Oh Chelsea Handler, how everyone will miss you on E! Or, at least, what appeared to be half of Hollywood will miss you.

Last night, Chelsea hosted the last episode of her talk show, Chelsea Lately, which started seven years ago back in 2007. And of course she left with a bang (and a couple of laughs). She pulled out all the stops to bring dozens of big Hollywood names to her studio to offer their goodbyes.

Mary McCormack, Jennifer Aniston and Sandra Bullock, who appeared on Chelsea’s first-ever episode of Chelsea Lately, all came back (with helpful name cards for anyone who has been living under a rock).

They each read her speeches in a mini Chelsea Handler roast (disguised as an intervention) where they criticized everything about Chelsea, from her poor personal hygiene to her lack of “cool.” Chelsea just sat there and took it all with a smile.

“Never once have you let your job get in the way of your drinking problem,” Mary said earnestly.

Jennifer bemoaned to Chelsea, “My security guard caught you douching with Listerine on camera!”

“I learned something important today. You’re not funny. You’re not cool,” Sandra said before she brought out Chelsea’s ex-fling, 50 Cent.

For the final segment, Chelsea brought together the likes of Gwen Stefani, Avril Lavigne, Gerard Butler, Tim Gunn, Josh Gad (of Frozen fame) and Fergie to sing her a farewell ballad.

Yes, even Tim Gunn sings.

The song is full of witty rhymes like, “There was that time when she tried to quit before/ but then Tiger Woods started texting all those whores!”

Among the non-singing celebrities, see if you can spot Alison Janney, Anna Farris, Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus and Tim Allen.

Alanis Morissette sang, “She never held back her strong point of view/ She offended blacks, Asians and the Jews.”

Watch the whole song below:

Chelsea left E! to star in her own Netflix show, as of yet untitled, which you can watch in early 2016!
