After 10 weeks of competition, the winner of NBC's The Voice is…

Javier Colon!

The Stratford, Conn., father of two first won over his Voice mentor, Adam Levine, in the blind audition round in April, and viewers stuck with him through the battle and semi-final rounds to name him The Voice's champ Wednesday night.

"Wow. Thank you. I don't even know where to begin other than to say that the three women behind here are absolutely awesome," an emotional Colon said after being crowned season 1's best performer. "I want to thank everybody at home who believed in me and voted for me and [I want to thank] my family."

Beating out second-place finisher Dia Frampton by a mere two percent of the vote, Colon will earn $100,000 and a recording contract. Earlier in the evening, Colon proved that contract will be put to good use, offering up a cover of "Landslide" with Stevie Nicks that left Levine "speechless." "That was one of the most beautiful duets I've ever heard in my life," the coach gushed.

Frampton and third- and fourth-place finishers Beverly McClellan and Vicci Martinez won't go home empty-handed, however. They'll join Colon and the show's four other finalists on The Voice's six-city concert tour this summer.
