I went to see the new musical Pitch Perfect two weeks ago with my sister. It's really good! I'd totally recommend it to EVERYONE. The music is great and it is hilarious non-stop from start to finish (Rebel Wilson is a genius). The movie even received a round of applause once the credits rolled! One scene in particular was pretty cool, when Becca auditioned to join the Bellas (an all-girl a cappella group) she sang a song by Lulu and the Lampshades.

This type of cup percussion has been used before, its not new. This is one of my favourite songs using this method, it's a cover of Robyn's 'Tell Your Girlfriend' by Erato, a Swedish band:
