Oprah filmed two of her final three episodes yesterday at the United Center in Chicago. If you were expecting grand that’s what precisely what you’ll get. The last two episodes were literally jam-packed with celebrities all to celebrate Lady O in her final season. Oprah’s leaving her enormously popular talk show, after 25 years, to devote her attention to the OWN network. Can you believe she’s been on air for a quarter of a century?Amazing.
Anyway, the final two episodes included performances from Beyoncé, Usher, Stevie Wonder and Patti Labelle among others.
Athletes Emmitt Smith and Michael Jordan were in attendance. There were also several actors in the place to be including, Tom Hanks, Jamie Foxx, Halle Berry, Will and Jada and Tom Cruise were there as well. (No surprise that Tom would make it back around, considering he used Oprah’s couch as a trampoline.)
The performances will air on May 23 and the final episode on May 25.
This should make for really good television. Are you excited to watch?
