Javier Colon is the winner of the 1st season of NBC's The Voice!
Colon, the father of two, was an early favorite of mentor Adam Levine. 10 weeks of competition later, the Connecticut resident beat out second-place contestant Dia Frampton.
After being announced the winner, Colon told the audience:
- "Wow. Thank you. I don't even know where to begin other than to say that the three women behind here are absolutely awesome. I want to thank everybody at home who believed in me and voted for me and [I want to thank] my family."
Find out how much money Colon took home ... after the jump.
Colon took home a $100,000 recording contract! Congrats.
