As everyone was hoping and praying, with a lot of viewers expecting, Team Sarah is to be represented by Darren Espanto and Lyca Gairanod in The Voice Kids live semifinals next week.
They will join Darlene Vibares and Tonton Cabiles of Team Lea and Juan Karlos Labajo and Edray Teodoro of Team Bamboo.
The two were chosen by Coach Sarah Geronimo after the Sing Offs last Sunday.
Before Sarah announced her Final 2, Coach Lea chose Lyca first, then Darren.
“I chose this artist because she does not sing to impress but just to let out what’s inside of her,” Lea said of Lyca.
As for Darren, the international star said that she chose the Fil-Canadian because whatever he does there is joy showing in his physicality.

Coach Bamboo, however, chose Kyle Bernido – “that soulful voice that has no limits” – then Darren, for being a total package (of a performer).
Sarah thanked the kids first before she announced her choices.
“Two or three of us turned for you during the blind auditions, but it was me you gave the chance to be your coach. Thank you so much for trusting me,” she said, her voice breaking and was in the verge of tears.

The Pop Princess also explained that the nature of the competition is that there is one winner, but the kids should not think that they’re not good enough because they did not win and not worthy of their dreams. Also, each has his own time, and they should not stop in pursuing their dreams.
Of Darren, Sarah said that the boy is ripe and very much ready to fight for his position in this competition.

For Lyca, Sarah said that she admires this young artist so much not because of her being a perfect singer; what makes her a great artist is her sensitivity, that she’s all-ears in listening to what she’s being taught… “the girl who sings to my heart and to many other people’s.”
Sarah hugged the other kids (Kyle, Diana Agustin, Earl Consolacion, Gab Gomez) and told them to remember what she admonished them.
