FIRST LOOK: Turning chairs on 'The Voice of the Philippines'

With less than a month before its anticipated premiere, the Philippine edition of "The Voice" is sharing a peek at the big, red turning chairs which have made the contest format a global franchise.

In a trailer released Tuesday on the Facebook page of "The Voice of the Philippines," the four superstar mentors -- Lea Salonga, Sarah Geronimo, Francisco "Bamboo" Mañalac and Allan "" Pineda -- are seen "turning" in their chairs to face the singing hopefuls.

Each team's number of members will be trimmed down, however, as "The Voice of the Philippines" start the "Battle Rounds."

After mentoring and training their artists, each mentor will pit two of their own team members in a "sing-off." The winning contestants will advance to the next round -- the live performance shows.

Meanwhile, on micro-blogging site Twitter Wednesday, Salonga addressed comparisons between the appearances of the chairs as seen in the local edition of "The Voice" and its counterparts in over 50 other countries, specifically the popular United States version.
The same red chairs, as seen in the United Kingdom edition of "The Voice," were also recently the subject of headlines when online publication The Sun reported about a "wacky rule" of the multinational franchise.

Set to air in June on ABS-CBN, "The Voice of the Philippines" will feature as hosts celebrity sisters Toni and Alex Gonzaga, and former "Pinoy Big Brother" housemate Robi Domingo.
