MANILA - After "The Voice Kids," Bamboo Manalac is preparing for the next blind auditions of the adults edition of the talent search this September.

This time, Manalac said he will try to be less emotional as a coach who, by the dictates of the show format, is compelled to routinely eliminate talents in his team until a winner is chosen through text votes.

The rock star laughed at the term "iyakin" describing his emotional moments in the last two seasons of ABS-CBN's "The Voice." He said he just can't help the outburst, more so if it involves young talents.

Manalac is returning with Lea Salonga and Sarah Geronimo as coaches. The show's producers have yet to confirm the return of Allan "" Pineda as the fourth coach. Manalac, likewise, is clueless about the identity of the new coach.

But he said whoever is signed up, his team is prepared to battle with other competing teams.

Manalac talked about the talent show Thursday on the sidelines of his launch as the new endorser of Jag. He is set to leave for Australia at the end of the month to do a video shoot for the garments company, which also supports "The Voice of the Philippines."

Manalac will also collaborate in the creation of new clothing designs.

Also in the singer's long-term plans is putting up his own talent management company.
