Just in case you haven’t heard Javier Colon has been declared “the Voice”! Colon was awarded the title, a contract with Universal Republic, and $100K in cash at last night’s finale of season 1 of “The Voice.” The Voice is a reality performance show on NBC that is considered a rival of the very popular “American Idol.”
Hand picked by Maroon 5’s Adam Levine, Colon’s talent was apparent from the jump. In last night’s finale Colon took to the stage and performed “Landslide” a duet with Stevie Nicks in addition to an original song entitled “Stitch by Stich.” Judge and mentor, Adam Levine deemed the performance “one of the most beautiful duets I’ve ever heard in my life.”
Host Carson Daly announced that the voting was incredibly close, with less than 2% separating the winner from the runner up. The top two contestants with the most votes were Dia Frampton and Javier Colon. Colon, who’s had his share of ups and down in the music industry, was emotional in his victory. With tears in his eyes, Javier shouted out “the three women behind me” who made it to the finals with him. His coach Adam Levine engulfed him in a big hug. The Maroon 5 frontman was ecstatic over Colon’s win.
