Mexican pop star Paulina Rubio has been named as one of three vocal coaches for "La Voz Kids," the kids-and-teens singing competition and Spanish-language spinoff of "The Voice," which will air this spring on the Telemundo network.

Rubio has prior experience with the global-juggernaut program. She was a judge last year on "La Voz Mexico," one of several Latin regional versions of "The Voice" that pits youngsters against one another in a sort of musical version of "The Hunger Games," only not quite as bloody.

"Having [Paulina Rubio] as a coach in this first-of-a-kind show is a true honor for us,” said Daniel Cubillo, vice president of content development (non-scripted) at Telemundo Media.  “As a talented child singer herself, she is in a unique position to share with the kids her experience in their journey to make their dreams come true."

Two more voice coaches are to be named in coming weeks, so start lobbying Telemundo and your favorite Spanish-language stars. Maybe Juan Gabriel? Paquita la del Barrio?
