Oh my goodness, thank you, thank you and thank you all so much for the support you’ve shown to “The Voice: Kids” over the weekend! We received the incredible news that the show’s ratings went through the roof (33.3 percent on Saturday, 35.8 percent on Sunday). You guys, the fans of the show, made this possible. Again, thank you, thank you and thank you! Everyone on Team Voice is very grateful!
