On your mark, get set, go: fans across the country and Latin America are eagerly awaiting this Sunday’s episode of “La Voz Kids” on Telemundo, where judges Paulina Rubio, Prince Royce and Roberto Tapia will face off and compete for the most talented voices in the very last and final round of blind auditions.
The reality show – shown on NBC sister network Telemundo – is in the hold-your-breath stage, where judges will do their best to convince young talent that their team is the one to join. Once the blind auditions are over (last chance to get the best talent!, the judges will develop their team’s talent with the help of celebrity coaches – Rubio has already invited Luis Fonsi, while Frankie J and Olga Tañon are Team Prince Royce and Roberto Tapia, respectively – and go to battle in several rounds of sing-offs as they vie for a recording contract just like on NBC’s “The Voice.”
But this is one show where Latinos are the star, both at the judge’s table and as contestants, who are all between the ages of 7 and 14. And music talent show seems to be resonating with Hispanic audiences: as the last week’s episode was the season’s highest rated to date with more than 2 million viewers.
Will you be tuning in?
