MANILA, Philippines – Singer-actress Sarah Geronimo tested her rocker contestants Junji Arias and Dave Lamar by giving them the Queen classic “Bohemian Rhapsody” as the Battle Round of “The Voice of the Philippines” continued on Sunday.
“It’s a test of musicality, a test of control, a test of a lot of things,” fellow coach Lea Salonga said of the performance.
Singer Gary Valenciano, who is helping Geronimo with her team, praised both contestants. “Kung sa energy, the energy of Dave is up there, sinabayan mo si Junji, and you did exactly what you were supposed to do. May character ang boses niyong dalawa. I would like to leave the decision talaga to Coach Sarah,” he said.
Geronimo eventually chose Arias over Lamar.
“Talagang lumaban ka at na-appreciate ko ‘yun talaga,” she told Lamar.
