"THE VOICE"-DANIELLE WINS
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- It's a heck of a way to start a career. Sixteen-year-old Danielle Bradbery never had a big singing gig or a vocal lesson. But she wins season-four of "The Voice." It's also the third win for coach Blake Shelton. Danielle was too stunned to say much and couldn't get through the song to close the show. Indie rocker Michelle Chamuel (sham-yoo-EL') is the runner-up. Her coach was first-timer Usher. The Swon Brothers finished third. They were coached by Shelton, too. The two-hour finale featured a host of guest performers, including Cher and Pitbull.

"MAD MEN" SEASON FINALE
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Just as Don Draper becomes more aware of his mortality, Matthew Weiner is very aware that "Mad Men's" days are numbered. Weiner is the creator and head writer of the show. Sunday's episode is not only the last one of season six, it has to set up the final season of the series. But Weiner says he didn't worry about any of that. He says it'll be like all the other season finales because he writes them as if they're the last episodes of the series anyway.

PAM FROM "TRUE BLOOD" UPSET WITH STARBUCKS
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Anyone who knows Pam from "True Blood" knows you don't want to be on her bad side. So, Starbucks might want to watch its back. Kristin Bauer has started an online petition on Change.org to protest Starbucks' policy that requires you to get a lid for your drink. Bauer says it would help the environment if Starbucks could cut down on the 11 million lids she says are given out every day. She says she doesn't need a lid because she "graduated from a sippy cup" when she was five. More than seven-thousand signatures have been collected so far.
