Tony Vincent was one of 48 talented artists chosen to battle it out on US national television for the prize of a recording contract on NBC's hit singing competition "The Voice" (Season 2.)
After a powerful rendition of Queen's "We Are The Champions" (Blind audition), Tony was snatched up by Grammy-winning musician and producer Cee Lo Green (TeamCeeLo) who commented that Freddie Mercury would have been proud of his performance. Tony went on to win a cut-throat "Battle" singing Journey's Faithfully against team mate (and close friend) Justin Hopkins, and he advanced to the "Live" stage of the competition. During Live show (Week 2) Tony performed Tears For Fears "Everybody Wants To Rule The World" which received mixed reviews from the coaches, and prompted Cee Lo to apologise to Tony for giving him a song which restricted his vocal dynamic and range. America voted, and Tony found himself in TeamCeeLo's bottom three during the results show the following evening. For his "Last Chance" performance Tony chose "Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)" by the Eurythmics, --a song which represented him perfectly as an artist. He gave it gusto, playing to the camera with dramatic expression whilst dominating the stage with power, presence and true Tony Vincent style. Cee Lo was torn over the decision of which of his bottom three artists he would save, but after a heart-stopping, nail-biting, stomach-churning moment of deliberation, he finally announced "My head says Tony, but my heart says Cheesa", and to the shock of the studio audience, and his fans around the world, Tony was eliminated from the competition (exiting prematurely at the final 24 stage.)
Public outrage ensued in the days following, with thousands of comments being posted online (mainly Facebook and Twitter) strongly supporting Tony, and condemning Cee Lo's decision to eliminate him.
Cee Lo said that cutting Tony was not easy for him. "To have to let someone as talented as Tony go, it really disappointed me tonight. It hurt me," he said. "It hurt my feelings, and I know I hurt his feelings too. So I apologize to Tony. You know I love you.""I felt connected to him [Tony] like a brother." Plus, they celebrated the birth of his new baby and were "just really good friends." Cee Lo sings the highest of praises for Tony. "I am humbled by his ability. I am humbled by his experience, his wisdom, and his veteran-ism. He has accomplished something in the arts that I have not. He has conquered Broadway and made himself worthy to be here and get to this point. "
Tony, ever gracious in defeat, gave his comments also, saying “If you don’t go with your gut, you’re probably going to make a misstep,” he said. “I do think he [Cee Lo] made a misstep tonight. I think he chose wrong. But if I was in his seat, feeling those things, I can’t say that my decision would be different.” Tony went on to say that his elimination came as a big surprise, but he thinks he knows why America didn’t vote him into the top three: his unique style. “I read a little bit of online stuff last night that it came across as a little bit socialist, militant, a little too Hitler-esque,” he said laughing. “I thought it was incredibly vibey, but America isn’t about that. They’re about Top 40, at least this audience, and that’s ok.” “I’m disappointed, but I left my mark on the show with a great exit.” Tony said.

Created by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan (All the Way, The Kentucky Cycle) and award-winning composer Neil Berg (Grumpy Old Men, Prince and the Pauper), The 12 is a rockin’ and profoundly honest journey of fear, doubt, and ultimately, love.
