Lola's Playlist is a singing competition for children who are twelve years old and under. Child contestants sing hit songs from the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s

There have been two editions.

The original edition was a subsegment of Kalyeserye conceived during the tenth monthsary of AlDub. Lola's Playlist was integrated into the storyline of Kalyeserye as a contest to entertain the sad Lola Nidora who was missing Alden and Maine while they were shooting for their film Imagine You and Me in Como, Italy. The singing competition lasted for three months, declaring ten-year-old Francis Aglabtin as the ultimate champion.

After the competition, four of the five championship finalists of the original edition appeared regularly on the noontime show as in-house singers. As their popularity further rose, the four championship finalists became known as the Broadway Boys. Soon, they were given an opportunity to sing with various respected Filipino singers in a weekly mini-concert segment title Broadway Boys in Concert.

Lola's Playlist: Beat the Champion is the second edition of the segment that premiered less than a month after the grand finals of the original edition. It is no longer part of the defunct Kalyeserye, but it remained as a subsegment of Juan for All, All for Juan: Bayanihan of d' Pipol. Unlike the original edition where there is only one champion, Lola's Playlist: Beat the Champion declares a champion at the end of each week. Daily winners will compete against each other in the weekly finals where only two competitors will advance to challenge the current champion in the weekly championship round.

Lola's Playlist

Lola's Playlist is a subsegment of Kalyeserye. Aspiring child singers who are twelve years old or under must sing old jukebox hits in this retro-themed competition.

The contestants who won in the daily rounds then underwent a series of elimination rounds until only five grand finalists are left in the competition. The five competitors are known as the "Elite Circle of Five". They are Joshua Lumbao, Joshua Torino, Benidict Aboyme, Francis Aglabtin, and Narcylyn Esguerra.

The five finalists must then compete against one another in the week-long daily championship rounds by earning the most number of stars for their performances. The three grand finalists with the most number of stars will advance to the grand finals titled "Ultimate Battle of the Champions" to decide the ultimate winner of the competition. The three grand finalists who competed in the ultimate grand finals are Francis Aglabtin, Benidict Aboyme, and Joshua Torino.

The "Ultimate Battle of the Champions" is divided into two rounds. In the first round, each of the three grand finalists must perform a song of their choice. At the end of the round, one of the grand finalists will be eliminated by the judges, and only two contestants will move on to the second round. The two finalists who competed in the next round are Francis Aglabtin and Benidict Aboyme.

In the second round, the two grand finalists must perform the same song by providing their own rendition of the musical piece. The song choice is the 1955 hit song "Unchained Melody" by American singer Todd Duncan. The contestants are judged by their voice quality, vocal projection and interpretation, stage presence, and audience impact.

Ten-year-old Francis Aglabtin of San Jose del Monte, Bulacan was named as the ultimate Lola's Playlist grand champion in the grand finals of the competition, receiving a trophy and ₱300,000 in cash prize.

After the competition, four of the five competitors from the "Elite Circle of Five" appeared regularly on the noontime show as in-house singers. Francis Aglabtin, Benidict Aboyme, Joshua Torino, and Joshua Lumbao became a quartet known as the Broadway Boys.

Lola's Playlist: Beat the Champion

Lola's Playlist: Beat the Champion is the second season of the segment. It is no longer part of the defunct segment Kalyeserye, but it remained as a subsegment of Juan for All, All for Juan: Bayanihan of d' Pipol. Like the original season, child contestants must still sing hit songs from the 1950s, 1960s, or 1970s for the competition.

A major revision of the competition's rules concerns the championship round. Instead of having one champion for the competition, Lola's Playlist: Beat the Champion declares a champion at the end of each week.

Daily winners must face each other in the weekly finals where only two competitors will be declared winners. The two winners will then advance to the weekly championship round to face against the competition's current champion.

If one of the challengers successfully beats the defending champion, then the winning contestant will be declared the new champion. If the week's contestants fail to beat the champion, the defending champion will retain his or her title until the next championship. The current champion will then face against the next championship's challengers until someone else successfully beats him or her in the upcoming weeks.

The champion is also eligible to be inducted into the Lola's Playlist: Beat the Champion Hall of Fame. Originally, the defending champion must win a total of ten times in order to be placed in the Hall of Fame. Overtime, the requirement for the number of wins has been lowered down to four. If the defending champion wins four championship rounds in a row, then he or she will be inducted into the Hall of Fame. The defending champion will no longer be eligible to compete any further, and the search for a new champion will commence.

Francis Aglabtin, the ultimate champion of the first season of Lola's Playlist, automatically became the very first champion of the second season. He is also the first champion to be placed in the Hall of Fame of Lola's Playlist: Beat the Champion after winning ten times. His seven wins in the elimination rounds and the grand finals of the original Lola's Playlist have been counted to his number of wins for the Hall of Fame. His three straight championship wins in Lola's Playlist: Beat the Champion completed the requirement for his induction to the Hall of Fame.

Other Hall of Famers include Heart Aguirre and Niel Loma. Each of them won four championships.
