MANILA -- Thirteen-year-old Kyle Bernido earned a spot in the Sing Offs of "The Voice Kids" as one of Team Sarah's Top 6 contestants.

In the Sunday episode of the ABS-CBN talent show, Bernido faced off with fellow three-chair turner Khen Lobaton, and 12-year-old Rica Ito.

Coach Sarah Geronimo picked Lady Gaga's "Telephone" for the group, reminding the girls to "feel" the message of the song and add some "swag" into their performance.

After the Battle rounds, Coach Bamboo commended all the contestants, picking Lobaton for the Sing Off.

Coach Lea Salonga, on the other hand, picked Bernido, admiring her powerful voice and the "angas" in her performance.

Geronimo admitted that she will be making a difficult decision, as all three contestants were excellent.

"Ano ba 'yan, kailangan kong mamili," she said, before announcing Bernido as her choice.
