La Voz Kids is an American singing competition television series broadcast on Telemundo. It is based on the reality singing competition The Voice Kids, created by Dutch television producer John de Mol as spin-off of The Voice franchise. It premiered on May 5, 2013.

Overview[edit]

In 2013, American Spanish-language network Telemundo (a subsidiary of NBCUniversal Television Group) introduced a children's version of The Voice in Spanish called La Voz Kids. It featured Spanish-speaking American children from 7 to 15 years of age. Prizes include $50,000 cash for their education and a recording contract with Universal Music Group. The show debuted on May 5, 2013, and is hosted by Jorge Bernal (from ¡Suelta La Sopa!) and Daisy Fuentes. The coaches in season one were Prince Royce, Paulina Rubio, and Roberto Tapia. The first season aired 13 episodes with the season finale airing on July 28, 2013.[1][2]

Season two saw Natalia Jiménez replace Paulina Rubio as one of the coaches. The other coaches and hosts remained the same.[3]

For the show's third season, Daddy Yankee and Pedro Fernandez took Tapia and Royce's place as the new coaches along with season two veteran Natalia Jiménez.[4]

At their 2015 Upfronts, Telemundo announced that La Voz Kids would return for a fourth season, with all three Season 3 coaches returning.[5]

After season 4 ended, Telemundo had yet to decide on a fifth season.[6] However, the channel didn't make a final decision, thus putting La Voz Kids on hiatus. As of 2019, Telemundo has yet to reboot the show.
