eyeLove it! "Oprah's Feeling"

On September 10, 2009 the Black Eyed Peas performed at Oprah's 24th Kickoff Party. But they didn't perform in just any boring way; the crowd at the Oprah taping in Chicago did a special flash mob dance to the Black Eyed Peas live performance of the song, "I Gotta Feeling." This is one of the coolest things I've seen in a long time. Oprah was amazed by it and it was so cool to see how humbled she was watching it.

I'm still shocked as to how all of these people could learn that dance and do it on Michigan Avenue in downtown Chicago. They were so sycnchronized and man, it was perfect!

Well I guess my shock can be put to rest because this how it all happened:

To celebrate her 24th season premiere, Oprah took over Chicago's famed Michigan Avenue for a fun-filled, star-studded event! Before thousands of fans filled the streets, crews worked overtime to get the stage and lighting assembled.

As the 5 p.m. showtime neared, more than 21,000 people gathered on
Michigan Avenue to see performances by the Black Eyed Peas, magician Criss Angel, Jennifer Hudson, James Taylor and Rascal Flatts.

The men and women of Oprah's production crew who helped make the kickoff party possible gathered in front of the stage before the show.

Before the show began, trained dancers taught audience members choreographed steps. When the Black Eyed Peas kicked off the party with their song, "Oprah Feelin'," the dance spread through the crowd, much to Oprah's surprise!

To pull off this flash mob, producers brought in the creative masterminds behind the T-Mobile viral sensation, award-winning director Michael Gracey and choreographer Ashley Wallen.

As the Black Eyed Peas sang "Oprah Feelin'," the audience performed their choreographed dance number—a history-making moment! As the music faded, thousands stood together with one finger held in the air.

Once the flash mob dance ended, Oprah, Fergie and will.i.am gave the audience their due. "That was the coolest!" Oprah said. "Woo, that was fun."
