MIAMI – March 12, 2014 – Music stars Prince Royce, Roberto Tapia and Natalia Jimenez, coaches of “La Voz Kids,” alongside hosts Daisy Fuentes and Jorge Bernal, were together at a press conference held last night in Miami before the grand premiere of the singing competition this Sunday, March 16 at 8pm/7c on Telemundo. Produced for the first time out of Universal Studios Florida, “La Voz Kids” features young vocalists between the ages of seven and 15 competing for a recording contract and a cash prize to support their education. The Sunday night reality show, which reached over 14.5 million total viewers in its first season, willonce again give Telemundo’s audience the opportunity to witness how the stars of the future are discovered and developed.
“La Voz Kids” features three phases of competition: Blind Auditions, Battle Rounds, Live Shows.
- Blind Auditions: During the blind auditions, the celebrity Coaches will listen to, but do not view each performance. If impressed by a contestant’s voice, the Coach presses a button and his/her chair turns to reveal their team selection. If more than one Coach presses their button, the power then shifts to the contestant, who then chooses a Coach to work with. If none of the Coaches press their button, the contestant is eliminated from the competition.
- Battle Rounds: Once each Coach chooses 18 contestants, their team is set, and the battle is on. Coaches then dedicate themselves to developing each contestant, and with the help of acclaimed musical guest mentors, willgive advice and share success secrets. Six groups of three contestants, per Coach, compete in each battle by singing the same song together in front of a studio audience. Two of the three contestants are eliminated from each battle, leaving 18 total finalists for the live shows.
- Show Finals: During the final performance phase of the competition, each week, the top contestants from each team compete against each other. The television audience and the Coaches decide who remains in the competition. In the end, the winner is determined by the most viewing audience votes, and is revealed during the final show.
