Let’s take a look at each kid from the different teams. 

Team Sarah

Zephanie Odhene “Zeph” Dimaranan, 12

Clear, sweet vocals with an undercurrent of power – that’s Zephanie. Bamboo and Sarah both turned for the little girl, with both of them noting that the quality of her voice, her youthfulness and sweetness, made her special. 

Goosebumps moment: Sing-Off

 

Zephanie brought her A-game to the Sing-Offs, stunning with an upbeat cover of “Problem,” even getting Bamboo to bust a move. The song showed off her considerable range, plus a new side to Zephanie’s personality as a young artist. 

Kyle John “Kyle” Echarri, 10

Impressing with a cover of “Night Changes,” Kyle had coaches Bamboo and Sarah turning for him after his blind audition. The young singer does battle nerves in some of his performances, but Kyle’s got raw talent and plenty of charisma, and there’s a lot to expect from this young crooner. 

Goosebumps moment: Sing-Off

 

Supportive big brother Kyle channeled love for his younger sister to deliver a nice cover of “Just The Way You Are” by Bruno Mars, the number that had coach Sarah choosing him to proceed to the next round. 

Team Lea 

Esang de Torres, 8

This 3-chair turner had judges trying to win her over in various ways – Sarah bust out her The Voice of the Philippines trophy from the previous season, while Coach Lea told her an impromptu fairytale. The little lady seemed to be a natural fit for Broadway star Lea – as she proved with a sweetly soaring rendition of “Home” from The Wiz
Goosebumps moment: Blind audition
 
Since then, she’s had plenty of strong moments on the show, but none more affecting than her blind audition, which had Coach Lea hitting the button and turning in shock as she recognized her “mini-me” – the small girl who had sung ala a little Lea on It’s Showtime
Reynan Dal-Anay, 11

Reynan had all 3 judges asking him to join their team, eventually choosing coach Lea. The young boy has also been wearing traditional Manobo attire during his performances to inspire and represent members of his tribe. 
Goosebumps moment: Sing-Off
 
Maganda nga ‘yung kwento ng buhay mo, pero ito ang katotohanan: you’re here because you’re good,” Lea told him after his Sing-Off. (The story of your life is beautiful, but this is the truth – you’re here because you’re good.) Reynan’s cover of “Amazing Grace” showed off his range and vocal control, with Reynan sliding easily into both low and high notes – then hitting the hardest one at the end with maturity and confidence beyond his years. 
Team Bamboo 
Sassa Dagdag, 12

Sassa first caught Bamboo’s attention with her distinct, throaty voice that lent an appealing texture and a sense of fullness to her performances. Under Bamboo’s coaching, Sassa has further harnessed her vocal power, tapping into the power of a tender, softly delivered note. 
Goosebumps moment: After her blind audition, singing “Le Vie En Rose” 
 
Sassa made a strong impression as a 3-chair turner during the blinds, most especially with a follow-up performance of “La Vie En Rose” at the urging of the judges (skip to 2:42 to hear it). This quiet cover had coach Bamboo offering her his scarf, the accessory he gives all the kids on his team. Sassa took the challenge. 

Elha Nympha, 11

Elha has beat out a number of very good singers on team Bamboo, including charming Paul Abellana, fierce Martina Luis, delicate Sim Teves, and smooth crooner Benedict Inciong for a final spot in Bamboo’s top 2. Elha’s shown plenty of growth throughout the different stages – and with each performance, she demonstrates a unique emotional connection to the music, and of course she’s able to hit those notes, too.

Goosebumps moment: Sing-Off

 

Elha charmed with her blind audition, a cover of “Vision of Love” – but she really came into her own in the Sing-Off round. After singing “Natutulog Ba Ang Diyos,” Coach Bamboo told her that this performance was her best yet.
