Javier Colon Willing to Participate In Simon Cowell’s “Super Final”

It’s so sad. For some reason I was not even following last year’s voice winner, Javier Colon! Or I would have picked up on his tweet accepting Simon’s offer to compete in a “Super Final” between winners of the Voice, X Factor and American Idol.

So @simoncowell recently proposed a face off btw Idol/Xfactor/Voice winners I respect the other winners a lot but if U want a battle I’m IN!

I literally feel so much 2nd hand embarrassment reading Javier’s tweet.  Winning The Voice was supposed to jump start his failed career  (after releasing major label albums in 2003 and 2006, Capitol dropped him).

But Javier’s post-Voice album flopped after little to no support from the show or Sony, which is why Simon’s offer must be so tempting.  However, I can’t see how doing another reality show after winning one will help.  I think it will only reinforce the idea that he’s a reality show loser—a guy who won a contest, but who still failed out in the real world. Again!

Seriously Javier, just gather what’s left of your dignity and walk away!

I can’t imagine Idol winner,  Scotty McCreery would even consider such a thing. You know, because  he’s busy launching a successful music career–which is the point of these singing competitions, no?

So maybe X Factor winner, Melanie Amaro and Javier can face off in a showdown.  I really hope Simon was just ass-talking on twitter. The last thing Melanie should be doing right now is competing on YET ANOTHER REALITY SHOW. Melanie needs to concentrate on making an album. Entertainers who show up on multiple reality shows might as well have a big giant L affixed to their foreheads.

One of the mistakes 19 made early on with Idol Season 1 winner,  Kelly Clarkson, was to have her compete on World Idol in 2003.  She lost to Kurt Nilsen of Norway. That had to be embarrassing.  There were no more World Idols after that, thank Jeebus.   A few years ago, TPBT toyed with the idea of bringing back Idols to compete against each other again, but the really successful alums had no interest. OF COURSE.

So, at this point, I think Nigel Lythgoe really means it when he tweeted Simon in response to his suggestion, “@simoncowell suggests the IDOL winner should take on The Voice and X-Factor winners. The problem is the Idol winner will be a star by then.”  Maybe or maybe not–but it can’t help to keep going back to the reality show well. Once is enough.
