Rascal Flatts, an Oprah Winfrey fave, got to be part of her two-show send-off at Chicago’s United Center last night (May 17).

The group closed the first show with the song “I Won’t Let Go”—with the audience on its feet for the whole song, according to Access Hollywood.

Tom Cruise and his actress wife, Katie Holmes, introduced the trio. Beyoncé, Madonna, Tom Hanks, Dakota Fanning and a bunch of others also appeared for the taping.

The episode, “Surprise Oprah! A Farewell Spectacular Part I,” is set to air May 23.
