What Do You Mean 'The Voice' Is Over Already!?...

"Live from Los Angeles: It was The Voice finals!'

Prior to the final round of The Voice, the remaining contestants had never actually competed against each other. Consider it: any time their coaches or the American audience had to vote, it was always on the sub-groups of the teams, leaving them to feel free to bond as friends. Each one-- Vicci Martinez, Javier Colon, Beverly McClellan, and Dia Frampton-- rose to the top, the cream of their respective crops, and had to face off against each other live on-stage in Los Angeles during the final round...

He commands your attention; he commanded your votes; and now all of that hard work has finally paid off, walking away with the $100,000 and a record deal with Universal Republic win... [MORE]

"Dia Frampton, sitting pretty after coming in runner-up on The Voice"

Okay, we’ll admit it: after Frampton’s original song “Inventing Shadows” shot up to number one on iTunes (with Javier Colon’s “Stitch by Stitch” sneaking up to number two just before the voting closed), we thought The Voice outcome was a lock for her. Many of you probably did, too. But then again, most people who pay to download a song will only do so once, and voting online or via the 855 number could be done up to ten times each. But then again, things are rarely so neatly tied up in life, right? ... [MORE]
