    "It's Oprah, as soon as she speaks, as soon as she walks into a room, its something that's going to motivate, that's going to uplift you," Kelly Rowland told us. "I think God gives that gift to very few people and he gave it to her."

    "It's insane," Union said of getting awarded along with Winfrey, before gushing about the media mogul, "Very rarely do you meet people who are as advertised. She's everything and then some. And she keeps giving more, which is the true sign of power."

    Check out all the boldfaced names in attendance during today's big bash.
