“The Voice Kids Season 2” premieres on June 6!

Superstar coaches and performers Sarah Geronimo, Bamboo, and Lea Salonga will once again search for kiddie artists with big voices in the second season of the top-rating and Twitter-trending “The Voice Kids” starting this Saturday (June 6).


This season, the coaches are more aggressive than ever, using new tricks to convince an artist to join their respective teams in the Blind Auditions – the first stage of the competition.

“What we’re really looking for are kids who can sing better than our Season 1’s Top 4. And I think we found them,” said coach Lea.

Coach Sarah, who mentored Season 1 grand winner Lyca Gairanod, shared, “It’s hard to find really unique voices. It’s where we come in as coaches to help them improve as artists.”

As in the first season, each coach must have signed up 18 kiddie artists for their teams by the end of the Blind Auditions.

“Yes, voice is the defining thing. With kids, there’s a whole lot more involved. I have a good feeling this season I’ll find somebody special,” said coach Bamboo.

The pilot episodes features a fashionista, a football heartthrob, an artist who likes to impersonate other singers, a kid who will make coach Lea teary-eyed, and a boy who will proudly represent his tribe in Bukidnon.

Who will impress the coaches? What are the stories behind the voices of the first three- chair turners of the season?

Don’t miss the premiere of “The Voice Kids” Season 2 this Saturday (June 6) on ABS-CBN.

Judy Ann Santos returns in “Bet On Your Baby” Season 2 in August!

During its first season run on ABS-CBN, the Philippine franchise of the game show “Bet On Your Baby” turned out to be a huge success—something that Electus, the program’s international producer, was very happy about. As such, this leap for what has become the country’s cutest game show will continue with a second season that’s set to air very soon, starting August this year.

The program’s host Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo was caught by surprise by this announcement—but she is nonetheless more than ready to take on hosting the program a second time around. The first season was actually a no-stress job for Judy Ann, especially given that she had babies and families for contestants.

“A blessing is a blessing,” she said at a recently held thanksgiving party. “That’s why we should be thankful that ‘Bet On Your Baby’ is returning to television in a new season right away.”

Judy Ann also promised that, as the host of the country’s cutest game show, things are about to get more exciting in the upcoming season, saying that there are “exciting twists and new baby challenges” on the way.

XB Gensan wins Showtime Grand finals, Season 2 starts Monday!

With its much-anticipated season two beginning tomorrow, July 26, Filipinos have even more to look forward to from the hit talent-variety show.

Last week, the program announced a wild card round that gave a second chance to groups that failed to reach the finals. Then last July 19, hosts Vhong Navarro, Anne Curtis and Kuya Kim Atienza got the shock of their lives when they were asked to decide on the fate of the wild card contestants as co-judges of resident judge Vice Ganda.

Moreover, the biggest surprise of them all came yesterday at Showtime The Finals, where the wildcard winner from Mindanao, the XB GenSan was announced the Grand Winner of Showtimes first season and took  home the P1-M grand prize.

The wacky tandem of Jugs of Itchyworms and Teddy of Rocksteddy were all praises for the finalists. “For me, they are all winners. The joy and amusement they have brought to Filipinos already make each one of them a champion,” said Navarro.

The hosts also expressed excitement for the second season of Showtime, which has been a source of entertainment and inspiration of many Filipinos.

“Where else can you see hosts, judges, crew, director and the audience all game to dance and sing together? We are a family here and this makes us even more motivated to work harder in our second season,” Curtis shared.

Showtime airs after Simply KC.
