Watch 'The Voice' Contestant Dia Frampton's 'Don't Kick the Chair' Feat. Kid Cudi (VIDEO)

She isn't just a pretty 'voice,' but also one talented songwriter! Dia Frampton, who rose to fame as the runner-up on the inaugural season of NBC's 'The Voice,' has a catchy new, Kid Cudi-assisted single out called 'Don't Kick the Chair.' The Utah native puts the tune's poignant lyrics in the spotlight for its brand-new video.

"I wrote this song with Busbee and Julie Frost," Dia, who was on country megastar Blake Shelton's 'Voice' team, told AOL Music. "It started with my lyrical idea, 'Don't Kick the Chair,' since my sisters and I throw that phrase around at home when we're complaining about something when, on the other hand, it's a beautiful day outside. In other words, 'don't kick the chair' is another way of saying, 'don't give up,' because you can't have the highs without the lows, and there's no use in getting down about something for too long. You got to start pushing forward at some point."

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."

Javier Colon & Dia Frampton, 'The Voice''American Idol' revolutionized the singing competition in America ten years ago, and its first winner, Kelly Clarkson, went on to worldwide success and fame.

This summer, 'The Voice' (Wed., 8PM ET on NBC) has arguably reinvented the concept by putting the focus on ... the voice. Will its winner go on to comparable success?

With top caliber coaches in Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Christina Aguilera, the show was more about nurturing tomorrow's superstars than sitting distant and aloof in judgment of them. And after all was said and done it came down to 2 percent.

Vicci Martinez, Javier Colon, and Dia Frampton of 'The Voice' on 'Today'The first season of 'The Voice' comes to an end this week with performances by the finalists Tuesday night and the results show Wednesday. Three out of the four remaining singers appeared Monday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC) to talk about what they've learned from their celebrity coaches and how they feel about their competition.

Dia Frampton said she's learned a lot from watching Blake Shelton perform for an audience. "I think the best time I ever had with him is when he took us to a show in Ohio and I was kind of watching him perform," she said. Vicci Martinez has had a good time just being around Cee Lo Green. "He's a riot," she said. "You never know what you're going to get from him."

Vicci Martinez Brings Down the House on 'The Voice' Semi-Finals (VIDEO)

Vicci Martinez, 'The Voice''The Voice' (Tue., 9PM ET on NBC) continued blazing toward its finale next week at a breakneck pace. This week, we got the final four members of our Elite Eight, and got to hear them sing. Tomorrow, another hatchet job will send four of them home, leaving each Coach with only one contender for the finale.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

Before the Top 8 could sing, though, we needed to know who they were. And that meant getting the results of last week's battle between Teams Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine. As with the prior week, America's vote would save one contestant, while the Coach would save the other.

Dia Frampton Owns Kanye West's 'Heartless' As Piano Ballad on 'The Voice' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 8th 2011 3:41AM
Dia Frampton, 'The Voice'Despite having already released a major label album with her sister as Meg & Dia in 2009, Blake Shelton noticed that Dia Frampton seemed to have a nervous energy about her on 'The Voice' (Tue., 9PM ET on NBC). The band is unsigned now, so perhaps she sees this as a last opportunity to make a career doing what she loves.

In this first week of live competition, it's more important than ever for the contestants to come out strong and give their best performances. Shelton gave Frampton a real chance to shine with an unusual song choice in Kanye West's 'Heartless.'

To direct her nervous energy, she performed behind a grand piano and gave a very interesting and compelling performance. While her voice may not have soared as acrobatically as those on Christina Aguilera's team this week, Frampton certainly gave one of the most memorable performances of the night.

Blake Shelton's Very Odd Battle Round Pairing on 'The Voice' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted May 25th 2011 3:19AM
Serabee & Dia Frampton, 'The Voice'These Battle Rounds on 'The Voice' (Tue., 10PM ET on NBC) have certainly created some memorable duets. But sometimes the union of voices creates a performance that's so bizarre it's virtually indescribable.

It was definitely the case with Serabee and Dia Frampton this week. They were paired up by Blake Shelton, and while it could have possibly worked, Serabee seemed to do all she could to make 'You Can't Hurry Love' unrecognizable. If Frampton hadn't been singing the actual melody, it would have been completely ridiculous.

It was as if Serabee thought that by singing runs and by treating Dia as a back-up singer so she could perform vocal acrobatics, she was going to impress the judges. Instead, she left them scratching their heads.
