05.:04:08.

Thank you. Deke, let's get down to the nitty-gritty. You know all about

:04:09.:04:24.

a cappella. How hard is it to sing? It is the hardest. These people are

:04:25.:04:28.

singing without any safety net and one person goes out of tune and the

:04:29.:04:35.

whole thing can unravel. It is high stakes, live television. Anything

:04:36.:04:40.

can happen. Is it easier if there is a large group? Can you hide in the

:04:41.:04:49.

background? Not always. Take heed, groups, Alfredo a cappella has

:04:50.:04:57.

spoken. Up first group that has been mustering support to home. The

:04:58.:05:06.

community support around Loch Lomond has been amazing. It is lovely to

:05:07.:05:12.

put on a special show for the people that mean the world for us. We would

:05:13.:05:17.

love to win the final for them. A cappella is something the Scots have

:05:18.:05:20.

never done before. There is only five of us. If they have a larger

:05:21.:05:26.

group, they can create a fuller sound. We want to show Gareth Malone

:05:27.:05:33.

that we can do this. Performing their a cappella song it is Scot

:05:34.:05:36.

Sole. # Yes, I do, I believe

:05:37.:05:43.

that one day I will be. # Where I was right

:05:44.:05:47.

there right next to you. # And it's hard the days

:05:48.:05:51.

just seem so dark. # The moon and the stars

:05:52.:05:54.

are nothing without you. # No words can explain

:05:55.:05:59.

the way I'm missing you. # Deny this emptiness,

:06:00.:06:12.

this hole that I'm in. # These tears they

:06:13.:06:15.

tell their own story. # Told me not to cry

:06:16.:06:18.

when you were gone. # But the feeling's overwhelming,

:06:19.:06:26.

it's much too strong. # I don't want to be

:06:27.:06:36.

here if I can't be with you. CHEERING

:06:37.:07:34.

Spine tingling stuff. Feeling the pressure next it is a

:07:35.:07:40.

group that has been preparing for the final by getting down with the

:07:41.:07:48.

kids. Because it is a cappella at the judges will be expecting a

:07:49.:07:53.

different level from us. It is what we are all about. They should be

:07:54.:07:58.

detailed, exciting and innovative. The expectation is huge. It will be

:07:59.:08:04.

a challenge for us to up our game for this performance. We have been

:08:05.:08:09.

doing workshops and the coolest thing is seeing people who have

:08:10.:08:13.

watched the programme and they want to do it themselves. The kids

:08:14.:08:17.

supporting as is one of the best things and we would love to be able

:08:18.:08:18.

to win for them. # Why does love always

:08:19.:08:33.

feel like a battlefield. # We could pretend we

:08:34.:09:38.

are friends tonight. # And in the morning we'll wake up

:09:39.:09:40.

and we'll be alright. # Why does love always

:09:41.:09:42.

feel like a battlefield. # Guess you better go

:09:43.:09:53.

and get your armour. Finally, it is Leeds Contemporary

:09:54.:10:38.

Singers Who Hope A Winter Night Will Be The Final Thing. With Our

:10:39.:10:41.

Arrangement It Is Unique To Our Sound And Our Style. They Are Not An

:10:42.:10:46.

A Cappella Group Because They Have Got All The Tools. We Could Not Do

:10:47.:10:53.

This Without Our Friends And Family. For Us To Become Champions Would be

:10:54.:10:59.

everything for our group. And here they are, it is Leeds

:11:00.:11:09.

Contemporary Singers. # I have given all myself

:11:10.:11:17.

all that I had left to give. # All the reasons

:11:18.:11:22.

I confront, no more # Tell me what would

:11:23.:11:24.

be enough, be enough, # If you're still

:11:25.:11:33.

searching for something. # We'll never see

:11:34.:11:42.

how far we've come. # Take my heart back

:11:43.:11:49.

from your hands. # And my pride back

:11:50.:12:03.

from your sheets. # If you're still

:12:04.:12:06.

searching for something. # If you're still

:12:07.:12:23.

searching for something. # We'll never see

:12:24.:12:27.

how far we've come. Well done, goodness me. That must

:12:28.:13:25.

have been absolutely terrifying. Natalie, how was that singing

:13:26.:13:29.

completely without a ban? Different, very emotional. It was about the

:13:30.:13:35.

people who cannot be in the audience tonight. Todd, do you feel there is

:13:36.:13:46.

a bit of pressure because you are an a cappella group already. Was there

:13:47.:13:52.

double pressure on you? Yes, absolutely. There is so much high

:13:53.:13:55.

risk and high expectation and anything can happen. Thomas, hello.

