The celebs descended on Chicago on Tuesday to celebrate Oprah’s last days on The Oprah Â Winfrey Show. Wow what an amazing sight to see…13K people packed into the stadium Chicago’s United Center to celebrate all the good years and TV Oprah has given us!
According to People this is a little sneak peak to what we can expect…
“Having fun?” Winfrey asked about 13,000 audience members packed into Chicago’s United Center â€“ which was stocked with 13,000 boxes of tissue â€“ for the taping of two shows that will air May 23 and May 24. “So am I! So darn cool!” (Winfrey’s final episode will tape next week and air on May 25.)
Tom Hanks, who acted as master of ceremonies Tuesday night, told Winfrey, “You are surrounded by nothing but love” before introducing a video of viewers talking about how their lives have been positively impacted by the talk show that’s lasted 25 years.
“I feel the love, and I thank you for it,” Winfrey told the audience at one point, adding that the viewers present and around the world “honor me in the deepest way possible.”
“They have literally risen up to change the world,” Berry said of Winfrey’s viewers. “The essence of The Oprah Winfrey Show is that we’re all more alike than we are different.”
What a goodbye, right!
