Singing takes the spotlight as Lifetime premieres the new docu-series Pitch Battles 10 p.m. on April 26.
Ever wonder what really goes on in the intensely competitive world of high school a cappella?
The eight hour-long episodes reveal the pressure-cooker atmosphere as two crosstown rival teams from New Jersey are given the chance to work with the world’s best coaches and face off in weekly competitions, culminating in a champion sing off.
Vocal powerhouse Deke Sharon (Pitch Perfect) will stop at nothing to get his Cherry Hill team, Stay Tuned, out of their shells and perfectly in tune, while a cappella rock star and performance coach Diana Preisler (Blue Jupiter) guides Allendale’s Highlands Voices to harmonize their way to a win.
Dance Moms is back with brand new season.

In Season 4, Abby fears that her Junior Elite Competition team isn’t showing enough drive and hosts nationwide open auditions to shake them up. On the show’s 100th episode, Abby unveils her new “Select Ensemble” for the first time.
