More than 100,000 supporters gathered in Chicago's Grant Park to watch the president-elect's acceptance speech—including Oprah! "It was one of the most electrifying and emotional nights I have ever experienced," she says.

Although she arrived with Gayle and Stedman, Oprah says she ended up crying on someone else's shoulder. "Friends called me around the country and said, 'Who was with you?' I said, 'I don't know him, but he was very nice to me,'" Oprah says. "At one point I was just sobbing on his shoulder, mascara everywhere."

"Thank you, Mr. Man, for letting me cry on your shoulder."
