Ardu is made up of singers Vicky Warwick (26), Andrea Delaney (32), Leanne Fitzgerald (25), Ciaran Kelly (30), Harry Oulton (29) and Tristan Caldwell (34) and they will open the series with their version of U2's With or Without You.
The Apple Blossoms are trio Kate Donohue, Allison Grace Saul and Keri Ann Sheridan who like to sing current chart hits with a twist.
Imelda May will appear as a guest artist in week two.
Sing: Ultimate A Cappella airs on Friday 6 October at 9pm, only on Sky 1 and NOW TV
