"The Voice" has crowned Javier Colon as the first winner. The soulful crooner, who was mentored by Adam Levine during the competition, receives a $100,000 prize and a recording contract after beating out three other finalists; Dia Frampton, Vicci Martinez and Beverly McClellan.

It turns out Javier's biggest competitor on the final result show was Dia. The Blake Shelton protege came in second place with only a slim, 2 percent margin between her and the ultimate champion. Still, Shelton gave his applause after the voting result was announced. Meanwhile, Adam rushed to the stage to hug Javier.

"Wow. Thank you. I don't even know where to begin other than to say that the three women behind here are absolutely awesome," Javier said humbly as confetti rained down on him. "I want to thank everybody at home who believed in me and voted for me and [I want to thank] my family."

Adam had been pretty confident that his protege Javier would win after watching his duet of "Landslide" with Stevie Nicks on the June 29 show. "I'm pretty speechless ... that was one of the most beautiful duets I've ever heard in my life," the Maroon 5 frontman said of the performance. "You're one of my heroes. Good luck ... you deserve to win this competition."

The other top 4 contestants also had a duet with famous singers during the result show. Dia performed with Shelton's wife Miranda Lambert, Vicci had a collaboration with Pat Monahan of Train, and Beverly took the stage with OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder.

There's no need for sour grapes. Javier won fair and square and it doesn't matter anymore whether Dia is #1 on Itune or not. Your statement is equally unfair since it's based on assumption. The small gap only proves that they're both popular and young voters like the contemporary sound of Dia. I'm middle aged and I voted for Javier. Who knows he got the backing from oldies like me too last night. The voice can't strip Javier his title just because Justin Bieber tweeted his fans, so why bother expressing your sour grape. Yes, you love Dia because of her unique voice, but that's just your perspective. Mine is different, and I love Javier's voice because I prefer singers that can hit high notes effortlessly.

If it weren’t for Bieber tweeting his 10 million fans to vote for Javier, then Dia would have definitely have won. This kid sold a lock of his hair for over 40 grand - his fans are obsessed. Less than 2 percent was his fans that made up the difference, not Javiers. It’s a little unfair for a well known and successful artist to ask his fans to vote. I just want everyone to know the truth. I like Javier and respect him as an artist, but Dia deserved to win – her voice is unique and beautiful. She’s number 1 on Itunes for a reason :)
