Hosts Toni Gonzaga and Luis Manzano expressed their excitement in hosting the new season of The Voice, which will start on Sunday, October 26 with the blind auditions.
"I'm really happy about the hosts of Season 1 and Kids teaming up. Of course, I'm proud to be back too, since this format is really close to my heart. We get to discover more talents and I'm sure it's going to be an exciting season," Toni said during the press conference for the show Thursday, October 23.
"In The Voice Kids, we were impressed by big voices coming from little children, and that proves that innate talent of pinoy singers. This season, I got to travel the country and I saw the amazement and joy in each artist when I gave them the envelope. During the blinds, I was surprised and checked some of them. So I got to know their inspirations and motivations," said Luis, who hosted The Voice Kids
The Voice of the Philippines Season 2 will still be hosted by Toni Gonzaga, Alex Gonzaga, Robi Domingo with the addition of Voice Kids host Luis Manzano.
“I’m really happy about the hosts of Season 1 and Kids teaming up. Of course, I’m proud to be back too, since this format is really close to my heart. We get to discover more talents and I’m sure it’s going to be an exciting season,” said Toni.
For Season 2, coaches Apl, Sarah, Bamboo, and Lea will have to assemble 14 artists to form a team by the end of the blind auditions. The new season will also introduce the “steal,” which will definitely add spice and excitement to the competition. In the battle rounds, each coach will have to pit two artists against each other and choose only one that will move on to the next round. If a coach likes an artist, he or she can ‘steal’ the losing artist. If two or more coaches like the losing artist, the artist, just like in the blind auditions, gets to choose which coach or team to transfer to.
“This season is going to be more thrilling, and that’s going to fuel an even intense competition among the coaches. Palaban lahat. I’m glad to be of service and show the latest happenings in the program. There are lots of great singers this season,” said Robi.
