He talked about his victory in a recent conference call with reporters.

"In that moment," Javier explained, "I was expecting Carson [Daly] to say 'And the winner of The Voice is Dia Frampton.' That's what I was preparing myself for. I just didn't think I was going to win."

"I've been through so much in the business," he continued, referring to his previous record deals. "And when he said my name I just honestly was in shock. I just couldn't believe that I had come so far and I actually won."

Contamination the Sequel Review

By Kati Krieger

ContaminationIt was a bright and sunny weekend in late June when the horror started. The quiet Lakeside Chalet sat pristinely against a bright blue, cloud streaked sky, quiet and still. Little did anyone know that in the bowels of that building an abnormal world was churning.

Once inside the chalet a quick stop at the hotel desk led me down a long white hallway that ended at a cross hall. This little area, taken over by the registration table and small souvenir stand didn't seem like much. There were a few volunteers checking people in, giving them their wristbands that allowed admittance to the convention. It wasn't until I saw a zombie walk past me and post a sign on one of the closed doors proclaiming a zombie hunt would take place inside that I started to feel like there was something more going on.

Exclusive - Cody Deal: A Success Story of His Own Making

Cody DealRising star Cody Deal, who starred in Syfy's Almighty Thor earlier in the year, is still working hard to make it in Hollwood (and blogging about it). We at SciFi Vision talked to Deal before the release of the Asylum film on Syfy. Since then, Deal is still working on his career, his goals, and following his heart.

During the beginning of his career, Deal hired a publicist, like most actors do, which is how he first became involved in Contamination, a horror, sci-fi, and popculture convention that starts today in St. Louis that he will be attending. However, he since he has learned he can promote himself well on his own. "Originally when I did Almighty Thor, I was like "I need to hire a publicist, I've got a movie out there."

"...So I hocked my iPad and got a publicist for $500 that month. He said I was getting his full services, but that didn't happen. But I learned about how to do it from him. I was like, "I can do this."

"...And then I put that grass roots effort into getting onto all the major networks and different stuff. But he is the one who got the event booker in contact with me, it was that publicist that actually got that set that up."

Contamination is Deal's first convention - as a guest or attending, so he doesn't know what to expect. Deal, however, who is always very personable, is looking forward to meeting people at the convention. "I hope there are a lot of people who show up who know who I am, that's what I hope. I feel like the majority of people are going to show up and not have any clue of who I am. "Oh, you were in [Almighty] Thor, that's cool!" I want people to have excitement on their faces and go, "I loved your movie!" Or, "Your movie sucked! But you're a cool dude." That's what I'm looking forward to the most.

"...I'm a pretty approachable guy, and I'm going to bring cards that have my Facebook and twitter on there...I'm such a small town guy, that I say hi to everybody."

The Voice: Online Presence is “Incredibly Crucial” According to Alison Haislip

By Karen Moul

Alison HaislipBlind auditions and exceptionally talented contestants are not the only things that sets The Voice apart from other singing competitions. The show has aggressively embraced online media and even has its own "V Correspondent," Alison Haislip, who blogs, tweets, and posts to Facebook during the episodes.

She encourages the performers to do the same, saying it is "incredibly crucial" to interact with fans if they hope to advance in the competition.

"People can vote not just by telephone," Haislip explains, "but online at nbc.com and using the NBC Live app. [So] the more you can get yourself out there online the better chances you're going to have."

But Haislip also believes online interaction has benefits beyond The Voice.

"Something this show has become known for," she says, "is giving artists a second chance.

"And some of those artists...have said that the reason they didn't have their first chance is because labels or managers or whoever said that they just did not have a strong enough online presence, they did not have a big enough fan base online to get their news out there."

The Voice: Final Battle Round is Full of Surprises

By Karen Moul

The VoiceThe Voice's final battle round made headlines for The Kiss. Emily Valentine stunned the judges and the audience by sharing a romantic smooch with competitor Curtis Grimes.

"Neither of us have ever sung a duet before," says Valentine. "And by 'singing a duet' I also mean 'kiss on stage.' "

She says the feelings between her and Grimes are real, but the kiss was part of the performance. "We kind of thought about well, how can we utilize the best of this opportunity?" she explains.

"Curtis and I are very like-minded in the business sense of our careers and recognized that it was such a unique experience," battling each other after growing so close. "And at the ninth hour," continues Valentine, "Curtis was like 'Let's just do it. Let's do a kiss at the end of our song.' And I was like 'Oh my God, I can't believe this is going to happen!' "

Cherie Oakley got a surprise of her own when coach Blake Shelton introduced her to Reba McIntyre.

"I wrote this song [called] 'Turn on the Radio' shortly after the flood happened in Nashville," Cherie tells Scifi Vision. "And everything with my record deal started to crumble at the same that Reba heard the song and wanted to sing it.

"And so obviously I gave her the song," Oakley adds, "and the song climbed the charts...We tried many times to meet and it just never happened."

And then fate and NBC intervened to put Oakley and McIntyre on The Voice.

"I got to meet her and share one of the coolest experiences of my life with the entire world, Oakley concludes. "It was so surreal. It was crazy."

An Old Friend: A Year Since "LOST"

By AJ Grillo

May 23, 2011

It is time to revisit an old friend, not that this friend has ever been far from my thoughts. I am speaking of Lost. We are one year removed from the series finale, and websites and chat rooms all over the world are doing a re-watch of the finale. Lost was an amazing roller coaster ride of mystery and intrigue. It made us think; we could play along with the cast of characters in trying to figure out what was going on. A few times from season four on I was afraid that the journey was going to be better than the destination. Was I right? Possibly. Then again, why did it matter?

Lost kept us riveted for six years. I myself had the honor of being there for the beginning of the "web mazes." Lost related fan sites popped up everywhere, not to mention all the official online content. This was the first time that a show had bridged the gap of television and internet so flawlessly. Even when Lost was on hiatus we still had plenty of online content to mess with to keep us occupied.

However, after awhile it seemed Lost had presented too many questions for them to all be answered: what's the smoke monster, what are the whispers, who are The Others, and hundreds more. But none so prolific as the line that became the benchmark of the show uttered by Charlie in season one, "Guys, where are we?" Did Lost answer the many, many questions presented? Some yes. Were we happy with some of those answers, mostly not.

In the end, it didn't matter. Lost was not about the island per se. Yes, the island itself was a character, but the show was a character driven show about survivors of a plane crash who happened to be on a mystical island with unusual abilities. The characters themselves were "lost" in life, not just on the island. It was about redemption and finding themselves.

"The Voice:" Artists Content with Format & Results

By Karen Moul

The VoiceThe Voice Battle Rounds continue, with celebrity coaches sending four more performers home each week. America won't get to vote until the field has been reduced by at least half. But despite being eliminated early, recent performers say they wouldn't change the show's format.

Pop singer Kelsey Rey feels "the coaches did a great job working with us, regardless of the outcome. I think that the whole show was such a great experience, and what we learned from it was amazing."

Adds Rey, "I don't think there should be anything changed about the show, because everything does happen for a reason. And all [of us]...have great things coming for us. That's all thanks to the show. I don't think that anything should have changed."

Rebecca Loebe agrees. "The format of the show," says the folksinger, "with the blind auditions is incredibly intriguing, and has caught a lot of people's attention, for sure.

"And something that I appreciated," she continues, "is that they really had a lot of respect for a diversity of creative expression. They didn't try to change what anyone did, you know?"
