Unlike its nemesis on Fox, there's no judging controversy on The Voice. At least not yet.

Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green will all return for the competition's second season.

The Voice Judges Panel

"Our fantastic coaches were integral to the tremendous success of The Voice this year and we are thrilled that they are all returning," Paul Telegdy, Executive Vice President of NBC, said in a statement. "We look forward to building season two and making The Voice an even greater experience for fans."

The NBC hit crowned Javier Colon as its first champion this week and will return in January.

But those who watched this singer's performances throughout the competition couldn't have been that shocked.

Under the guidance of coach Adam Levine - who says his team member won because his vocals are "so powerful and special" - Colon improved each week - and we've got the video evidence to prove it!

Sit back and watch a slew of Colon's renditions below, from his early auditions to his finale duet with Stevie Nicks...

The final four contestants on The Voice took to the stage a total of eight times last night.

We were treated to one original song by Dia, Javier, Beverly and Vicci; along with one duet with their Coach. The praise flowed all night from the judges, but viewers will get the final say.

Did Dia's hip version of "I Won't Back Down" win you over? Or were you instead moved to tears by Beverly and Christina teaming up on a version of "Beautiful?"

Miranda Lambert, country star and wife of The Voice coach Blake Shelton, will perform a duet with contestant Dia Frampton on Wednesday's finale.

"Miranda is an amazing artist and it will be fascinating to see her blend her talents with those of Dia," said Paul Telegdy, NBC V.P. of programming.

"This special duet is what The Voice represents to our audience."

Here's Dia's performance in the semifinals. She's a contender!

NBC's statement continued:

"Together, Miranda and Blake, who represent a true power couple in country music, will help provide a memorable finale for our first season."

Miranda Lambert said, "I am thrilled to perform on my favorite new show. It's been a joy watching my husband grow so attached to his team. Truthfully, I am a little jealous that I am not a coach myself. I can't wait to be a part of it."

Frampton will compete against Javier Colon, Beverly McClellan and Vicci Martinez on June 28; the winner will be announced the next night.

Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert got married last month.

Tuesday night, The Voice top eight performed for a spot in the finals. Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton scored their team's singers. Those scores, along with America's votes, determined who advances.

So who got sent home and who's on to the final four?

Before we get to that, the show opened with all eight semifinalists singing a medley of "Freedom" and "Faith" by George Michael. It was pretty great:

On to the good and bad news. Each coach submitted a score, dividing up 100 points between their two members. America's votes were then added in, with equal weight, establishing who advanced and whose dreams ended.

The Voice highlighted its final eight contestants last night.

But instead of focusing on the performances, Twitter was alive this morning with buzz over one of Adam Levine's critiques.

As seen below, in praising Nakia for his cover of “Whataya Want From Me,” the Maroon 5 singer took a few seemingly random jabs at Adam Lambert.

“I’m not familiar with that song, but you just forced me to like it,” Levine said. “I’m pretty sure, although I’ve never heard that song before, that you probably sang it better than the person that sang it originally."

Was Levine simply giving Nakia props? Perhaps. But his repeated references to being unfamiliar with the original song and artist have raised the ire of Lambert lovers.
