And you won't believe this: The Voice Kids 2 artists who advanced to the finals do not include a single artist from Team Sarah Geronimo. Shocking isn't it?
For a few minutes, I was in shock, trying to convince myself that it was indeed the official results and no one from the always strong team of Coach Sarah made it to The Voice Kids Season 2 Grand Finals, which is happening already on Saturday, August 29 and Saturday, August 30, 2015.
Last season's Top 2 winners - Lyka Gairanod and Darren Espanto - were both from Team Sarah, and those for the biggies - The Voice Philippines Season 1 and Season 2 - had the 1st Runner Up (Klarisse De Guzman) and Grand Winner (Jason Dy) respectively coming from Sarah G's team.
What happened? Did Team Sarah give chance to others? Or did Coach Sarah make the wrong choice of choosing Kyle Echarri and Zephanie Dimaranan over Francis Lim and Gian Ale during the Sing-Offs?
Didn't the Popsters, who are so passionate when it comes to voting, give all-out support to Sarah's artists this season? Didn't the fans of Lyka, Darren, Klarisse and Jason help the team? Or perhaps the other teams are just really stronger this time?
Was there a cheating involved, since Team Sarah artists got really low votes, only 16% combined?
I have too many questions. I'm actually rooting for no one after my 3 faves didn't make it to the semis (Luke Alford, Altair Aguelo and Gian Ale), but my heart still breaks for Sarah G, 'coz I was still expecting AT LEAST ONE from her team to get through.
But moving on...Team Lea has the strongest chance of having her 2 artists end up as the Top 2 winners this season, just like Lyka and Darren from Team Sarah last year.
