[Spoiler alert: The following story reveals the winner of The Voice's fourth season.]
Blake Shelton got a very special birthday present from The Voice voters on Tuesday: his third victory in a row!
After Monday's performance finale, there's nothing left to do but wait — and theorize — while The Voice tabulates the votes and iTunes downloads.So who do you think will win: Team Blake's The Swon Brothers, the show's first successful duo; Danielle Bradbury, the impressive ingénue; or Team Usher's Michelle Chamuel, the eclectic indie singer?
According to Adam Levine, we should expect Danielle to take home top honors Tuesday night.
On Monday, The Voice's final three acts will battle it out to determine the Season 4 champion (or champions, in one case). But one contestant has already been crowned in our hearts. So forget Team Blake's Danielle Bradbury and The Swon Brothers. Season 4 is all about Team Usher's Michelle Chamuel, and here's why:
Usher, Michelle Chamuel
It's going to be pretty tough for The Voice's other superstar coaches to top this!

TV executives must have been happy to put a fork in the 2012-13 season. Ratings dropped across the board for broadcast networks due to fading reality franchises and the failure to launch any major new scripted hits. Cable also slumped, with audience levels flat compared with the previous season. And with the number of viewers who time-shift growing, the path to success is more treacherous than ever. Here are the shows that navigated the bumps — and the ones that became ratings road kill.

Another May weekend, another deluge of season finales — though none are likely to blow the mind with as much daring, panache and imaginative fervor as BBC America's gloriously inventive Doctor Who (Saturday, 8/7c), which signs off until next time-travel with one of its trippiest yet emotionally powerful episodes to date. Steven Moffat's typically clever script, brimming with colorful incident and characters grandly heroic or villainous, finds a nifty way to salute the 50-year history of Doctors as we learn more about the impossibly irrepressible companion Clara (the smashing Jenna-Louise Coleman), first seen in a cosmic haze — "I don't know where I am ... Sometimes I think I'm everywhere at once" — with only one constant to guide her: "I have to save the Doctor." That same impulse prompts lizard lady Vastra, her wife Jenny and the stalwart Strax to summon Clara to a psychic conference call, interrupted by the menacing "Whisper Men" (reminiscent of the ghoulish Gentlemen from Buffy's classic "Hush" episode).
