Carson Daly: And The Winner Of NBC’s “The Voice” Is…

[photogallerylink id=107400]

It’s clear that The Voice is the breakout hit of the summer.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve gotten to know and love the four finalists: [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Vicci Martinez[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Javier Colon[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Dia Frampton[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beverly McClellan[/lastfm].

First, we met them in the blind auditions, where the star-studded coaching panel chose them based on the sound of their voice alone.

Then, they sang for their lives in the battle rounds.

And last night, they premiered original songs in hopes of capturing America’s vote.

Well, things finally came to a close tonight and we now know who is the big winner!

WARNING: MAJOR SPOILER ALERT AHEAD!!!

A bunch of us at AMP Radio sat in the live studio audience to support our morning show guru Carson and we can tell you that the atmosphere was electric.

Based on the iTunes sales, it seemed like it was a dead heat and we were anxiously awaiting Carson’s big reveal of the winning name!

This morning, we had to get a full breakdown from the host himself:

During the hour-long episode, each contestant got to perform a song with a famous musician.

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Vicci Martinez[/lastfm] & [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Patrick Monahan[/lastfm] — “Drops of Jupiter”

Usually Miss Vicki sings intense songs with tons of emotion and it was a refreshing change to see her have a little fun tonight.

She seemed to truly enjoy her final moments on stage and showed no signs of nerves.

Her coach Cee Lo couldn’t help but dance in his chair like a proud poppa!

The [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Train[/lastfm] number showed off her range as an artist and we liked seeing this new side of her.

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Javier Colon[/lastfm] & [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Stevie Nicks[/lastfm] — “Landslide”

Wow. If we had to pick a favorite performance from the evening, this would have to be it.

Sure, it helps that he’s singing one of the world’s most iconic songs with a critically-acclaimed artist, but Javier definitely held his own, just like he always does.

Even coach [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Adam Levine[/lastfm] got emotional, but he promised us he wouldn’t cry on national TV!

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beverly McClellan[/lastfm] & [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Ryan Tedder[/lastfm] — “Good Life”

Our beloved Beverly is such a rockstar, but she surprised us with how comfortable she was with this pop song.

It was endearing to see her bop about the stage with the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]One Republic[/lastfm] lead singer, but honestly we were surprised that [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Christina Aguilera[/lastfm] kept her cool throughout this performance.

The “Bionic” songstress took time to thank all the coaches on the panel, saying they were “like the brothers” she never had. Adorbz!

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Dia Frampton[/lastfm] & [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Miranda Lambert[/lastfm] — “The House That Built Me”

Over the past few weeks, Dia has become an internet favorite.

Her original song, “Inventing Shadows,” snagged the #1 spot on iTunes today and it seemed like her momentum would be unstoppable.

Coach [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Blake Shelton[/lastfm] told Dia tonight that she was “family” to him, so who better to duet with her than his new wife, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Miranda Lambert[/lastfm]?

The two harmonized beautifully in a stunning rendition of Lambert’s country ballad.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

So after watching all the performances, we had NO CLUE who would come out on top.

But since the show was live on the East Coast, we already know who won!

Congratulations to The Voice winner, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Javier Colon[/lastfm]!!!

He captivated America from the moment he first stepped on stage back in April and all the hard work has finally paid off!

When Carson asked him how this incredible moment felt, the father of two thanked everyone who voted for him and “wonderful women” who competed alongside of him all season long.
