Oprah Winfrey has received a standing ovation from thousands of her fans packed in Chicago's United Center for a farewell double-taping of her TV talk show promised to showcase Hollywood's most famous celebrities.
Tom Hanks joined Winfrey on stage. He told her that her fans just wanted to say thank you "for what `The Oprah Winfrey Show' has meant in our lives." Winfrey announced in November 2009 that she would end her show this season after 25 years.
The stadium was decorated with pictures of Winfrey at seminal moments over the course of the talk show. Boxes of tissues were on scattered seats throughout the audience. The guest lineup for "Surprise Oprah! A Farewell Spectacular" is a secret, but Winfrey's producers have promised the biggest names in music, movies and television.
