Oprah shocked Ellen on Friday's show with a surprise appearance via Skype and an invitation to appear on the cover of O magazine.

Ellen has been campaigning for Oprah to share the cover with her, speaking regularly about it on her show, Photoshopping her picture onto preexisting O covers, and even creating an Oprah-style "O Yes I Can" vision board.

On Friday's show, Oprah appeared via Skype to invite Ellen to share the magazine cover.

"When I first heard about this," Oprah said, "I thought it was such a fantastic idea. I was only sorry that I did not think of it myself. So I am calling to officially invite you on the cover of O."

"Are you serious?!" Ellen said before jumping up to run and kiss the camera. "I gotta go do a photo shoot. When do we do it? What happens?"

"This is what I need to know," Oprah said. "I heard that of course you want to wear pants, because I saw you in that prom dress and we don't want to do that again."

Oprah also confirmed that this was not a hoax.

"I'm serious about this!" she said. "In order to set a goal for yourself, a goal has to be something that's really big. I've watched the whole thing, and I believe that when you dream it and conceive it, you can have it and achieve it. And that's what's gonna happen."

"I can't believe you are serious about this, I am freaking out right now!" Ellen said. "Now my goal is gonna be for this to be the biggest selling issue you've ever had," she added.
