13,000 Oprah fans gathered at Chicago’s United Center to say farewell to “The Oprah Winfrey Show” on part one of the 3 part season finale which aired on Monday.
We were told Oprah had no idea what was going to happen on this show, and we know she doesn’t like surprises. But perhaps she had a change of heart.
Stars like Tom Hanks, Tom Cruise, Beyonce, Patti LaBelle, Josh Groban, Jackie Evancho, Madonna, Dakota Fanning, Halle Berry, Katie Holmes, Queen Latifah and Rascall Flats took the stage to honor the talk show queen who made a difference in so many people’s lives, including their own.
Madonna expressed her gratitude by saying:
‘It’s no secret that millions of people are inspired by Oprah and I am one of those people. She fights for things she believes in, even if it makes her unpopular. She has b***s and a wealth of compassion, I have learned so much from her. She’s been a self-made woman who has been on top of her game for over 25 years and she is still kicking ass!”
Part two airs today, and Winfrey’s final show airs Wednesday, May 25th.
We will definitely be tuned it!
