The Voice of the Philippines

If there’s anything that the Philippine entertainment world can never get enough of, it’s singing. Hence, singing contests abound from locally conceptualized singing competitions to local versions of international reality TV show singing programs. Thus, we now have The Voice of the Philippines; the country’s own spin off from the Holland originating show. Yes, it’s not from the U.S. where Cristina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, and Blake Shelton judged during last year’s panel.

In this local version, the initial goal of the show is for its four judges to select contestants who will become a part of their 12-member team. These contestants will then be mentored and pitted against each other during the live shows. A major difference among other singing competitions is its blind auditions where judges’ seats are turned away from auditionees with only the push of a button to reveal the auditioning talent. This removes any prejudice in terms of physical appearance there may be when selecting talents. Judges will select based on musical prowess alone even without seeing how the person looks like.

Judges

Lea Salonga
Apl de Ap of the Black Eyed Peas
Bamboo
Sarah Geronimo

Hosts

Toni Gonzaga
Alex Gonzaga
Robi Domingo

As of the moment, each judge has at least about half of the 12 needed team members. Not all talented singers appear to be worthy for the judges’ seats to turn though. Thus, there are only handfuls selected as of now amidst numerous singers who have already auditioned.

Watch The Voice of the Philippines every Saturday and Sunday nights at ABS-CBN.
