Celebrities Join Chelsea Handler for a Musical Sendoff

Chelsea Handler said goodbye to broadcast TV in the splashiest way Tuesday -- bringing in the A-listers.

The finale of her E! late-night show, “Chelsea Lately,” featured appearances by Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Aniston, 50 Cent, Miley Cyrus and Ellen DeGeneres.

The biggest moment occurred with a celebrity-crammed final segment, a musical number reminiscent of the 1980s “We Are the World” fundraiser.

Gwen Stefani kicked off the song.

“I am delighted to lead this song with my friend Chelsea Hammer,” she said, playing off of her mispronunciation during Monday’s Emmy Awards. The celebs followed, one after another. Fergie. Avril Lavigne. Tim Gunn. Sammy Hagar. LeAnn Rimes. Dave Grohl. Gerard Butler. Alanis Morissette. No, this wasn’t USA for Africa, but the emotion seemed poignant and real.

“Goodbye to E!, it’s time to move on,” the group sang. “She wants to sing, she wants to dance and get her groove on.”

Handler hosted the show for seven years.

Her next gig, a Netflix talk show, will debut in 2016.
