Eleven-year-old Joshua Oliveros, dubbed “Hopeful Son ng Antique,” won the 3rd Grand Championship of singing reality show “The Voice Kids’” final showdown on August 28, Sunday, which aired via and TFC IPTV.

He bested Antonetthe Tismo of Team Sharon and Justin Alva of Team Bamboo in the program’s final showdown, after garnering 38.07% of votes from the viewers.

On Saturday’s performance, August 27, everyone was impressed by his performance of “Mangarap Ka” during the upbeat song rounds, and his performance with Coach Lea Salonga of the song “Nais Ko” during the duet round. During the final stage competition, he captivated the viewers during the power ballad rounds with his performance of “Salamat,” an original hit by Yeng Constantino.

Oliveros was Coach Lea’s first kid artist winner of the competition. But more than anything, he was happy to be able to win the house for his family because his father just took the risk, brought him to Manila to join the auditions, without a home to live in nor a job to sustain them.

He took home P1 million cash, a fashion package and P1 million worth of trust fund from a clothing brand, a two-year recording contract from MCA Music, Inc., a business package from a local franchisee, and a house and lot from a real estate company.

“I’m very happy because I got the house, the money, and the trophy,” he emotionally said during an interview after the competition. “This will be a very big help to my family,” he added.

Coach Lea, the only coach who turned around for Joshua during blind audition, has nothing but good words for Joshua, who she admired for his discipline and dedication in the competition.

“You don’t have to worry about this boy, because he listens, he delivers, he’s wonderful. He digests the music before it comes out of his mouth. Talagang nakikinig sa rehearsals, very focused,” she said. She then thanked everyone who believed and supported her artist.

The third season of “The Voice Kids,” hosted by Luis Manzano, Kim Chiu, and Robi Domingo, was a phenomenal hit on Philippine television and was the most watched weekend TV program in the country during its run.

Viewers nationwide also tuned it to the two-night final showdown as it garnered a national TV rating of 39% last Saturday (Aug 27) and 43.3% last Sunday (Aug 28), according to data from Kantar Media (local TV ratings measurement).

Top-rating singing competition “The Voice Kids” is back to give young singers a shot at stardom and help them achieve their dreams for their family as another season begins on Saturday (May 28) worldwide via The Filipino Channel (TFC) worldwide.

In its third season, the best singing competition for kids will again try to search for the next singing superstar with the help of its superstar coaches: Broadway Diva Lea Salonga, rock superstar Bamboo, and new coach Megastar Sharon Cuneta.

“Our Top 4 last season was pretty crazy. It’s like, where do we go from here? Now, we’re turning for special kids who have immense potential for improvement. Our standard is pretty much the same – you got to have something we can absolutely work with and we have to be able to see that you have the potential to be the champion of this competition,” said coach Lea.

Coach Bamboo, meanwhile, will try to score a back-to-back win after her artist Elha Nympha was named grand champion last season. “I’ll try. I can’t control things but I’ll try my best. That’s my goal – to pull out the best from every child and see which of them reaches the finals. Here in the country, we have a lot of great singers. But a kid or an adult who can connect, that has a heart and character, is rare.”

But Sharon is not letting the two coaches get their way easily, as she is ready to pull out all the stops for the competition. “It’s my first time to coach here. Everyone all over the world knows ‘The Voice.’ It is prestigious. Just to be part of this family gives you a lot of extra points. I am praying that the champ comes from my camp. I’ll really give it all I’ve got – my 38 years of experience.”

This Saturday, the blind auditions – the first part of the competition – will kick off with the coaches using new tricks to try to woo young artists to join their respective teams.

“So far we have found some amazing, talented boys and girls. They’re not just vocally wonderful but they’ve got some really interesting personalities, which have been entertaining for all of us,” shared coach Lea.

The chemistry among the three coaches is also evident in their banter.

“I am so grateful to God for the chemistry. There was no way to find out if there was such a thing among us until we started taping. It seems like the audience laugh a lot, we laugh a lot, we have a lot of fun bantering. It’s a great to be working with two super pros, experts, and icons. I am so honored to be in such great company,” Sharon said.

“It feels great. It feels at home. Ang sarap ng pakiramdam especially with these kids I got recently. It’s been great and fun so far working with Sharon. It’s fun for me because it’s something different. It’s a change, and change is always good,” added Bamboo.

Meanwhile, the third season of “The Voice Kids” will be led by the country’s premier host Luis Manzano, reality star-turned-host Robi Domingo, and the newest addition to the family, “chinita princess” Kim Chiu.

As they join forces, they will guide every young artist in every stage of the competition to help them achieve their dreams.
