This bit of gossip comes from RadarOnline, so who knows if it’s true– grain of salt and all that. Reportedly, The Voice Season 1 winner, Javier Colon, approached his mentor, Adam Levine, to perform his single “A Drop In The Ocean” with him when he hit the stage for a live performance this week, but Adam would only agree to participate if Javier would sing a cover tune.
“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.”
Hm. Only Cee Lo Green is duetting with his team member, Vicci Martinez. The rest are hooked up with music stars–Team Blake Shelton’s Dia Frampton will sing with Kid Cudi, Team Christina Aguilera’s Beverly McClellan will sing with Cyndi Lauper.
