5 Piano Battles You Must Watch

Piano battles are not something we hear very often as the instrument was not designed for competition. But who doesn't enjoy a little bit of contesting? Here are some of the most interesting, entertaining and fun moments of people battling out on the piano!

1. Marcus Veltri vs Frank & Zach

This piano battle is one of the most entertaining ones on this list, with one of the contesters combining beatbox with synths, and the others harmonising with each other on the keyboard. It definitely becomes nerve-wrecking as the video goes on as the pieces played becomes more and more rapid.

2. Boogie Woogie (Dr K vs Terry Miles)

Boogie-woogie is a music genre of blues that became popular during the late 1920s, developed in African-American communities in the 1870s. It was eventually extended from piano, to piano duo and trio, guitar. In the above video, we have a Boogie Woogie face-off between two very talented pianists, Dr K & Terry Miles. A crowd starts drawing in as the battle becomes intense.

3. Piano Battle (DC vs Marvel Edition)

The title probably needs no introduction as this rivalry of the two biggest comic giants have been a long-standing debate for decades. However, turning this rivalry into a piano battle becomes an interesting turn of events, as we as spectators, can now also decide on which franchise has the best soundtracks.

4. Rudy Mancuso vs Charlie Puth

Rudy Mancuso is an internet personality and musician most notable for his comedic videos on YouTube and previously on Vine. The video begins off with a light-hearted piano battle with singer-songwriter Charlie Puth, which soon turns into an impromptu duet on the keyboards. Its comedic effect also makes this an amusing contest to watch between the two highly profiled figures.
