Javier Colon to Represent Team Adam, Casey Weston Eliminated Tonight on ‘The Voice’
Tonight on 'The Voice,' Casey Weston from Adam Levine's team was sadly eliminated. Although the 18-year-old has had solid performances throughout the season, her voice was no match for the silky smooth vocals projected by Javier Colon.
Last night, Javier Colon performed Coldplay's rock anthem 'Fix You,' breezing through the song with poise and precision. Casey Weston performed the Dolly Parton/Whitney Houston classic 'I Will Always Love You,' definitely giving veteran singer Colon a run for his money.
Before the eliminations were announced, Team Adam had a little adventure to the recording studio, where Travie McCoy and his band, Gym Class Heroes, were practicing a brand-new track. The song, entitled 'Stereo Hearts,' also features Adam Levine, and his team had the opportunity of watching them perform the track for one of the first times ever.
When the fateful decision had to be made, host Carson Daly asked for coach Adam Levine's scores from last night to be displayed. Adam awarded Colon 65, while he only gave Weston 35. Although it seemed harsh at first, considering Weston was great last night, Levine took the time to explain his decision, saying that Weston was only 18 and had a bright future ahead of her. "Javier, I had to see you go to the finals and you've had so many chances and I respect that … I have to see you go the end," Levine told Colon.
When the combined scores were announced, Javier Colon blew away Weston in an overwhelming victory. Levine said "You're both amazing, you really are" before rushing onstage to give Weston a hug, saying, "it's not over." Colon was obviously moved -- and a little speechless -- by the decision, saying, "Well, I just feel blessed man, very blessed and very excited."
