The Voice reigning champion Javier Colon has accepted Simon Cowell's idea for the ultimate musical showdown - a battle between TV singing competition winners!

Simon suggested pitting the champs of X Factor, The Voice and American Idol together in a singing smackdown, with the goal of determining who reigns supreme.

Javier took to Twitter to accept Simon's "super final" challenge:

"So @simoncowell recently proposed a face off btw Idol/Xfactor/Voice winners. I really respect the other shows and winners a lot but if U want a battle I'm IN!"

American Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe also responded on Twitter last week, but he was less willing, making a thinly-veiled claim to Idol's superiority:

"@simoncowell suggests the IDOL winner should take on the voice and x-factor winners. The problem is the Idol winner will be a star by then."

Ouch! Idol is really digging in against its critics these days.

With X Factor allowing managed talent to participate this season, and The Voice getting bigger ratings than ever this winter, the ante has been upped.

Will past and future champions step up to the plate?! This show would likely never happen for myriad reasons, but we ask you: Which show is the best?

Even though Javier Colon won The Voice Wednesday night, it still hasn’t completely sunk in yet. The 34-year-old says he's still in disbelief.

“I was 100 percent in my mind, I was ready and prepared for Carson to say, ‘The winner of The Voice is Dia Frampton," he tells Celebuzz

"I was going to be okay with that because I absolutely love Dia ... She is amazing and deserved a win as much as we all did. We all have the same dreams and are trying to succeed in a very hard business."

"But in that moment, when he announced my name, it was unexpected. I am very, very thankful to those who voted for me. It was so close."

Below are a few excerpts from Celebuzz's talk with Javier:

On Adam Levine's reaction off the air: "He was emotional about me and my situation. He genuinely wanted me to win so badly. It wasn’t that he wanted his team to beat the others, it was because he wanted me to succeed."

"To see him get emotional meant a lot to me because it reaffirmed the fact that he really cares. We’re going to be friends for a very long time."
