Lea, Bamboo ‘The Voice Kids’ semis bets chosen; Sarah’s known this weekend

First to go were Coach Lea Salonga’s kids. From 18, the team was trimmed down to six in the Battles: Angel Aguilera, Darlene Vibares, Eufritz Santos, Jimboy Garcia, Shanne Dandan and Winston Cabiles Jr.

The six went on to Sing Off and Darlene, the cute comedic nine-year-old girl from Antipolo City, and the young Bruno Mars of Cebu City, Tonton, were chosen by the multi-awarded Broadway actress-singer to represent Team Lea in the live semifinals.

Lea said that it’s as if there’s an old person inside Darlene whenever she sings and the girl was on fire giving it all the drama when she rendered her version of the Jennifer Holliday song, And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going.

The Cebuano boy elicited admiration both from Lea and Coach Sarah Geronimo with his rendition of the Fil-Am singer’s It Will Rain.

“Just beautiful singing – no trills (or shouts), doesn’t hurt the ears, so beautiful to hear,” Lea said of Tonton’s performance.

Last week, it was Team Bamboo’s turn.

The kids who gave their all in the Battles were Borge Rivera, Edray Teodoro, Gem Capalad, Nathan Bautista, Juan Karlos Labajo and Stacy Pineda.

Coach Bamboo was in the brink of crying when he thanked the kids and their parents before announcing his choices to represent his team in the semis.

He borrowed Borge’s scarf to wipe away his tears and said in jest, “Can’t we have (a) commercial (break)?… Oh, I hate TV…”

Bamboo then announced that he chose Juan Karlos because he knows how to connect with the audience and always sings from the heart. For Edray, he said it was her impressive performance.

Sarah commented that if Edray was an actor, she certainly knew pretty well how to put herself in the story.

The 13-year-old JK (that’s how fans call Juan Karlos now), whose mother died in November last year, looked up and pointed upward as he sang the last word of his rendition of Stay by Rihanna featuring Mikky Ekko. His Blind Auditions video breached the two-million views mark on YoutTube for The Voice Kids PH.

Netizens have favorites for Team Sarah since Day 1: Darren Espanto and Lyca Gairanod. In fact, some are saying that if these two make it to the semis then hands down, the winning coach would be Sarah G.

Meanwhile, The Voice Kids had been going on tour around elementary schools in Metro Manila.
