'The Voice' Execs 'Disappointed' That Jermaine Paul Won

When Jermaine was announced the winner on May 8 the executives were doing their best to hide the fact that they were totally upset that he came out as the winner — read on to find out why!

Jermaine Paul might want to stop reading right now! The season two finale of The Voice was reportedly a big let down for executives of the show because they wanted Tony Lucca or Juliet Simms to win instead.

“Jermaine is a lot like last year’s winner Javier Colon,” a source says. “They have a lot in common.”

This is what’s making people over at The Voice so worried!

“Javier didn’t wow anyone with his post-Voice success,” the source adds. “Dia Frampton did better than him and sold more records, it was disappointing for Javier. And people want a success story for the Voice winner. The execs will support him publicly,” the source says. But behind the scenes they’re nervous.”

mistake.. HELL NO !! Not only does Jermaine have THE BEST VOICE he’s very sincere and very charismatic. I loved him from the start of the show and would have been disapponited if he didn’t win. He was the RIGHT choice and with the Right COACH. Congrats to Both Jermaine and Blake!!!!

I can’t believe these executives or whoever they are. Jermaine is way way more better than Javier Colon. Both got ‘the voice’ but Jermaine is a total package, and his voice has so much power and i consider him versatile.

Juliet Simms got ‘the voice’ too and i’m a fan of her as well, her voice and style is more inclined on rock music based on all of her performances on the show, but other than that, what else? it’s the same husky voice that i’m hearing. And honestly, i prefer Jamar over her because of his voice style that he can own a song and that he can put a variety on it. Few people can do that.

Tony has improved a lot from the start but the power is lesser than the above.

It’s not right to say such things behind Jermaine. You were telling us that people want a success story? Well is Jermaine’s not considered a success story at all when he started as a background singer? All of them actually can have their own success stories.

Jermaine, despite what Executives think – I think you have a wonderful career ahead of you and you need to do something big with it. Quite honestly I did not think that either Javier or Dia were great. I actually liked Beverley and Vicky they have strong voices and great stage personality….but you are a complete different person – you have the looks, the strong personality, the character and the great voice…you are NO comparison to Javier.

Executives at THE VOICE – this is like comparing apple and oranges….they are NOT similar.

Jermaine, you GO OUT THERE and show them what you are made off. Get together with guys like Lionel Richie- do a mix of songs…widen your range but also do what makes you happy…Remember American obviously loved what you did despite what Executives think, it is ultimately American who is going to support you and the rest of the World. From what I read on Face book and other sites – you have a lot of support worldwide….

As an artist you travel so your audience is not limited to the US….Some artists actually do better out of their home Country.

You to me are a Luther Vandross and gosh does the World miss him.
