Leeds Contemporary Singers

Who won Pitch Battle 2017? The winners of the first ever series have been crowned tonight.

After six weeks, tonight was the final of the first ever series of Pitch Battle and it was Leeds Contemporary Singers who were crowned the winners.

Six groups made it through to the live climax including young chamber choir Tring Park 16, Portsmouth University Gospel Choir from the south coast and a group of five childhood friends from Loch Lomond, Scot Soul.

Joining them were a cappella group from Kings College London All the King's Men, the Leeds Contemporary Singers and and wild card act, Welsh choir Sgarmes.

The final opened with an epic musical mash-up, then each group collaborated with a Superstar - which included Will Young, Chaka Khan, Bebe Rexha and Seal among others - in a Showstopper.
