Kai sang Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” as her audition piece.
Lea Salonga said “Yung song na ‘yan kasi, napaka-familiar sa lahat nang mga nandito ngayon. So, you sat there with a ukulele, and it was just perfection. Maganda eh, malamig, malamig pakinggan. ‘Yung boses mo, masarap sa tenga. So sana ‘yung team ko ‘yung piliin mo.”
Apl.de.ap said “Kai, I just want to say, your voice is, there’s nobody like it. I like you to be on my team.”
Sarah Geronimo said “Kai, ‘yung klase ng style, hindi the usual na bumibirit, powerful ‘yung voice, pero, ‘yun ‘yung kailangan natin eh. Gusto kong yakapin ‘yung chance na ‘yun na i-angat ka naman, ‘yung mga artist na tulad mo. Sana bigyan mo ako ng chance.”
Bamboo said “Who has been crazy enough, brave enough, to bring artists like yourself forward to battles, forward to the semis. People say, ‘Hindi ‘to bumabagay, it doesn’t fit sort of a spectrum.’ Sa akin, it doesn’t matter. Ako, it’s about artistry, it’s about growth over prize. Ako lang, I think I’ll be a good coach, right, Dad?”
