“The Battles” has just begun for the Voice Teens Philippines competition.
In the first “battle” rounds of the competition Ivan Navares and Johann Ramirez from Team Sarah were paired to battle it out against each other. They sang “One Call Away”, Sarah picked Ivan. Johann was eliminated (Scroll to see the video).
Another 2 artists that performed were Sophia vs Daryl from Team Sharon, both sang “Got to believe in Magic” Sharon picked Daryl. Sophia Dalisay was eliminated. (Scroll to see video).
Many people would probably pick Sophia over Daryl if given a chance. Sophia is a belter and if you have a belter in your team your team may have hope to win at the end. On the other hand Sharon knew that Daryl did better that night. This is a competition one had to stay and another one had to go.
Another 2 artists from Team Bamboo performed tonight. Bea vs Fritzy they sang ‘dream on’. It was an amazing battle of the night. Sharon said to Bamboo that “Bamboo transforms artists”.
Bamboo picked Bea to stay meanwhile, Team Sarah did “steal” Fritzy for her team. (scroll to see video).
For tonight 3 artists will continue to the knockout rounds while 2 artists Johann and Sophia ended their journey of the competition.
Stages of the Competition:
The first stage is the producers' auditions (not shown). In The Voice Teens, ABS-CBN headed by their regional partners nationwide and abroad conduct the "Unseen Auditions."
At this stage, there will be different judges that will use the power of media to conduct three types of screening; radio auditions, online auditions and on-ground auditions where the team will travel in and out of the country to find the best of the best to participate in the next set of auditions, "The Blind Auditions."
The Blind auditions:
Artists will be given a minimum of 90 seconds to sing their audition piece. The official coaches of the show will be sitting on a chair facing away from the stage and artist. The coaches will only judge by the power, clarity, type and uniqueness of the artists singing capability. If they like what they hear and want to mentor the artist for the next stage, they will push a button on their chair that will turn the chair around to face the artists for the first time.
If a coach turns for an artist, that artist will be included in his/her team. If more than one coach turns around, an artist will pick his coach. If no coach turns, his/her journey ends momentarily (can still try to audition next time).
Each of the coaches will have a certain number of artists in his or her team who will be advancing to the next round.
There is a new addition in this competition is the Blind Blinds. The stage is covered with a curtain and will only be dropped after his/her performance.
"The Battles," (vocal showdown) a pair of artists in the team will be given a song together. They are mentored and developed by their respective coach in the process. An artist that can impress the coach will continue to compete for the next round.
For the losing artists there is still another hope. Another coach can steal you for her/his team. In this twist, a coach can steal two artists during the Battles.
Each artist will pick a song to sing and will compete within their teams. The Coaches will pick the 6 best artists in the team for the Live show.
The "Live shows" is where the remaining artists per team perform in front the coaches, audience and Live Broadcast. Each artist will be given a song to sing for a chance to advance to the finals.
During the first two Live shows, each coach will pick three of his/her artists in a head-to-head battle to win the public's vote. The voting results are announced on the same night as the live shows. The coaches have the power to save one artist that had not received the public's vote that week. The artist not chosen by their coach will be eliminated from the competition.
At the end of the first two Live shows, only four artists per team will proceed. From the third and fourth live shows, the public and the coaches will have equal share of power on which artist would advance to the final four, with each team being represented by one remaining artist. During the finals, the winner will only be decided upon by the public through different platforms.
The artist of the competition that will received most votes will be crowned as The Voice teen.
