It's official: I am a coach on THE VOICE OF THE PHILIPPINES! I wonder who coach #4 will be. @thevoiceph — Lea Salonga (@MsLeaSalonga) February 19, 2013
As in the United States version of the show - which featured as coaches Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine for its first three seasons - the local edition of "The Voice" will have four teams battling it out.
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 (click HERE to read AUDITION DATES AND VENUES).
