"After much deliberation, napag-usapan ni Joniver at ng programa na (Joniver and the show agreed) it's best for him not to continue with the show due to personal reasons for Joniver," said Bamboo after the Knockout rounds. View the full results of the Knockout rounds here

Bamboo went to the home of eliminated contestant Rita Martinez to tell her that she was taking Joniver's place in the live shows. 

Joniver and fellow teammate Karlo Mojica beat out Rita for a spot in the live show rounds – so this is a second chance for Rita, a new shot at the finals.

Meanwhile, Joniver reacted to the announcement on Facebook, expressing his disappointment in the development. Here's what he wrote:

Hours later, he posted a shorter message regarding viewers' speculations about his departure from the show.

"This is for those who are saying I broke some rule or did something para magka problema yung show. Post it here. Just make sure your facts are straight and speaks for itself at hindi nabasa nyo lang at narinig kung kanino."

The Voice of the Philippines has yet to issue a reaction to Joniver's posts.
