Stars turn out in force for Oprah's farewell show

Stars were out in force for the live taping of Oprah Winfrey's penultimate episode and joining the talk show host on stage were Beyoncé and Madonna

The event took place at Chicago's United Center and the Queen of Pop herself paid homage to the influential role model Oprah has become:

"It's no secret that millions of people are inspired by Oprah. I am one of them."

"She's a self-made woman who's been at the top of her game for over 25 years and she is still kicking ass. And she is still kicking ass!"

The 'Halo' hitmaker, Beyoncé, also performed an energetic rendition of her new single 'Run The World (Girls)' to the 20,000 strong crowd that was made up of fans and celebrities alike and you can watch the clip here:
