The Voice crowned its first season winner on Wednesday (29th June 2011), with the American singer-songwriter Javier Colon storming to victory with a series of flawless final performances. Colon, a former member of EMCQ, has been heavily fancied to become 'The Voice' champion since his opening audition, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Born in Bridgeport, Connecticut with Dominican and Puerto Rican origins, Colon was once signed to Capitol Records but later became an independent artist. The 34-year-old was complimentary of his fellow finalists after being named the winner, saying, "Thank you. I don't even know where to begin, other than to say that the three women behind me are absolutely awesome". Colon, who pipped Vicci Martinez, Beverly MCLellan and Dia Frampton to the prize, added, "I want to thank everyone at home who believed in me and voted for me. Whoo!" The Voice host Carson Daly described the first ever final as containing, "some of the most incredible performances ever seen on television". Javier was lauded for his duet with STEVE NICKS, singing the Fleetwood Mac ballad 'Landslide'. Judge Adam Levine remarked, "That's one of the most beautiful duets I've ever heard in my life".

Placing emphasis on vocal talent over looks and personality, The Voice immediately proved to be a hit for Nbc after debuting in May 2011. The show's 'blind auditions' were considered a contrast to other reality singing contests such as AMERICAN IDOL.
