Last weekend we made our TV debut on BBC one's Pitch Battle. We hosted a screening event in The Grand Social inviting all our Rampart friends and family. The entire night was just such a surreal experience.
We opened the show with the Barden Bellas Pitch Perfect classic 'Turn the beat around' as part of a Rhythm Opener with six other acts; Crescendos, The Vocalities, Tring Park 16, The Oxford Alternotives and VoxXover. We performed Ed Sheeran's 'Shape of You' as our Showstopper and took on an amazing all female group, The Vocalities for a wedding themed riff-off.
We were shocked and amazed to make it through to the Solo Battles where our youngest Rampart, Ruairi (Ruju) took centre stage. He pulled on Ireland and The UK's heartstrings with a rendition of Glen Hansard's 'Falling Slowly'. This helped us progress into the Final Battle against the triple threat mixed group from London, Tring Park 16. Performing a duet of DNCE's 'Kissing Strangers' we were joined on stage by celebrity guest judge, Joe Jonas.
Joe chose Tring Park 16 to advance to this weekend's final and we have to say it was an honour to share the stage with such talent. We thoroughly enjoyed our time on Pitch Battle and still can't believe we even took part let alone made it so far!
