We hope you’re getting ready for the premiere of “La Voz Kids.” Once again, Telemundo brings this amazing show that features young vocalists between the ages of seven and 15 competing for a recording contract and a cash prize to support their education. Music stars Prince Royce, Roberto Tapia, and new addition to the show, Natalia Jiménez, will coach the kids, teaching them better ways to deliver an outstanding performance, how to deal with the nerves and help them keep their minds straight, focused on their goals and encouraging them in every step they make.

Daisy Fuentes and Jorge Bernal, who will host the show, joined Prince Royce, Roberto and Natalia as they held a press conference to promote “La Voz Kids,” premiering this Sunday, March 16 at 8 p.m. on Telemundo. The Sunday night reality show, which reached over 14.5 million total viewers in its first season, will once again give Telemundo’s audience the opportunity to witness how the stars of the future are discovered and developed in three phases of competition: Blind Auditions, Battle Rounds and Live Shows.

During the blind auditions, the celebrity coaches will listen to, but do not view each performance. If impressed by a contestant’s voice, the coach presses a button and his/her chair turns to reveal their team selection. If more than one coach presses their button, the power then shifts to the contestant, who has to choose a coach to work with. If none of the coaches press their button, the contestant is eliminated from the competition.

Once each coach chooses 18 contestants, their team is set, and the battle is on. Coaches then dedicate themselves to developing each contestant, and with the help of acclaimed musical guest mentors, will give advice and share success secrets. Six groups of three contestants, per coach, compete in each battle by singing the same song together in front of a studio audience. Two of the three contestants are eliminated from each battle, leaving 18 total finalists for the live shows.

During the final performance phase of the competition, each week, the top contestants from each team compete against each other. The television audience and the coaches decide who remains in the competition. In the end, the winner is determined by the most viewing audience votes, and is revealed during the final show.

Don’t miss “La Voz Kids” season 2 premiere on Sunday, March 16, at 8 p.m. only on Telemundo.
