  • Winfrey finale devoted to fans

    CHICAGO — There were no free cars or vacations. No favorite things or makeovers. No celebrity guests on stage — though there were plenty in the audience.
    The finale of Oprah Winfrey’s talk show, taped Tuesday and aired Wednesday, was all about the one thing that made her a billion-dollar success: the unique connection she made with millions of viewers for 25 years. In what she called her “love letter” to fans, she made clear that to her, all those TV friendships went both ways.
    “Something in me connected with each of you in a way that allowed me to see myself in you and you in me,” Winfrey said. “I listened and grew, and I know you grew along with me.”

    Football star is new ‘Dancing’ champ 

    LOS ANGELES — Hines Ward added a disco-ball trophy to his Super Bowl shelf Tuesday night after he samba-ed his way to the “Dancing With the Stars” championship.
    The Steelers wide receiver and former Super Bowl MVP won the title, besting actresses Kirstie Alley and Chelsea Kane to become the season 12 champ.
    “You are the MVP of ‘Dancing With the Stars’ season 12,” judge Carrie Ann Inaba said after Ward and professional partner Kym Johnson finished their last dance. “You learned how to lead the dancing, not only in the dance, but you led your partner out of injury. You dance with heart and it shows.”

  • Label sues Tim McGraw for breach of contract 


    NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Tim McGraw and Curb Records could be headed to court over an unreleased album.
    The independent record label filed a breach-of-contract lawsuit last week against McGraw, claiming the country superstar failed to provide a fifth and final album that met contractual obligations under their deal by an April deadline.
    McGraw turned in an album last fall called “Emotional Traffic,” and a No. 1 single from those sessions has been released. But the label contends the singer did not record the songs on the album during a contractually stipulated window, thus breaking the deal.
