Coaches Bamboo, KZ Tandingan and Martin Nievera are back to mentor a new batch of young artists who are ready to fight for their dream to become the next champion of The Voice Teens as the new season of the reality singing competition premieres this Saturday and Sunday (17 and 18 February) on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, A2Z and TV5.

Rockstar Royalty Bamboo, who has produced two The Voice champions from Kamp Kawayan, shared his thoughts on finding the next Gen Z titleholder of the season.

“I have never had pressure. I mean, if I think about it, I had, like, disappointments, but I know it is not in my control. Ang alam ko lang (all I know) is as long as I put the work in and my artist puts the work in, and then we do our best on that given night, okay na ko (I am okay),” he said.

Asia’s Soul Supreme KZ, who is back on her second year as a coach, said, “I am looking for artists who are truly hungry to be in The Voice Teens kasi mararamdaman mo ‘yun, maririninIg mo ‘yun, kahit ‘di mo sila nakikita. Maririnig mo (because you can really feel it, you can hear it, even if you don’t see. You can hear) if they are really singing from somewhere deeper,” the coach of Team Supreme explained.

Meanwhile, Concert King Martin Nievera said that he and his fellow coaches grew closer this year after their stint in The Voice Kids last year.

“This season, Coach Bamboo, Coach KZ and I were hitting it off so well. You will see here on The Voice Teens how we spin off each other. Sa blind auditions, how we try and feed off of each other’s humor or even in serious moments, how we helped each other, how we stand back to let the other shine,” Martin said.

Besides the coaches, Robi Domingo and Bianca Gonzalez are also back as hosts, while The Voice Teens alumni Jeremy Glinoga and Lorraine Galvez from Season 1, and Season 2 grand champions Isang Manlapaz and Kendra Aguirre will serve as online hosts of The Voice Teens DIGITV.

The Voice is one of the most successful talent-reality shows of ABS-CBN that has discovered and mentored artists from different editions and seasons who have now made their own mark in the music industry.
