It seems that as soon as we began, we’re now officially about to end. From Blind Auditions, Battles and Knockouts to the Live Shows, this inaugural season of “The Voice Teens” is an adventure that just flew right by. I can’t believe that we’re about to say goodbye to one another, our audiences, and the teens who have stepped up and wowed us week after week.

We have four incredible artists preparing to sing for one more weekend. For Team Sharon, Jeremy Glinoga (Los Angeles, California); Team Bamboo, Isabela Vinzon (Mexico, Pampanga); Team Sarah, Jona Soquite (Davao City); and for Team Lea, Mica Becerro (Placer, Surigao del Norte).

These are special artists who are very different from one another, so for sure our audiences will be treated to these teens’ preferred genres. It’ll be a nail-biter. I don’t think I’ll be getting much sleep until Sunday night.

The teens have three rounds to complete over two days: On Saturday, each artist will sing with his or her respective team coach, as well as perform an up-tempo number. On Sunday, they will each perform a big ballad in the hopes of getting votes.

After the final voting section has been closed and votes have been tabulated, a brand-new champion will be crowned, and awarded the prizes available for this season, which include cash, a new home, musical instruments and a recording contract.

Preparing for all of this is never easy on either the artist or the coach as the ramp up to the season finale is very busy. Without a doubt, we’re all feeling the pressure of the moment, as all of us want our respective artists to win.

So, who is it going to be? Tune in on Saturday and Sunday to find out!

Might be a good idea to express my thanks, before we get caught up in the preparation …

To our tireless executive staff, producers, director, choreographer, dancers, musical directors, musicians, backup singers, arrangers, writers, choirs, piano movers, lighting designers, makeup artists, hairdressers, wardrobe stylists, technical crew, stage managers, sound people, researchers and cameramen—how all of you make our show work like a well-oiled machine is a wonder to me, and a credit to each of you.

We are fortunate to be in your able and supportive hands.

To Bamboo, Sarah and Sharon, it has been an honor serving beside you as a coach this season. You are artists I respect and admire.

To all the teens who tried out for the show, thank you for sharing not just your talent, but also yourselves with us. To the kids who put up with the rigmarole of Battles until Live Shows, thank you for coming along for the ride. You have been such an honor to coach, listen to and get to know.

And finally, to all the fans of “The Voice” who have been with us from our maiden season in 2013 until today, it’s thanks to you all that we’re still here. For following us in social media, for sharing your comments and for supporting these young kids at the beginning of their careers, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Please keep on supporting them. They’re a talented bunch of young people, and very good human beings, as well.

OK, let’s get this show on the road! To our four teens still standing, I wish you all the best of luck.
