The final episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show will be taped Tuesday afternoon in front of over 10,000 fans at Chicago’s United Center. Oprah Winfrey‘s last show will air on Wednesday, closing out her 25-year run in one last celebrity-filled bash.
For her final set of tapings, Oprah Winfrey has pulled out all the stops, dancing on stage with John Travolta and giving surprise trips to Australia to her entire audience. The final day of the show promises to be seriously outrageous, according to all the hype. We’ll just have to wait until tomorrow to see!
“Surprise, Oprah! A Farewell Spectacular” has featured a slew of celebrity well-wishers giving their props and thanks to Oprah Winfrey for her amazing career. The celebs aren’t shy about sharing their love for Oprah off the air either. Madonna, for example, said she likes it a lot that Oprah just “doesn’t give a shit what people think.”
Kristin Chenoweth tweeted that it was the “best night of my life” when she got to sing for Oprah. Will.i.am posted on Twitter that he is going to miss The Oprah Winfrey Show and sent her his love and thanks.
Oprah Winfrey started off in Chicago in 1984 on WLS-TV’s morning talk show A.M. Chicago. A year later the show was retooled to become The Oprah Winfrey Show and the rest is history.
Just because Oprah is finally calling curtains on her talk show doesn’t mean she will be fading out of the spotlight though. On January 1st of this year, Harpo Studios launched the Oprah Winfrey Network, so we’re sure we’ll be seeing plenty of our girl for many years to come!
