Oprah's Star-Studded Farewell Show: Celebrities Pack Chicago's United Center

Tens of thousands of Oprah Winfrey fans lined up at Chicago's United Center Tuesday evening for the taping of "Surprise Oprah! A Farewell Spectacular," which may be the biggest gathering of A-list celebrities that the city has ever seen.

More than 154,000 people requested tickets to the two-show taping, and the lucky ticket winners were asked to be at the United Center by 5 p.m. when doors opened. The first taping began around 7 p.m., when Tom Hanks and Tom Cruise surprised the biggest star of the show--Winfrey herself. Then, a performance by Patti LaBelle and Josh Groban, a confession from Madonna, a video salute from Tina Fey and Steve Carell, a Dakota Fanning moment and a performance by Beyonce--all in the first hour.

Beyonce, who sang and danced to "Girls (Who Rule the World)" was reportedly unhappy with her first performance, so she did it again. The first show ended with appearances by Diane Sawyer, Halle Berry, Katie Holmes, Queen Latifah and a performance by Rascall Flatts.

The second part of the show (which will air on May 24) began around 9:30 p.m., when Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan surprised Winfrey. Actor Will Smith introduced Jordan, describing the United Center as the "house that Michael Jordan built." His statue sits outside the building, where led the Chicago Bulls to six NBA championships during the 1990s.

"M.J. is in the house!" Winfrey yelled.

Michael Jordan was there, but is he called MJ too? Never heard of it. When MJ is said I can think of Michael Jackson only. And when you google MJ, all you find is Michael Jackson related web pages.

Yes, in Chicago, MJ stands for Michael Jordan quite frequently.

I thought his nickname is Air Jordan? Magic Johnson is another MJ. Wow lots of MJs around but I know only one of them.  :mrgreen:  mj_dance/

It is. But he's referred to in Chicago as MJ for short. On a national level MJ is Michael Jackson. In Chicago MJ is Michael Jordan.

Sure thing. I did a double take when I saw your title but then I realized she meant MJ=Jordan. People were watching her and this final show too.

Yes, but Oprah's not a local talk-show, she's national/international. Therefore I vote she knows what she's saying by "MJ". She knows she's covered and innocent-looking by saying MJ because of local usage, but what she's really dropping is "MJ's in the house"! For real.  Just my take/hope!! mj_bad/ Something's going on--I can feel it!

Oprah Winfrey, is all over the world, Mj for Michael Jordan is only in Chicago. So she knows that, why is she saying that, so we can put our hopes up? Or unless there will be 2 MJ's?? Just a hunch.

And if we think about how she used THIS IS IT, THIS IS THE MOMENT for her show, it is really interesting to me how she calls M. Jordan as MJ. Maybe there is nothing behind it and she's calling him with his nickname only but maybe she is trying to refer Michael Jackson. Can be both too.

I should probably add that in Space Jam, Bugs Bunny called Michael Jordan "MJ". As did a couple other characters if I recall correctly!

I absolutely agree!!! When she announced she was ending her show she told us that day. The last show was going to BLOW OUR MIND. My first thoughts were MJ and it sure wasnt Michael Jordan lol. MJ and MJ were good friends though :) They made a video together  ;)  8-) Yep i think somethin is up  8-)

It is very possible that she was aware of how it sounded and was purposely vague. It's sort of weird to announce Michael Jordan as MJ. Almost disrespectful.

I think people are seriously over-thinking this.  Oprah was referring to Michael Jordan, plain and simple.  He isn't only known as MJ in Chicago.  I've heard several basketball fans refer to Michael Jordan as MJ, so it isn't unheard of in the US at all.  I also don't think it was disrespectful for Oprah to call him MJ.  I'm certainly not a big fan of Oprah's, but Michael Jordan didn't seem to mind, plus it's no different than sports announcers calling him Jordan or MJ.

I agree, like the old man dancing, and the old man sitting next to Prince watching the basket ball game. Ok now lets go back to the topic. Oprah knows that there is only one MJ and it is Michael Jackson, her show is international. I don't watch basketball, even though I use to play in high school and we won the championship. It brings confusion to people. Unless she is not in the hoax and figures that Michael is dead, so by calling Michael Jordan MJ no harm done..  We wouldn't expect anything of it. Only my thoughts.

Michael Jordan is absolutely internationally known he had more fans in China than the USA. He is constantly referred to as 'MJ' and his fame rivaled Michael Jacksons easily, especially in the 90's. To even bat an eye at this as if it's a clue to Michael Jackson being alive is ridiculous.

I'm sure you're very right (and my post hasty :oops: ) but in a way the Jam video was like a dual between the two MJ's.
http://www.allmichaeljackson.com/musicvideo/jam.html  and it gives the idea that our M Jackson wins, because not only can he totally outdance M Jordan, but he (special effects) scores from far away with his foot in a backkick. You can't say that Oprah isn't totally aware of what the vast number of M Jackson fans are thinking when she said it. She knew exactly the stir and mixed emotions it created around the world. She ain't no dummy. And IF Michael is truly alive, and IF Oprah knews about it, then this was a set-up.  M Jordan sure doesn't have the genius to pull off this mind-blowing hoax.

I can't believe how some still underestimate Michael Jackson (MJ).

He has been seen in stilts and towered over his brothers onstage in that pic.  Did someone here post that pic?  I'll try to find it.  Plus, in some instances, I could totally see him wearing 6 inch platforms, and etc.  To point blank think that MJ couldn't have been the man sitting with Prince at that Laker Game w/Uncle Jackie is...................?  Too much!  MJ is the Master of Excellence.  If there is a way to get it done, he can.  Did we see the man ever get/stand up?  I don't think so.  Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Last night, I was watching something on TCM (Turner Classic Movies), and they showed about how they captured certain shots, frames, slicing and dicing.  The SHOT is supposed to be the most important aspect of filming.  Shoot - I'm gone have to post this somewhere else, but I wanted to point out the obvious, and it is that MJ did the short film Ghosts in a past decade.  Could TECHNOLOGY have improved since then?  I think so.  

Would MJ have the wherewithal to take advantage of this technology?  Is he the type to incorporate the latest and greatest?  I think so.  For the ones that think MJ can disguise himself PLAYING another character like he did for the Mayor in Ghosts and for the other characters he played - please raise your virtual hand.  I know we have some more believers in him out there.  

Just because some here don't have the IMAGINATION that MJ has as explained below won't stop his SHOW.  It just happens to the The Greatest Show on Earth.  (Presently)

"Joy, Imagination, the Libido, Beauty. Sphere 7 of the Tree represents the part of Spirit that governs joy and the imagination. She is known as Het-Heru (House of Heru) in the Kamitic tradition, and Oshun in the Yoruba. It is a congregative faculty, meaning that, among other things, it is concerned with putting things together for beautiful or pleasing artistic effect. The Greeks knew this aspect of Spirit by the name Aphrodite. The Romans called her Venus, and the Babylonians called her Ishtar. The Kamau recognized that that which manifests is that which has been cultivated by the imagination. It is in this sense that Heru (the Will and its realization) is related to Het-Heru (the "house" of Heru or the place where the will is gestated -- the imagination). The Het-Heru faculty is intimately connected with that which the Kamau called Ra or life-force, and what is known as Chi to the Chinese, Kundalini to the Hindus, and ngolo (Fu-Kiau, 1991) to the Kongo people of Central Africa."

Check it out.  From wiki link below:

"During the credits, backstage footage of Jackson's make-up sessions and green screen shots reveal how he was able to play five different roles within the film; indeed, the Cast list credits him as "Maestro", "Mayor" (which explains the Mayor's impeccably Jacksonian dance moves), "Mayor Ghoul" (the horribly transformed Mayor), "Superghoul" (a giant and grotesquely deformed version of Jackson) and "Skeleton" (a CGI dancing skeleton, animated by Jackson through motion capture)."

And then of course the Magnificent video below = The Making of Ghosts.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHnvmboFic0

Geraldo interview - quote by Michael.  "I'm obssessed with creating."  

There is no one like him, because he is unique and one of a kind.  Love you boy! mj_bad/
