Inside Oprah’s star-studded farewell

More than 150,000 "Oprah Winfrey Show" fans wanted to get in to the talk show host's star-studded spectacular last night, but just 20,000 fans made it.

The lucky ticket holders for tapings of two of Oprah Winfrey’s final shows lined up outside Chicago’s United Center Tuesday afternoon - anxious to escape a strong spring wind and eager to see what had been billed as an all-star farewell to the Queen of Talk.

Cousins Alisia Brown and Nicole Bailey told CNN they scored last minute tickets to the spectacular from none other than Winfrey's best friend, Gayle King.
