Broadway star and “The Voice” coach Lea Salonga said that Darren Espanto, “The Voice Kids'” first runner-up, should have been the grand champion instead. This was after he watched Darren’s performance of “Bang Bang” with Popstar Princess Sarah Geronimo during the Globe App Night.
Lea posted her reaction on Twitter. Netizens immediately reacted to Lea’s tweet, with one saying that Lyca Gairanod, the grand champion, may feel bad about what she just said.
But Lea noted that her opinion does not take away the fact that Lyca is also good. However, “he [Darren] just continues to impress me as a singer and as a human being.”
Darren and Lyca are part of Team Sarah when they joined “The Voice Kids.”
