Season 1 of The Voice USA debuted on NBC on April 26, 2011 and ended on June 29, 2011. Former TRL host Carson Daly hosted the show with Alison Haislip as the social media correspondent. Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green, and Christina Aguilera served as the coaches.
WinnerEditThis season was won by singer-songwriter Javier Colon.
The show first attracted attention due to the unusual format. It also gained attention due to various contestants such as Frenchie Davis and Vicci Martinez having tried out for other shows such as American Idol. However, the show's rules state that as long as the contestant currently isn't under management or has an existing record deal, it is OK for them to try out.
The show proved to be very successful, resulting in NBC renewing it for a second season.
