PRESS STATEMENT FROM ABS-CBN:
"The top-rating and Twitter-trending singing-reality show The Voice of the Philippines has finally revealed the Top 24 artists from four teams who will compete in the much-awaited Live Shows beginning this Sunday (August 25) and face the decisive verdicts of the coaches and the viewing public.
"Three artists from each team will perform in the first leg of the Live Shows this Sunday where they will perform songs chosen by them and their coaches. Representing their respective teams are Thor Dulay, Cora Dela Cruz, and Jessica Reynoso for coach Apl de Ap; Radha, RJ Dela Fuente, and Darryl Shy for coach Lea Salonga; Junji Arias, Morrisette Amon, and Eva Delos Santos for coach Sarah Geronimo; and Lee Grane, Myk Perez, and Talia Reyes for coach Bamboo.
Team Sarah is composed of Morrisette Amon, Klarisse De Guzman, Yuki Ito, Eva Delos Santos, Junji Arias, and Maki Ricafort.
Team Bamboo is composed of Myk Perez, Talia Reyes, Lee Grane, Paolo Onesa, Isa Fabregas, and Angelique Alcantara.
Team Lea is composed of RJ Dela Fuente, Radha, Mitoy Yonting, Diday Garcellano, Kimpoy Mainit, and Darryl Shy.
"The unique voting scheme for the Live Shows will only allow viewers to send in their votes during commercial breaks—a first on Philippine TV. The voting for each team will open after the performances of the three artists, and will close after a full commercial break. The poll results for all the teams will only be announced at the end of the show.
"The artist from each team who gets the highest percentage of votes will be announced and thus, will be the first one to be saved. The coach will then have to choose who between his or her two remaining artists gets to stay and gets eliminated.
"Before the Live Shows at the Newport Performing Arts Theater, “The Voice of the Philippines” will air the Life Show featuring the artists’ life stories and special performances this Saturday (August 24).
"Whose voices will prove stronger? Which among the artists will be sent home?
"Don’t miss The Voice of the Philippines, every Saturday, 9 PM, and every Sunday, 8:15 PM on ABS-CBN."
