Dia Frampton may have lost out to Javier Colon on Wednesday, when the debut season of NBC's talent competition The Voice came to an end. However, the sweet-voiced songstress still managed to claim one of the most winning moments of the show.
Frampton was joined by country's currently reigning it-girl, Miranda Lambert, on stage to duet on Lambert's award-winning ballad, "The House That Built Me." The result was, simply, bittersweet perfection.
As for Frampton's coach--and Lambert's husband--Blake Shelton? Well, he was almost the best part of the performance. Every time the camera panned to him, his face showed barely restrained emotion.
"It finally hit me, watching that," Shelton explained, when asked by host Carson Daly if he had any comments after the duet. "I know now why I get so emotional when I'm around you...watching you standing there singing that song with my wife, it makes sense to me. You're family to me now. And I love you, I really do. I'm so proud of you." Awww!
Although he was undoubtedly let down by Frampton's loss Wednesday, the ribald Blake Shelton we all know and love returned in full force Thursday morning. He took to his Twitter account to report: "Oh hell.. Woke up and read that I signed up for Season 2 of The Voice... Damn you Bacardi!!! I was going to retire!!!!"
