Telemundo Premieres New Season of Hit Series 'La Voz Kids'

Miami, FL

Blind Auditions begin during the premiere gala featuring for the first time ever a spectacular performance by season three winning team, Coach Natalia Jimenez and Jonael Santiago.

Coaches Daddy Yankee, Natalia Jimenez and Pedro Fernandez kick-off the Blind Auditions Sunday, April 17 at 8pm/7c in a one-of-a-kind premiere gala for the new season of Telemundo’s highly anticipated reality series, La Voz Kids. From the main stage at Universal Orlando Resort, hosts Jorge Bernal and Patricia Manterola will unveil the spectacular opening night that will include an outstanding performance by season three’s winning team Coach Natalia Jimenez and Jonael Santiago. Talented kids from all over the United States and Puerto Rico will be ready to impress the celebrity Coaches with their voices for a chance to be part of this year’s singing competition that gives viewers the opportunity to witness how the stars of the future are discovered and developed.

La Voz Kids features three stages of the singing competition, including Blind Auditions, Battle Rounds, and Final Phase. During the Blind Auditions, the Coaches decisions are based solely on voice and not on looks. Once the teams are set, the Battle Rounds begin, where the Coaches will dedicate themselves to developing their teams. New this season, the Battles Rounds will include a ‘Wild Card’ component, where the audience will have the opportunity to save one of their favorite contestants per Coach. The winners of the ‘Wild Card’ will be revealed in the first Gala of the Final Phase. During the Final Phase of the competition, the television audience will continue to vote, and along with the Coaches, decide who will stay in the competition and who will go home.  In the end, only one kid is selected by the viewing audience as the  winner of La Voz Kids, receiving  a recording contract with Universal Music and grand prize of $50,000. The winner’s family will also be awarded a 2016 Nissan Rogue.
