Who made it in? Find out who is on each team. The Battle Rounds kicks-off next week on Telemundo with 54 contestants. Team Yankee, Team Nathala and Team Pedro have their 18 vocalists ready to rumble.
Last night, the 15-year-old boy, from Houston, Texas, brought in the Latin flavor singing “Bailando” by Enrique Iglesias. His energetic performance made everyone dance and the three coaches turned their chairs for him. But Castillo picked Team Yankee for the competition.
Jesus Manuel Esquer, from Heber, California, sang “La Puerta Negrga” by Los Tigres del Norte with elegance. He was so amazing that made the coaches fight for him. He went with Team Nathalia.
Jorge Cruz, from Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico, performed “Tres Palabras” by Luis Miguel. He actually participated on La Voz Kids last year but was not chosen. But things were different this year. The Coaches turned at nearly the end of his performance, moving him to tears and the 13-year-old said: “Thank you, thank you!,” He chose Coach Team Yankee.
Then Danny Pena, from Queens, New York, showed up and sang “Limbo” by Daddy Yankee. And the reggatonero gave him last team cap and completed his team of 18 contestants.
Jacqueline Collazo, from West Wendover, Nevada, performed “Que Nadie Sepa mi Sufrir” by Lila Downs. Natalia Jimenez was the only coach to turn and told her: “You have a huge voice!” Then she turned to Yankee and Pedro and asked them: “Are you guys deaf?”.
Giselle Lopez, from El Paso, Texas, sang Cenizas” by Shaila Durcal. Daddy Yankee turned first, followed by Pedro, who turned during the last note of her performance; and to his surprise she sang to the Mexican artist choosing him as her coach.
Estefani Lopez, from Riverside, California, who performed “Si tu También te Vas” by Lola Beltrán, chose Pedro Fernandez as a coach.
Ambar Rivera, from Vega Baja, Puerto Rico, chose “Suerte” by Paty Cantu. Fernandez and Jimenez turned their chairs for her, but the young singer had a very special surprise. Her sister, from her father’s side and whom she had not yet met, was there to support her. Rivera chose Team Pedro.
Angie Vasquez, from Lindenhurst, Illinois, of Peruvian descent, performed “I Will Never Let You Down” by Rita Ora. She was the last voice to make it and become part of Team Pedro.
