Luis Manzano says The Voice Kids Season 3 is a good opportunity for Kim Chiu to explore her talent in hosting.
The Kapamilya actress is joining the hosts of singing talent search in its third season. During the second season, Yeng Constantino served as co-host while Alex Gonzaga was tapped during the first season.
In a short interview during a visit on the set of The Voice Kids, Luis told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other entertainment reporters about The Story of Us actress, “I’m very happy for Kim, unang-una, kasi she gets to explore another facet of the industry.
“Nasanay tayo kay Kim na nagda-drama, nagro-rom-com, sumasayaw.
“Ito, we'll get to see her as a host. We hope that she enjoys her stint with us.
“At sana mas mag-enjoy ang mga televiewers dahil si Kim ay isa sa pinakamakulit na tao sa industriya.”
The popular Kapamilya TV host believes Kim fits the role of TVK host, who will usher young contestants to the stage.
Unlike her hosting style in ASAP, Luis said, “Ito kasi mas personal. Sa ASAP kasi you're talking to the audience through a camera.
“Ito, kinakausap niya 'yong mga kids, especially 'yong role niya.
“Siya 'yong magse-send off. Siya 'yong last person that the kids see before stepping on stage.
“So kailangan mas personal niyang kausapin ang mga bata.
“Sabihin na nating siguro na mas formal ang hosting kapag nagsimula na ang mga live show.
“I can't wait to see kung ano ang maihahain ni Kim para sa amin.”
He further added, “'Yong mga nakikita kay Kim sa rom-com movies niya, times two pa 'yon sa likod ng camera, kung gaano siya kasiyahin.
“That's something that the kids need to see kasi this is already a big competition.
“The fact na nakasama na sila, naku, kakabahan na sila.
“So, 'yong personality ni Kim ang makakatulong sa mga bata right before they step on stage.”
Like other celebrities who try new things in showbiz, Luis said it is expected for Kim to get negative comments about her hosting stint on The Voice Kids, which will begin airing this Saturday, May 28.
“Kahit naman di mag-host si Kim may mangba-bash sa kanya, e.
“I guess that's the part of being Kim Chiu.
“But the fact that she has bashers, it means she's very blessed.
“Her bashers can't enjoy what she gets to enjoy every day,” Luis concluded.
