OMG, you guys! It was the finale!

The Voice picked who became—well, "the Voice"—winner of $100,000 and a contract with Universal Records.


So who took it all?!

Of course they didn't announce it right off the bat, they had an hour to fill—duh!

So to take up some time, the four finalists Dia Frampton, Javier Colon, Beverly McClellan and Vicci Martinez each sang a duet with one of their favorite artists.


Before hitting the stage with their idol, each contestant had a "look-back" at their journey, which of course got us a little teary (we're not ashamed).

But then it was showtime!

Pat Monahan from Train joined up with Vicci from Cee Lo Green's team and sang "Drops of Jupiter." Cee Lo said it best when he claimed that Vicci reminded him of other artists, but there's no one that reminded him of Vicci because she's so unique.

From Adam Levine's team, Javier joined the stage with the legendary Stevie Nicks and performed "Landslide." Levine tugged at our heart strings when he called Javier his hero.

Beverly from Christina Aguilera's team linked up with One Republic's Ryan Tedder and rocked out to "Good Life." Christina commended Beverly and then surprised the other coaches with a public thank-you for being the big brothers she'd never had. Awww!

Lastly, Dia represented Blake Shelton's team when she sang a duet to "House That Built Me," with her coach's wife, Miranda Lambert.

Of course, Papa Shelton made us get a tad emotional as he struggled to say that seeing Dia on stage with his wife made it clear that the contestant was family to him, and that was why he acted the way he did around her.

Double awww!

But enough heart to heart, who won the friggin' show?! We found out that it was a really close race, with the top two contestants only two percent away from each other in votes.

Who were they? Dia and Javier!

But when it came down to the wire, only one could take the title.

Congratulations to the first winner of The Voice, Javier Colon!

Yes, we cried.

Do you agree with America's choice? Sad that The Voice is over so soon? Sound off in the comments!
