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."

Adam LevineThe dust has barely had time to settle after 'The Voice' champion was crowned before thoughts inevitably start turning to Season 2 of NBC's breakout hit show.

The celebrity coaches -- Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton -- were a huge hit with the TV audience and helped propel the show to massive ratings.

But, given their own music careers, and the fact that they're not joining the finalists out on the road on 'The Voice' tour, can they be persuaded to return next year?

Speaking after last night's finale, Levine told 'The Hollywood Reporter' "That's the question that everyone's asking me. I'd hate to say for sure, but I think so. If they'll have me, I'd be delighted to be back."

!!!SPOILER ALERT!!! If you haven't watched 'The Voice' finale yet, and don't want to know who won, don't keep reading after the jump.

Tomorrow, another hatchet job will send four of them home, leaving each Coach with only one contender for the finale.

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.
