How true is it that Xian Lim will have his new hosting stint?
Rumor has it that actor-host Xian Lim will be the Kapuso host of the singing competition The Voice Kids that was previously aired on ABS-CBN.
It was speculated that the show will transfer to GMA-7 as one of the mentors, Popstar Royalty Sarah Geronimo is also being rumored to transfer to the Kapuso network.
An art card has been circulating on social media just recently showing Sarah, Bamboo, Pops Fernandez, and Julie Anne San Jose as the mentors/judges. Then, it was alleged that Xian Lim will be the host. The logo of GMA was also visible on the art card.
However, based on the PEP write-up of entertainment writer Gorgy Rula, when the management of GMA was asked about the said rumor, the reply was, “Fake news!” Gorgy also said that this speculation surprised the Kapuso management because there is no official announcement yet.
On the other hand, the writer said that according to some people in GMA he asked regarding this matter, the Kapuso network already acquired the franchise of The Voice but most of the people he asked did not answer him.
Gorgy added that there were those who said that they have heard the rumors about the show’s transfer to GMA but it was still unsure if the project pushed through and what unit would handle the production.
“Pero ang ikinaloka nila, meron nang lumabas na si Xian Lim daw ang maghu-host ng The Voice Kids at mananatiling mentor pa rin si Bamboo… at may Sarah Geronimo pa!” the writer shared adding that if the art card is true, the show has a good line up for mentors. However, the writer stressed that the viral art card claiming that Xian Lim will be the host, along with the rumored mentors, was just created by the fans.
