The Voice 2011 Winner: Javier Colon

Filed under : Celebrity News

Javier Colon was the first season winner of The Voice on NBC last night. His prize is $100,000 and a recording contract.

“Thank you,” Colon said after his win. “The three women behind me are absolutely awesome, and it was a pleasure to be here with them.”

Colon tweeted late last evening, “What do U say as your first tweet after winning The Voice? U say Thank U! To my fans who voted their asses off 4 me. YOU made the difference.”

The exciting new show’s innovative premise made it an instant hit, even when compared to American Idol standards. In each show, teams of hopefuls were grouped with four celebrity coaches: pop star diva Christina Aguilera, “Forget You” singer Cee-Lo Green, country singer Blake Shelton and Maroon 5’s Adam Levine. They sang-off each week in duet duals, for elimination of the judges’ choice.

Javier Colon was part of Adam Levine’s team. He beat Dia Frampton (from team Blake) by just 2 percent, according to the show’s host Carson Daly. Vicci Martinez (from team Cee-Lo) and Beverly McClellan (from Team Christina) completed the final round-up.

All four of the finalists will set out on a 6-city tour next month, so they are assured of good publicity off the back of the show. Expect to see the show tour spawn more than one promising pop career.

The Voice cleaned up in the TV ratings in its debut season – NBC is already casting the show’s second season.

So what do you think? Is Javier Colon a worthy winner of “The Voice”? Are you already looking forward to season two?
