More sad news from The Voice front: Season One winner Javier Colon has parted ways with his label Universal Republic Records, BuddyTV reports.
The haters will call him a “failed artist” again which is unfortunate. Javier did good — he’s always been a musician and The Voice helped him get a bigger audience. He has more fans now than when he started and I am confident he will continue to make music and perform.
Read Javier’s statement:
American Idol and The Voice are about to cross paths! Adam Lambert, Javier Colon and Jermaine Paul are set to perform at this year’s 965 TIC All-Star Spring Fling — as presented by Coca Cola.
The event kicks off at Six Flags New England on May 26, and Lambert is set as the headliner.
From 96.5 TIC FM:
Nigel Lythgoe, the producer of Idol, quickly shot the idea down because his show produces “stars” (as if a competition like that would be beneath the franchise).
Well, sorry Nigel, nothing is going to stop us from doing it anyway. As a warm-up for this season, let’s use the winners of last year’s competitions for the first ever Voice-Idol-Factor-Sing-Off! Melanie Amaro vs. Javier Colon vs. Scotty McCreery? Who is your champion?
Here are videos of their “signature songs” on their respective shows plus a poll in the end. Later, I’m going to expand this to include the finalist from each program (maybe Top 4) so we can have an ultimate-ultimate winner (I think Haley Reinhart is going to win that one knowing you guys). But for now, just the winners – take the poll!
Javier Colon sang ‘It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year’ at Christmas in Rockefeller Center. Nice! No wonder he won The Voice.
Javier just released his debut album ‘Come Through For You‘

Here are some album releases for the week. I hope that Daughtry’s numbers don’t disappoint. I’m not that optimistic about Javier Colon’s numbers, but hopefully his fans give him a lot of support this week. Also, check out Big Time Rush — ‘Superstar’ which appears on their latest album is written by Jay Sean and Jared Cotter.
Rihanna – Talk That Talk
Daughtry – Break The Spell
Big Time Rush – Elevate
Javier Colon – Come Through For Me
The Voice winner Javier Colon and Natasha Bedingfield team up with ‘As Long As We Got Love’. Javier’s album ‘Come Through For You‘ comes out on November 21! How exciting.
This track sounds a bit too teeny-bopperish for Javier and Natasha. It could be a great soundtrack song for a TV movie on Disney though. Listen:
The Voice winner Javier Colon is getting another boost from NBC. He is going to appear on the new show ‘The Playboy Club’ as Ray Charles. Omigosh, can Javier act? NBC also revealed that they are positioning the show as a 1960′s ‘Glee’ where they will sell songs on iTunes and a soundtrack album. Here are other singers scheduled to appear on the show:
