Got Something to Add?
Steve, you are 100% correct. I have been around sooo many talented musicians that never made the big time and then I see the crap that passes for talent today and I have to cringe (and these yahoos make millions). So sad.
This guy (Javier) is a major, MAJOR talent. Just because he recorded before has nothing to do with this competition. It's called THE VOICE, not The Voice That No One Has Heard Of.
This is what all artists pray for, a break. I wish you great success ,Javier. You deserve it.
Bloody awesome this guy! And here another great story about him... http://nbcthevoicefan.com/2011/05/08/the-usa-has-its-ben-saunders-and-his-name-is-javier-colon/
It was not perfect. He didn't keep to the melody because he couldn't. See Robbie Rosen on Idol; running all around the melody.
Thanks for posting these videos Rickey. I loved it and Idol really needs to take a note from this, he is way more talented than any of the ppl on Idol this year.
Major melisma!(not a compliment) I think he had some great moments and others that were questionable... I HATED the way he phrased "time after time".
He's always been one of the more underrated singers/artists in the business. I'm surprised Cee Lo knew who Frenchie was but didn't know Javier, considering they both sang a song called "Crazy" lol. Javier has the skills though, check his Youtube stuff with Joss Stone and Darius Rucker (Hootie and the Blowfish)
Yeah, he had a reasonably well known R&B song called "Crazy" a few year back. He was known as Javier back then. Phenomenal performance tonight. I hope he gets a lot more recognition now.
This guy has recorded before! He has a duet with Vanessa Williams on her last CD called October Sky, which if I remember correctly he recorded on his own debut album several years earlier.
Ricky, could you tell me the song that was playing in the background when Javier Colon picked Adam as his coach? While they were shaking hands? thanks a bunch....I love this song and can't for the life of me think of the name!
This show has so much more talent than idol. Love the premise as well, no choosing purely on being a tween hero.
Thanks so much for posting these Voice videos up Rickey. I'm also really glad you included the judges' comments! This guy's voice had me dying within the first line. Incredible tone. This is the type of quality stuff Idol should be scrambling to get!
Rejects? Since when does commercial success determine actual musical talent? Not any time recently. That mentality completely ignores a ton of the factors (many of which the artist has no control over) that ultimately contribute to an artist's success or failure, regardless of talent.
Yep this guys has been around the block. The Voice is just showcasing rejects that are coming back for a second chance. I still like the show and will watch it. lol
Yes! What is that song? It's driving me nuts. I'm trying to pick out lyrics but they're tough to understand. Any help here would be appreciated! Tammy, do you know any of the lyrics? That might help narrow it down.
Yes. So swamped right now. I think I've been running of MAX for 3 hours it's taking it's toll on my body.
