MANILA – Sarah Geronimo is no longer coming back as a coach in the third season of “The Voice Kids.”

She revealed this on Monday during her contract signing with ABS-CBN, where she inked another two-year deal.

“Sasabihin ko lang na gusto ko lang pong bumalik sa ‘ASAP,’ talagang 'yung mag-concentrate naman sa growth ko bilang artist. Kasi I feel na bilang coach, parang lagi ko nga pong sinasabi na role-playing talaga 'yung pagiging coach. 'Yung para bang alam ko lahat, kapag nagbibigay ako ng opinion, para bang ang galing-galing ko. Medyo naghe-hesitate pa rin po ako doon,” she said.

Geronimo, however, hinted that she may possibly come back in the TV competition’s future seasons.

“Sobrang masaya naman talaga and fun 'yung experience, especially doing it with the kids. 'Yun talaga ang the best. Baka po next season, why not, kung gusto pa rin nila ako maging coach?” she said.

When asked what she wants to tell the young aspiring singers who dream of having her as a coach, Geronimo said: “Ang mga bata naman basta para sa pangarap nila, sasasabak sila. I’m 100% sure na magugustuhan po ng mga tao kung sino man po ang uupo sa red chair.”

Refusing to reveal who will be replacing her, Geronimo assured those who will audition that they will have fun and learn a lot from the new mentor.

Meanwhile, Geronimo thanked VIVA Artists Agency and ABS-CBN for understanding her decision regarding her career.

“Gusto ko magpasalamat sa ABS na talagang nandoon pa rin 'yung relationship, na gusto po nila akong manatili sa kumpanya po nila. And of course, sa manager ko na napaka-understanding at supportive sa mga naging decision ko sa career ko,” she said.

As to what her fans could expect in the coming months, Geronimo said: “Definitely po hindi ako magteteleserye kasi sobra po akong napapagod, 'yung boses ko. Hopefully po makakakuha ako ng pelikula na talagang mai-in love ako, mai-inspire akong gawin, hindi 'yung parang, ‘Sige, gawin natin para lang may pelikula ka.’”

Is the Darna role included in the projects she signed up for?

“Hindi eh. Hindi talaga po ako para doon. Pang-performance lang 'yung [nag-costume ako ng Wonder Woman sa ASAP],” she said.
