During the final week of The Oprah Winfrey Show, Beyoncé surprised Oprah during her farewell spectacular. "Oprah Winfrey, because of you, women everywhere have graduated to a new level of understanding of what we are, of who we are and, most importantly, of who we can be," she said.
As a wall behind her parted, Beyoncé's song "Run the World (Girls)" began to play as dancers clad in graduation caps and graduation gowns strutted into position. This showstopping performance had Oprah and thousands of fans dancing in the aisles!
