The second season of Telemundo's highly rated singing competition, "La Voz Kids," heads into "Battles" next Sunday, April 27th at 8pm/7 CT, following last's night selection of the remaining eight voices. 54 kids, 18 for each #TeamRoyce, #TeamTapia and #TeamNatalia, are set to battle in the next phase of the competition. Coaches Prince Royce, Roberto Tapia and Natalia Jimenez will now dedicate themselves to developing their teams with the help of guest mentors Yandel, Diana Reyes and Kany Garcia, respectively. These Latin music stars will share secrets of their success, give advice to the contestants, and nurture their bourgeoning talent. Battles are comprised of three contestants from one team singing the same song together on stage. Each Battle culminates with that group's Coach choosing which performer will move forward to the final phase.
Each team is now complete, with 18 contestants per Coach. The eight final voices, added in last night's episode, are:
#TeamRoyce, was the first to complete 18 voices for its team, adding two new ones:
YORGELIS WILLIAMS, 14 years old, from Dorchester, Massachusetts. This charismatic Dominican girl put a lot of "rhythm" in her performance, conquering both Tapia and Royce. She cried with excitement as she chose #TeamRoyce.
DOROTHY MILARY, 13 years old, from Caguas, Puerto Rico, got the three Coaches to Turn their chairs and give her a standing ovation. After an intense struggle between the Coaches, she went for Royce, who considered her "one of the best voices in the competition."
#TeamTapia added its last three voices:
GILMARIE VILLANUEVA, 15 years old, from Arecibo, Puerto Rico. She considers it a "blessing" being able to participate in the competition, and the support of her family is instrumental in realizing her dream. Her powerful voice impressed the Coaches, ending up with #TeamTapia.
JESHUA VASQUEZ, 14 years old, from Aguada, Puerto Rico. He considers himself a mature and responsible kid, whose dream is to become an orchestra director. He got all the Coaches to dance with his performance and wept with emotion when all three of them turned their chairs.
JASMIN SILLERO, 14 years old, from La Joya, Texas. She likes Regional Mexican music and considers her grandparents instrumental in her love of music. Tapia turned during the last second of her presentation. She couldn't contain her joy to be part of the competition.
#TeamNatalia added her final three voices:
SAMANTHA TISCARENO, 11 years old, from Rancho Santa Fe, California, of Mexican origin. She comes from a close family that loves to sing. The three Coaches turned but she decided on Natalia, who couldn't hide her joy to have her join her team.
ABEL GONZALEZ, 14 years old, from Miami, Florida. This Cuban boy considers himself polite, loving and someone who values the important things in life. Natalia was the only one to Turn and said, "I want your voice."
AIMEE MIRANDA, 13 years old, from Newburgh, New York, of Ecuadorian origin. This girl, who enjoys writing poems and songs, has dreamt of becoming a great artist since an early age. Natalia and Tapia both turned, ending with Natalia.
