Where are they now: Season 1 'Voice' finalists

  • The show’s runner- ups have also seen success -- one even opened for BB King
Where are they now: Season 1 'Voice' finalists

Tuesday night NBC's “The Voice” will crown season two’s winner, and while there can be only one person to take home the title, all of the final contestants should get ready for some life-changing moments. As we’ve seen with last year's top four, success after competing on a reality TV singing show is right around the corner. Last year’s finalists will all be back on Tuesday's season finale as well, but here’s a look at what they have been up to since their own finale performances.

Of course we should start with the show’s inaugural winner Javier Colon. With the help of his “Voice” mentor Adam Levine, the struggling singer was able to capture America’s heart and named “The Voice.” With his new title came a record deal and the release of “Come Through For You.” Showbiz Tonight talked to Colon after a taping of “The Voice” after last week's semifinals and he said his life has been “awesome” since last year’s win.

Colon performed at the Christmas tree lighting at Rockefeller Center and had the chance to share the stage with one of his idols, Stevie Wonder.  This summer Colon will head to Washington to sing on the White House lawn for the Fourth of July. Plus, he tells Showbiz Tonight he’ll be doing a few shows with Maroon Five.

Coming in second place on “The Voice” was Dia Frampton. She released her debut album, Red, in December. The album features collaborations with Kid Cudi and her “Voice” mentor Blake Shelton. Showbiz Tonight caught up with Frampton, who also walked the "Voice" red carpet after the semifinal show, and asked her what was new in her world. “I’ve been touring with Blake January through March as his opening act,” she said.

Her success doesn’t stop there. Frampton is currently touring with The Fray and has a very busy schedule of tour dates set for the summer.

Beverly McClellan rocked out to Janis Joplin’s “Piece of My Heart” in the blind auditions last year and caught the attention of both Levine and Christina Aguilera. McClellan ultimately went with Aguilera as her “Voice” mentor and found huge success after coming in third on the show. In February, McClellan was invited to play at the Kick-Off for Grammy week and met celebs including Sharon Osbourne, Steve Vai and Bret Michels. A month later McClellan opened up for BB King at the House of Blues in Chicago, Illinois. On June 2nd McClellan will perform at the 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards in San Francisco.

Last but certainly not least is Vicci Martinez who was mentored by Cee Lo Green during “The Voice” competition. Since coming in fourth place, Martinez is  out with an EP “Come Along,” and her album should be coming out in June.  Martinez also has a number of show dates set up for the summer.
