Kapamilya Network has once again released its much awaited ABS-CBN Christmas station ID!
The race to the much-anticipated grand finals of “The Voice of the Philippines” is set as its top 8 artists fight for their survival to win a coveted slot in the top-rating and Twitter-trending singing-reality show’s much-anticipated grand finals.
The competition heats up in the last two weeks as “The Voice” airs four Live Shows on September 21, 22, 28, and the grand finals on September 29. Viewers can also vote during Saturday’s Live Shows.
This Saturday (Sept 21) and Sunday (Sept 22), the two remaining artists of the teams of Apl de Ap, Sarah Geronimo, Bamboo, and Lea Salonga will finally face off to determine the top 4 artists who will battle for the “The Voice of the Philippines” title.
The viewing public and the coaches have an equal say on who will advance to the grand finals, as determined by the combined percentages of the public votes on Saturday’s and Sunday’s Live Shows, as well as the coaches’ scores.
Competing for Team Apl are four-chair turners ‘mighty’ Thor and Janice Javier, who will bring years of professional performing experience to the stage. Whose voice will win the hearts of viewers and coach Apl’s?
For Team Sarah, meanwhile, divas Morissette Amon and Klarisse de Guzman will try to outperform each other to remain in the show. Both are young, passionate, and singing competition veterans, but in “The Voice,” the two will be pushed to their limits for their dream of becoming the next singing superstar.
For Kamp Kawayan or Team Bamboo, the competition is down between singing heartthrobs Paolo Onesa and Myk Perez, who seem to have captured the hearts of the public, as proven by their consistent top ranking in the previous Live Shows’ poll results.
Fighting to represent Team Lea in the finals are singing pros Mitoy and Radha, who are expected to turn in an explosive battle of powerhouse vocals. Will Radha get her second shot at fame or will Mitoy secure his place in the limelight?
Who will be declared as the top 4 artists to compete in the grand finals?

The long wait is over and the country’s best voices will finally be heard as ABS-CBN premieres the most anticipated singing-reality competition on Philippine television, “The Voice of the Philippines,” this coming Saturday (June 15).
The show, hosted by ultimate multimedia star Toni Gonzaga, kicks off the competition with its talked about and unique Blind Auditions wherein coaches Apl de Ap, Sarah Geronimo, Bamboo, and Ms. Lea Salonga will select the artists they want to mentor just by listening to the aspirant’s singing voice. Each coach must pick 12 artists for their respective teams who will advance to the next rounds of competition— the Battle Rounds and the Live Shows.
When ABS-CBN said in early 2013 that it was going to bring the local adaptation of the worldwide hit format, the announcement was met with high expectations. This is because the Philippines is known for producing excellent singers, with most Filipinos fond of either singing at KTV bars or joining singing competitions. Even Philibert Braat, international consultant for franchise owner TALPA, acknowledged this. “The world knows that Filipinos are the best singers in the world so I think the country really deserves ‘The Voice of the Philippines.’ With the lineup of coaches that the show has, it’s going to be of international standards,” said Braat.
Filipinos across the globe have expressed excitement for “The Voice of the Philippines” especially in the online world where the show is being constantly talked about on various social networking sites and where fans are already rooting for their respective coaches. The show’s primer “Mic Test: The Voice of the Philippines Primer” also made it to the top trending topics on micro-blogging site Twitter when it aired last Sunday (June 9).
Fans will be surely raving more once they watch the pilot telecast this Saturday (June 15) when the coaches get to hear the voices of the aspirants. Some of those to watch for include a rakista dad who wants to change his life, a fresh college graduate with a talent for singing, a former band vocalist who wants to step into spotlight, a Fil-Am working student who wants to pursue a recording career, plus a balut vendor, a taxi driver, and a belt vendor who all have temporarily set their jobs aside to become singers.
Who among them will motivate the coaches to push the red button and accept them? Who among the coaches will complete the team lineup first? Who among the artists made coach Sarah Geronimo cry?
“The Voice” is a unique singing competition where auditions are based solely on vocal ability. It first started in Netherlands in 2010 and in a span of three years, has been localized in more than 40 countries worldwide including the more popular US version where Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton, Shakira, and Usher sat in the iconic red swiveling chairs as celebrity coaches. It is open to artists aged 16 and above with pure singing talent and with or without professional experience.
Also joining host Toni as “V reporters” of the “The Voice of the Philippines” are Robi Domingo and Alex Gonzaga who will give the various updates and sidelights of the show.

Apl.de.ap is now confirmed as the fourth and final coach of the upcoming reality singing competition on ABS-CBN “The Voice of the Philippines.”
Apl.de.ap will join Bamboo, Sarah Geronimo and Lea Salonga, who will also serve as judges/mentors of the Philippine version of the hit reality competition.
In a report by ABS-CBN.com, Apl.de.ap has just signed a contract with the Kapamilya Network. He’s leaving for Europe today to fulfill some commitments and when he returns next month, the Black Eyed Peas member will take one of the judges/coaches’ seat to help find the most incredible vocal talent in the country.
“The Voice of the Philippines” will be hosted by Toni Gonzaga with Robi Domingo serving as social media correspondent. The show is slated to air later this year.
Francisco “Bamboo” Mañalac will be the second coach in the Philippine version of the reality singing contest “The Voice.”
The former Rivermaya and Bamboo frontman joins Sarah Geronimo, who was introduced to be part of the show early this month, in recruiting contestants to their respective teams to coach them for a chance to be named “The Voice.”
“Handa na ako maging coach. May tamang oras lahat ng ‘yan at naniniwala akong ito na ‘yun,” Bamboo said of his stint in the “The Voice of the Philippines.”
Although popularly known for his contribution to local rock music, Bamboo said he is open to coaching singing hopefuls who identify with different genres of music.
“Matagal na akong nakikinig sa rock pero pinapakinggan ko lahat ng genres – from rock to pop to folk to everything. Naghahanap ako ng singer na bukas sa iba’t ibang klaseng musika at willing makinig at matuto,” he said.
In order to form their teams, the coaches will hold “Blind Auditions,” where their backs are turned to the contestants. Only the voice will be the determining factor in prompting the coaches to push their button, turning their chair around, to signal their intention to recruit the contestant.
Hosted by Toni Gonzaga, “The Voice of the Philippines” is currently holding auditions in time for its premiere telecast later this year on ABS-CBN.
Aspiring contestants can audition online until February 19 by logging on to www.thevoice.abs-cbn.com.
On-ground auditions will also be held in Bacolod, Iloilo, Tacloban, and Cebu on February 23; General Santos, Zamboanga, Cagayan De Oro, and Davao on March 2; and in Palawan, Laoag, Naga, Legazpi, Baguio, Dagupan, and Manila on March 9.
Participants must have Filipino ancestry and must be 16 years of age by June 2013.
