Javier Colon Says He Had No Confidence He Would Win 'The Voice' (VIDEO)

Javier Colon, winner of 'The Voice,' on 'Today'Wednesday night, Javier Colon beat out favorite Dia Frampton to win the first season of 'The Voice.' Friday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), Colon said he never thought it would happen. His doubts were understandable: the show had chronicled Colon's many missed chances in the music industry, and he talked with Matt Lauer about almost giving up music.

"It was getting to the point where I wasn't able to make a living, enough to raise my two beautiful girls and to support my wife," he said. "And I wasn't going to let that happen. So If I had to do something else, I was going to do something else."

Colon said he was convinced he would fall short yet again Wednesday night. "There was never any confidence," he said. "I was fully prepared for Carson to say, 'And the winner of 'The Voice' is Dia Frampton.'" Instead, he won, and says there are plans in place for him to work with his 'Voice' coach Adam Levine, and also Cee Lo Green, in the studio. "We're going to do some fun things," he said. That's an understatement -- he now has $100,000 and a major label record deal. We predict many fun things coming his way in the future.
