JAVIER COLON, the American singer-songwriter and former member of the band EMCQ, was crowned 'The Voice' champion during Wednesday's grand finale, reports OK Magazine. Colon, who was previously signed to Capitol Records, stormed to victory on the show beating rivals Vicci Martinez, Beverly MCLellan and Dia Frampton.

Although he was considered the big favourite to win the show, the singer may have benefitted from his celebrity supporters - most notably Justin Bieber. The 17-year-old Canadian pop star is good friends with Colon's mentor Adam Levine, and has made no secret of his allegiances to the Connecticut soul singer. Before last night's final, Bieber tweeted, "good luck 2nite to @Javstwtr and my basketball rival @AdamLevine on The Voice. everybody support. thanks. @Javstwtr can sing!" After being crowned the first-ever winner of 'The Voice', Colon acknowledged the possible boost he got from Bieber's tweeting, saying, "He sent out a tweet to all of his people, and we won by two percent. I don't know how many of them voted or how many of them just maybe followed me on Twitter. But I'm thankful to everyone who lent their support, who told their folks to give me a chance".

For winning 'The Voice', Javier Colon will receive a $100,000 prize and a recording contract.
