Adam Lavine rejects the original voice winner, Javier Colon
The point behind “The Voice” is for each coach to build up their team of contestants in hopes that one of their own talented artist will come out victorious. As a fan of the show, the relationships between the contestant and their coach/mentor is what makes the program so good. They strive for the best and want to make their coach proud.
Last year’s winner Javier Colon (Team Adam) and all the finalists will return to perform on Tuesday’s elimination show… but Adam Lavine won’t be apart of it.
“Everyone is so excited,” a source tells RadarOnline.com, explaining that Team Blake Shelton’s Dia Frampton will sing with Kid Cudi, Team Christina Aguilera’s Beverly McClellan will sing with Cyndi Lauper, Team CeeLo Green‘s Vicci Martinez will sing with her former coach, and Javier will be singing alone.
“The show wants to make it seem like since Javier is the winner he can carry his own performance without a celebrity by his side,” a source says. “But that’s not really the case.”
According to the source, Javier approached his old coach Adam about singing backup vocals or playing the drums during his performance, but Adam rejected the idea.
“Adam said he would only consider collaborating with Javier for the performance if it was a cover. Not his original song,” the source explained. “Javier wouldn’t budge and neither would Adam.”
The Maroon 5 frontman’s lack of support for his winner, stems from Javier’s post-Voice success – or lack of.
“Javier has been a disappointment,” the source explains. “He wouldn’t take any direction with his album, so it flopped. He has such an amazing voice but his attitude is holding him back.”
