Season one’s Team Blake finalist, Dia Frampton, will be making her big return to The Voice’s stage Tuesday night. She’ll be performing her single “Don’t Kick The Chair” with Kid Cudi. Dia is pretty excited about her big return to the NBC stage, where she will be reunited with her coach, Blake Shelton, after opening for his first headlining tour earlier this year.
Dia took to Facebook to share the news with her fans first:
“This Tuesday, Kid Cudi and I just may be hanging out on The Voice. “Don’t kick the chaaaaiiiiirrrr.” Also, on tour now with The Fray. See Tour dates. Also, more dates are coming for our 1 month tour in June!!!! Tickets on sale this weekend. XOX”
It’s Dia’s first time back on The Voice since she placed second last season. Who do you think will be the last one standing from Team Blake this year?
Dia Frampton found herself with a bit of a dilemma: Two shows booked on the same night.
The double-booking wasn’t Dia’s fault. Instead, the blame belongs with Mother Nature. Bad weather postponed her scheduled March 14 show in Reno, Nevada, where she was set to open for Blake Shelton and his Well Lit & Amplified Tour. That show has now been rescheduled for this coming Sunday March 18.
Problem solved, right? Wrong. It turns out Dia had long since been scheduled to play a solo show that night at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, California.
So now she has two shows booked on the same night. Quite the dilemma. It’s a tough call, but one Dia is handling with complete class. Here is what she posted on her Facebook page:
Yes, Reno got rebooked on the same day of our night at the Troubadour. It looks like no matter what, we’ll be disappointing someone. I wish I could be in 2 places at once… But, the troubadour has been sold out months in advance, & I know people have bought flights & hotels for that show….fans that have supported us for years. So, I truly am sorry Reno. I know you were expecting us too. I hope we can go back there in April & make it up to you…dang snowy roads! But in a few days…I’m gonna be at the Troubadour.
I say kudos to Dia for sticking with the people who have stuck with and supported her throughout the years –even before she came to fame as the runner-up on the first season of The Voice. By taking the Troubadour, she’ll be playing to a much smaller crowd. But it will be her crowd. One that she clearly cares for, respects and appreciates.
We’ll let you know when she schedules another show for Reno. It probably won’t be with Blake, but if you live anywhere in the area, it will definitely be worth your time to see her.
With the second season of The Voice in full swing, we caught up with the first season’s runner-up, Dia Frampton. Since January, she’s been opening for Blake Shelton and his “Well Lit & Amplified” tour. She’s not country, which might lead some to say she would be out of place at Blake’s show. Those people would be wrong. Very wrong.
Fact is, Frampton seems very comfortable in her shoes — or as she was Friday night at KeyArena in Seattle — out of her shoes. She performed (as she often does) barefoot. If being sans shoes isn’t a sign of comfort, then I don’t know what is!
She describes her music as “indie folk with a lemony twist.” Again, not country, but it’s catchy, clever and crowd-pleasing. It helps that it’s being delivered by Dia, who, as we all found out last year, has a certain charm and sweetness about her. She’s a little pixie with a big presence that just naturally makes people like her. When we team that with her undeniable talent, it’s easy to see why Blake tabbed her for his tour.
To help celebrate the start of The Voice’s Battle Rounds next week, we have an awesome contest thanks to the first season runner up herself! Two fans will be winning an autographed copy of Dia Frampton‘s solo album “RED” and an autographed poster of the Team Blake finalist! That’s right… both the album and poster are autographed by Dia herself! Three runners up will receive an autographed poster each.
She’s currently on tour with Blake Shelton on his “Well Lit & Amplified” tour alongside Justin Moore. She released “RED” late last year, and her current single “The Broken Ones” is rising up the charts. See the music video for that single below before entering our contest:

Tomorrow night is the final performance for Blake Shelton’s Dia Frampton, the last remaining member of Team Blake from NBC’s new hit tv show, The Voice. While the season has been highly entertaining, from the coaches bickering back and forth and to the original performances by the contestants, it all comes to an end Tuesday and Wednesday night’s results show.

What do you think? Do you think Dia will win the show this week?
It’s been a few months since Dia Frampton was named the runner-up of NBC’s first season of “The Voice.” The Team Blake Shelton finalist was just shy of first place by less than 2% between herself and Javier. We caught up with Dia, and her equally as talented and lovely sister Meg, to get all the details on their lives after The Voice, the new album, robots, why people on the internet are mean, if Meg would ever consider trying out for a new season of “The Voice,” and if it’ll be Dia Frampton or Meg & Dia touring with Blake Shelton on his 2012 “Well Lit & Amplified” tour starting in January. See if your questions made the cut below.
Dia also reveals to us her new album release date and title, her single, and the details on a song she recorded with Blake Shelton.
Congratulations to The Voice’s latest winner Danielle Bradbery! The Team Blake Shelton contestant has signed a recording contract with Big Machine Label Group as part of her winnings. She’ll be working on her debut country album shortly, with an expected release date next year in 2014.
Danielle won the fourth season of NBC’s hit reality television show, giving coach Blake Shelton a three-peat championship. He has won the show the last three seasons – and had the second-place runner up Dia Frampton in the first season. The new season of The Voice will return this Fall.
Are you excited to hear music from Danielle? Did you vote for her?
