Watch the real-life version of Pitch Perfect—minus the secret underground riff-offs and Rebel Wilson’s one-liners—as eight a cappella groups do harmonic battle. In this regional round, teams will vie for a single spot at the national finals in May. All musical genres are accepted, so expect to hear anything from old-school barbershop and doo-wop to current pop hits. (A word to the wise, competitors: Don’t even try to top the Florida State University AcaBelles’ cover of “Royals.”) Plan to hit a karaoke bar afterward—you’ll need it after two hours of singing along under your breath.
