MANILA - Not one, not two, but four hosts will join the highly anticipated new season of "The Voice of the Philippines" that will premiere on October 26.
A nearly one-minute teaser televised on Friday introduced Toni Gonzaga and Luis Manzano as the main hosts of the program, with Alex Gonzaga and Robi Domingo as V Reporters.
Manzano and Alex Gonzaga co-hosted "The Voice Kids" early this year. Toni Gonzaga was the original host of the first adults edition. Domingo was also the first season's V Reporter, along with Alex Gonzaga.
Returning as coaches are Lea Salonga, Bamboo Manalac, Sarah Geronimo and Allan "apl.de.ap" Pineda Lindo.
The Black Eyed Peas member did not join "The Voice Kids," which, as in the global format, only had three coaches.
In last year's top-rating debut season of the show, Draybers vocalist Mitoy Yonting clinched the title, making Salonga the first winning coach of "The Voice" in the Philippines.
