“The Voice of the Philippines” coach Bamboo faces off with the former vocalist of Rivermaya, the band that jumpstarted the rock icon’s own musical career this weekend (Nov 22 and 23) in the top-rating and Twitter-trending singing-reality show’s blind auditions.
Before fronting the said band and eventually launching his solo career and releasing his own album, Jason Fernandez also joined singing contests when he was a kid. Now he gets back to competing as he joins the country’s biggest vocal competition on TV. Will he impress Bamboo and the other coaches? Which coaches will turn around for him? How will Bamboo react once he sees the aspiring “The Voice” artist?
This weekend, a woman also uses her voice not only to fulfill her dreams of being a professional singer but also to issue a plea to her father, who abandoned their family years ago, to show up and give them closure.
A tattoo artist, a former Star Magic talent, a theater performer, two househelps with inspiring stories, and an aspiring actor from Bohol will also try to get in the show through the blind auditions.
As coaches Apl, Sarah, Bamboo and Lea continue to build up their respective teams, “The Voice of the Philippines” has viewers nationwide glued to the blind auditions. It posted a national TV rating of 30.4% last Saturday (Nov 15) and 30% last Sunday (Nov 16), trouncing rival programs “Marian” (14.4%), “Celebrity Bluff” (10.5%), and “Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho” (17.7%).
