Javier Colon beat out three other contestants and won the first season of “The Voice”. The Adam Levigne protege gets a recording contract with Universal Republic, a $100,000 cash prize and a featured role on “The Voice” summer tour, which kicks off in July. However, it was far from a landslide vote. Runner-up, Dia Frampton, came in behind Colon by a 2-percent margin. Pretty close!!
According to EW.com, Colon told reporters after the show, “It was over.” The singer wasn’t planning on auditioning for “The Voice” until a family member changed his mind. “I thought, I can’t just keep living on a dream and expecting that things are going to work out because it’s not just my wife and I anymore.”
