[Audio + Video] Carson Daly: “The Voice” Winner Javier Colon Treats AMP To A Live In-Studio Performance Of “Stitch By Stitch!”
If we had it our way, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Javier Colon[/lastfm] would sing us to sleep every night!
Each week on NBC’s The Voice, he knocked our socks off with his out-of-this-world vocals.
Today, he reunited with Voice and AMP morning show host Carson Daly to explain how his life has changed since the show’s finale and perform his current single live on-air!

Even though The Voice wrapped up about a month ago, life hasn’t slowed down for [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Javier Colon[/lastfm].
But did you know that he almost didn’t even try out for the show?
I had a cold. I woke up a couple days before the New York audition. I wasn’t feeling great. I was like, “You know what. I can’t go.” And I talked to my brother who knew my situation and knew that I only had like 5-6 shows on the books over the course of the next 5 months. I’m married and I have two beautiful baby girls. You know, I needed to figure out a way to bring home some income.
Thankfully for Javier (and all of us), he went through with it and got all four coaches to turn around their chairs during the blind auditions.
He chose to team up with [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Adam Levine[/lastfm] and despite the wide range of talent on the panel, he never regretted his decision:
He [Adam Levine] is just the nicest, most genuine guy. And you can tell by his posture, like before you announced my name, he really, really wanted me to win.
Season 1 of The Voice is over and done with, but the two still keep in touch. In fact, Adam brought him up on stage during [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Maroon 5[/lastfm]‘s concert at the Hollywood Bowl to sing [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Michael Jackson[/lastfm]‘s “Man In the Mirror.”
