Paulina Rubio judges kids' version of 'The Voice'
MIAMI (AP) - A children's version of "The Voice" is arriving to the U.S. "en español" with Mexican pop star Paulina Rubio as one of the coaches.
Telemundo Media named Rubio on Monday as the first of three music coaches on the network's upcoming singing competition "La Voz Kids," slated to premiere in the spring on Telemundo.
The new spinoff of the hit singing competition will feature 7- to 14-year-old contestants. The winner will receive a recording contract with Universal Music and a scholarship.
Rubio already coached "La Voz... México", the edition of the show produced in her home country.
The singer said she looks forward to a new format "that will open the door to the new generation of artists."
The other two coaches were soon to be announced, the network said.
