Bida Voice: Shy Singing Competition is a "blind" vocal competition that features unidentified amateur singers who are judged based solely on voice and not on looks. The segment premiered on 8 February 2021 and concluded on 19 June 2021.

Contestants of the segment perform on a darkened stage with strategic lighting that reveal only their silhouettes. Their faces, names, and other personal details remain unrevealed throughout the competition. Instead, each participant is only given a love-themed nickname. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, guest celebrity judges film remotely from their homes via Zoom video conference.[1]

Bida Voice somewhat shares a similar concept as the "Blind Auditions" of the international reality television singing competition franchise The Voice.

Anya Mariah Lauriño, the "Darling Daughter" of Tondo, Manila, was hailed as the grand winner of the competition. Her winning song was the 2015 single "Flashlight" by English singer Jessie J.

Overview[]

Auditions[]

The singing competition is open to amateur singers of all ages, genders, and backgrounds. Aspirants can send in their audition videos along with their contact information to an email address provided by the noontime show. Those who meet the requirements are selected to perform live onstage at APT Studios.

Daily rounds[]

The daily rounds occur two days each week on Mondays and Tuesdays. Jose Manalo, Wally Bayola, Paolo Ballesteros, Ryan Agoncillo, Pia Guanio, Maine Mendoza, and Alden Richards typically serve as the studio hosts of the segment.

Each episode features two anonymous contestants who are first interviewed by the hosts about their "hugot" love stories, but without revealing too much information about themselves. The contestants then perform their song choices live onstage at APT Studios.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the judges of the competition film remotely from their homes via Zoom video conference. The regular panel of judges includes Eat Bulaga! host Allan K, voiceover artist Inka Magnaye, international performer Anna Fegi, and acoustic singer Ice Seguerra. The criteria for judging are as follows:

  • 60% – Voice quality (Tamang hugot ng tono)
  • 40% – Style and performance (Pinusuan ang rendition ng kanta)

The anonymous pianist of Eat Bulaga! dubbed as the Shy Singer provides the live musical accompaniment for all of the segment's performances and is also a judge of the competition.
