Wisin and Yandel on the hunt for the best voice in Mexico

Mexico City, July 2 : Puerto Rico reggaeton duo Wisin and Yandel are the first entertainers to be confirmed as judges for the third edition of the singing competition reality show "La Voz" (The Voice), the Televisa network said in a communique.

"These great superstars of urban music will offer their experience and talent to the contestants," said the document.

The Puerto Rican duo will occupy one of slots on the judging panel - to be held by two people for the first time - in the contest, and they will have to select a team of singers and then train them to find the country's best singing voice.

With 14 years of experience as a duo, Televisa said, Wisin and Yandel have set a record for the largest number of singles - 11 - to have made it to No. 1 on the Billboard list.

They have also won a Grammy and two Latin Grammys.

"La Voz" is the Mexican adaptation of the Dutch show "The Voice", which has been expanded into several other countries, including the US.

In prior seasons, artists such as Alejandro Sanz, Paulina Rubio, Miguel Bose and Aleks Syntek have worked to discover Mexico's best singers.
