This month American Idol will converge with The Voice as a past star from each show will be performing at the same concert. 96.5 TIC has announced that Javier Colon will open for Adam Lambert at their All-Star Spring Fling on May 26th at Six Flags New England. 96.5 tweeted the news today: "We are THRILLED to announce Javier Colon (@Javstwtr) will be opening for @AdamLambert @SixFlags http://ow.ly/aKxxC."
It's not often that you see finalists of reality show talent competitions from different networks come together for an event. The show will be headlined by American Idol season 8 runner-up Adam Lambert, where he will perform music from his new CD, Trespassing, which drops the prior week. Javier Colon, the winner of season 1 of NBC's The Voice, will open for him. Both Adam and Javier have had complimentary things to say about each other in the past. Adam tweeted about Javier last year during Season 1 of The Voice, saying, "Javier!!! Gave me the chills!" Apparently he is a long-time fan, because he followed with, "Javier is one of the contestants on #thevoice! I actually have an EP of his from a few yrs back. Loved him then and now!!!" The feeling is clearly mutual, because after winning the competition, Javier commented in an interview: "Adam Lambert was one of the first to send a nice tweet. He's very talented so I felt really happy to get that."
