Oprah surprises audience with her Favorite Things

November 19, 2010 (CHICAGO)

The audience was full of people Oprah calls community heroes, those who have been givers in their daily lives and work.

Oprah says she wanted to give the ultimate giveback.

Prizes awarded include diamond watches, cashmere sweaters, custom closets, Blu-ray players, and 3-D televisions.

The ultimate gift was saved for last.

The Black Eyed Peas also performed.

Oprah says they had a few paramedics on standby as a precaution for the excited audience members.

If you missed this morning's show, you can watch the rebroadcast tonight at 11:05 on ABC 7.
