The riff-off was “a massive puzzle to put together,” [music supervisor] Julia Michels said. The Bellas and the Treblemakers go head-to-head to out-sing each other in various categories, like Ladies of the ’80s. So when you see Pitch Perfect, be prepared for a battle that features “Mickey,” topped by “Like a Virgin,” followed up with “Hit Me With Your Best Shot.”
The riff-off also includes a song that the two music supervisors were confident “Glee would never touch”: Blackstreet and Dr. Dre’s “No Diggity.” (It wasn’t easy, Jordan said, to find and secure rights to songs that “hadn’t been used a million times” in Glee and musical movies.) – Emily Rome, Entertainment Weekly
