Since the singing competition The Voice wrapped up last month, we’ve been in a total state of withdrawal.

Seriously, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Javier Colon[/lastfm] could sing the phone book and we’d still swoon!

So naturally, fellow phone op Christen and I were stoked when Carson sent us out to the kick off of The Voice Live tour at Gibson Amphitheatre.

The crew performed some of our favorites from season 1 and even had a surprise guest stop by!

Christen and I gave Carson a full breakdown of the concert during today’s AMP Radio morning show:

The top 8 contestants from Teams [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Adam Levine[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Christina Aguilera[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Cee Lo Green[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Blake Shelton[/lastfm] started things off with a group performance of “Freedom.”

The energy was electric and the beat got the whole crowd dancing in their seats!

It was nice to see the contestants relaxed and refreshed on the first of their 6-date mini-tour.

If you’re looking for fun and high-energy, then [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beverly McClellan[/lastfm] won’t let you down!

Even during her performance of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Christina Aguilera[/lastfm]’s “Beautiful,” she got the entire audience on their feet and swaying to the rhythm.

We loved that [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nakia[/lastfm] stepped in to help Beverly with her duet!

Teamwork was a theme that continued all night long. Javier played guitar on that same song and even [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Vicci Martinez[/lastfm] and Beverly helped out with percussion for [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Casey Weston[/lastfm]!

Clearly, Javier was a standout of the evening.

Overwhelmed by his sudden rise to fame, he thanked the audience for all their support and sang the song that first got him noticed during the blind auditions.

The biggest surprise of the evening happened when coach [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Blake Shelton[/lastfm] showed up on stage!

The proud “poppa” performed the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Tom Petty[/lastfm] hit song, “I Won’t Back Down,” with his finalist [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Dia Frampton[/lastfm].

Before we knew it, Javier was singing his final encore! Luckily, they wrapped up the show with another awesome group number.

The top 8 contestants will be stopping next in Las Vegas on Saturday. You can check out all the concert dates here.
