MANILA -- One of the main problems Jason Villanueva and Kendra Aguirre encountered during the rehearsals, as their coach, Sarah Geronimo, pointed out, was they were both reserved, that it felt like they weren't going all out, which was the song -- "The Closer I Get to You," by Robert Flack featuring Donny Hathaway -- demanded.

This even led to Aguirre tearing up, prior to their turn in Saturday's episode of "The Voice Teens 2," sharing how she has yet to find the confidence needed to show emotion through her singing. 

But it all turned out very sweet in the end, with Geronimo praising both of them for being equally talented in terms of singing and the ability to connect with a tune. She even came up with a love team name for the two, joking how well they blended together. 

The pop star, however, eventually went with Aguirre, saying that she has shown a bit more improvement than Villanueva, who was sadly eliminated from the competition. 

The new "The Voice Teens" episode aired on the Kapamilya Channel, which is mainly available through cable providers such as Sky, and was streamed online on YouTube. 

It airs at 7:30 p.m. on Saturdays and 7 p.m. on Sundays.
