As The Oprah Winfrey Show comes to an end, we're all convinced it will go out with a bang , but we're just not sure about how loud. Producers of the show remain mum on what star-studded surprises are in store for both the queen of daytime talk and her world-renowned show. 

On May 17, producers for the show have planned a farewell episode filled with celebrities and past guests surprising the media mogul. The farewell -- dubbed Surprise Oprah! A Farewell Spectacular -- is scheduled to be double-taped at Chicago's United Center and will air May 23 and 24, Oprah's second- and third-to-last episodes. 

Oprah has made it known in the past that she hates surprises, but producers say she has agreed to the event. More than 154,000 ticket requests were received by Harpo productions for the farewell taping, while the center's capacity is only 20,000. Some feel the tickets could be more coveted than the Super Bowl.

As for Oprah's final show, nothing can really be said because no one is willing to discuss it. Experts say that Oprah's star-studded affair suggests that she'll have a quieter and more intimate finale in her Harpo studios. 

Only time can tell. Whatever the case, we're prepared for some tears -- both from the viewers and the talk-show queen herself.