:13:56.:14:04.

You let rip. You gave that everything. How was it? Yes, we have

:14:05.:14:13.

never done anything like this before but we really enjoyed it. We knew we

:14:14.:14:20.

were in good hands because of Atkin's arrangement. Well done,

:14:21.:14:28.

Atkin. Now, they were all amazing that only two can make it through to

:14:29.:14:34.

face the viewer vote. Any of the groups surprise you? It was not a

:14:35.:14:41.

surprise for me that All The King's Men owned a cappella. It was not

:14:42.:14:48.

your finest, but you have the skills for that. But a real surprise for me

:14:49.:14:53.

to see the other groups. Natalie, that solo was wonderful and you were

:14:54.:14:58.

beautifully supported. I loved it and it was a challenge getting the

:14:59.:15:02.

clean lines and need a solo like that is a challenge. But over here,

:15:03.:15:09.

when it gelled, boy, did it gelled. Amazing. As much as the jail on your

:15:10.:15:20.

head tonight, Gareth. You had a big hit with a song called a cappella

:15:21.:15:25.

which you sang with a band. Yes, I did. I can use metaphors like you

:15:26.:15:33.

know. What did you think? It is such a challenge to sing a cappella and

:15:34.:15:38.

it is your domain and it is beautiful and it worked. Scot Soul,

:15:39.:15:46.

there are things that you can work on. Leeds, it did take a second to

:15:47.:15:53.

get there, but once you got in it was beautiful. For the final time,

:15:54.:16:03.

judges, you have one decision to make before you relinquish control

:16:04.:16:09.

to the viewing public. Decide who you want to put through to the final

:16:10.:16:10.

battle. Are you ready? Gareth, please tell

:16:11.:16:28.

us the first group you would like to see go through to the final battle

:16:29.:16:34.

and viewer vote. This is going to be an amazing final sing. The group I

:16:35.:16:40.

would like to put through, I have championed you since the beginning,

:16:41.:16:48.

it is All The King's Men. All The King's Men, you are through to the

:16:49.:16:52.

final battle. Only one group can join you, will it be Scot Soul or

:16:53.:17:01.

Leeds Contemporary Singers. Kelis, which group would you like to put

:17:02.:17:06.

through to the final battle and viewer vote? Scot Soul, I have loved

:17:07.:17:10.

you from the beginning and if you want to be in this you can take it

:17:11.:17:16.

on the road and do it but I have to say, Leeds Contemporary Singers, you

:17:17.:17:22.

guys rock my world. APPLAUSE. I'm afraid Scot Soul, that

:17:23.:17:31.

means your time with us is at an end. We absolutely loved having you

:17:32.:17:39.

on the show. I am giving you big waves from over here. Ladies and

:17:40.:17:43.

gentlemen, a massive round of applause for Scot Soul.

:17:44.:17:54.

Thank you. We love them. Goodbye, guys. I know we will see more of

:17:55.:18:02.

them. Huge congratulations to All The King's Men and Leeds

:18:03.:18:05.

Contemporary Singers, you are through to the viewer vote. The

:18:06.:18:11.

power now lies with you, dear viewers. The judges can no longer

:18:12.:18:17.

make any decisions. You have the power.

:18:18.:18:23.

So what are you waiting for because voting is now open!

:18:24.:18:26.

You can vote for your favourite group right now.

:18:27.:18:29.

You've got just over ten minutes so get voting!

:18:30.:18:35.

Full terms and conditions are on the website and remember

:18:36.:18:37.

please don't try to vote if you are watching On Demand.

:18:38.:18:45.

It will not work and you will feel silly. Finalists, All The King's

:18:46.:18:53.

