The Voice of the Philippines set looks CHEAP


I know it’s all about the voice but just look at that set. There is no production value whatsoever… It’s simply atrocious! My eyes were bleeding while watching the show. It even came to a point where I don’t even want to look at the TV Screen anymore. I just wanted to listen to the performer and the judges’ comments while reading tweets about the show.

Come on ABS-CBN this is supposed to be a franchise of The Voice! Please try to at least be at par with the versions of other countries in Asia. Your audience is changing! We demand quality and better production value especially with a show as big as this!

Still don’t get what I mean?  Look at these videos.




The saving grace of the show are the judges especially Ms. Lea Salonga. She was so funny and so energetic fighting for her favorite artists. Apl.de.Ap was also a delight to watch with his Pinoy / Amboy way of getting his favorites to choose him. Surprisingly Sarah G was very careful in choosing who she wants to bring in to her team. I think it’s wise since it’s just the first set of contestants. Bamboo, who I had the chance to meet in person for a shoot for a magazine cover, made a risk by getting Deb (which I don’t personally like) but I believe in you Mr. Bamboo.

I don’t know if I like Toni Gonzaga as the host. I just feel that her hosting style is very similar to how she hosts Pinoy Big Brother. I like Toni but I wish it was someone else who’s not yet associated with any other big show in the past.  Dunno if it’s just me but when Toni interviews a contestant after his / her  performance, it feels like she’s talking to someone who just got evicted from the Big Brother House.   As for the two other hosts (Alex Gonzaga and Robi Domingo); I don’t feel they are connecting with the show. They look awkward especially that part where they were reporting outside the studio.

The Voice Chair US

Overall, the pilot episode of The Voice of the Philippines was a success but I do have some suggestions:

  1. Please add more lights! This is the voice not S.O.C.O.
  2. Improve on the camera shots please. Have the production team watch the US or the UK versions and learn from them.
  3. The walk to the holding area looks cheap with the faded grey paint and the door to the viewing area for the family looks terrible.
  4. The stage is too small and too dark
  5. The chairs are just plain ugly! A far cry from the original and makes the show look cheap. To those who keep on defending the show saying it’s about the voice and not the set, I have news for you. The show aside from the talent is known for those iconic chairs! Look at the photo above.
  6. Lessen the number of commercial gaps. It’s irritating to watch one contestant and go straight to a commercial
  7. Why is there no sound when the chair turns?  Turn up the volume guys!  Where is the “I WANT YOU” on the chairs?
  8. What’s up with the paper and pen on the judges’ tables?
  9. Lastly, please don’t make the show into a Soap Opera we already have a lot of those.

    All your comments were valid, but with the last, I think that can’t be evaded anymore. Filipinos really love drama. We are probably one of the most emotional races in the world. Oh well, without those ’emotion’, we won’t be different from other Western performers who are at times very technical. Let us just hope they will look into all your suggestions and improve the show as it goes along… 🙂

      Agree! These are my constructive feedback about the show. ABS-CBN is a good network but they need to understand that Filipinos are changing and we expect them to deliver.

    I like Sarah but last night there were lots of MMK moments that threw me off. It’s like I’m watching an extension of MMK.

    Yeah, you’re right! Sets, stages, and production numbers of TV stations in other countries especially US and UK are made with large amount of thinking, even graphics and transitions are epic! Improve ABS!