Men, let's take another look at them, monochrome bards. You're

:18:54.:19:04.

looking slightly Gothic. I am massively backpedalling. What is it

:19:05.:19:12.

going to mean to you to win tonight? It would mean the world. It would be

:19:13.:19:22.

the icing on the cake and to sing with guys like these, that is the

:19:23.:19:34.

dream for us. It is not cool to talk about money but Thomas, what would

:19:35.:19:40.

you spend the prize money on? Not you personally, the group! We want

:19:41.:19:47.

to invest in the group. This group we have is new, we started it for

:19:48.:19:53.

the show and we would like to keep going after the show whatever

:19:54.:20:01.

happens tonight. Thank you so much. I'm sure that Will Young will be

:20:02.:20:05.

keeping a close eye on whatever happens. I love you all. Thank you

:20:06.:20:12.

so much. They're about to go head-to-head in the final battle. So

:20:13.:20:24.

your vote counts and if you have not made up your mind let me remind you

:20:25.:20:37.

using the power of montage. # Tell me, are you that somebody?

:20:38.:20:51.

# Don't matter who you are... # Got me looking so crazy right

:20:52.:21:03.

now... # Battlefield, a battlefield.

:21:04.:21:12.

# Why does love always feel like a battlefield?

:21:13.:21:27.

# What are you going to do? # Always the same.

:21:28.:21:34.

# Every day. # I cant be wasting my time on your

:21:35.:21:40.

game. # You can dance, you can jive.

:21:41.:21:49.

# Having the time of your life. # See that girl, watch that scene...

:21:50.:21:59.

# What is love... # Higher, higher...

:22:00.:22:19.

And they are competing for the ?50,000 prize and the trophy. If you

:22:20.:22:23.

still need help deciding the winner I have just the thing. Singing for

:22:24.:22:30.

your votes, the final battle with all The King's Men versus Leeds

:22:31.:22:31.

Contemporary Singers. # There's a fire

:22:32.:22:39.

starting in my heart. # Reaching a fever pitch,

:22:40.:22:41.

and it's bringing me out the dark. # Finally, I can see

:22:42.:22:44.

you crystal clear. # Go ahead and sell me out,

:22:45.:22:49.

and I'll lay your ship bare. # The scars of your

Well it's been an amazing six weeks with so many

:27:14.:27:18.

great choirs and groups, superstar guest judges

:27:19.:27:29.

But, as the end is near, and we face the final curtain,

:27:30.:27:33.

I know we all want to see the unseen footage from Gareth Malone's

:27:34.:27:36.

dressing room but instead, let's take a misty eyed look back

:27:37.:27:38.

This is pitch battle. We have seen some amazing talent over the last

five or six weeks. Jazz, Opera, hip-hop, is unbelievable. I love

:27:59.:28:09.

that. Ladies and gentlemen, prepare for an

:28:10.:28:21.

outbreak of vocal warfare. This seemed riff off. Take the roof off.

:28:22.:28:28.

It is my first time trying to get these genes on. The mike drop. Every

:28:29.:28:40.

single episode there has been shock and awe and surprise.

:28:41.:28:57.

Damn, Daniel. We have some incredible solos.

:28:58.:29:12.

What about those standards! The best thing about this contest is people

:29:13.:29:18.

coming together to make music and singing together for the sheer joy

:29:19.:29:25.

of it. I love how it is so inclusive, people of all abilities.

:29:26.:29:29.

The people you get singing as a group is amazing. It is all about

champions, Leeds Contemporary Singers. That is, it is all over. No

:37:32.:37:38.

more show stoppers. No more showstoppers,

:37:39.:37:44.

no more dramatic Riff-Off's, no more A Cappella and saddest

of all, no more Deke Speak! Thanks to Chris and our live band,

:37:47.:37:49.

to all of our superstar guest judges - Seal, Bebe Rexha,

:37:50.:37:53.

Will Young, Chaka Khan, Nick Jonas and Jermaine Jackson,

:37:54.:37:55.

to our quite frankly brilliant judges Deke Sharon,

:37:56.:37:58.

Kelis and Gareth Malone! But most of all thanks

:37:59.:37:59.

to all of the incredible choirs

:38:00.:38:03.

It is the live final of Pitch Battle. Host Mel Giedroyc is joined by a trio of musical judges - Gareth Malone, Kelis and guest judge Deke Sharon. Between them they will whittle the six final choirs down to the top two through a series of head-to-head, sing-or-be-sung-off choral challenges, leaving the viewers to pick the ultimate winner.

The final opens with an epic musical mash-up, then each group collaborates with a superstar, including Will Young, Chaka Khan, Bebe Rexha and Seal, amongst others. The groups then battle it out against their opponent in a themed riff-off.

The judges decide three winners to send through to the a cappella round, and after that, which two are the best. It is then down the public to vote for the winner of the £50,000 prize and the title of Pitch Battle Champions.
