JOAN RIVERS GETS HOLLYWOOD SEND OFF: JOAN RIVERS' funeral wasn't quite the red carpet event she'd wanted, but it was definitely a star-studded event. The celebrity lineup was seriously impressive. The names included . . .

Ozzy, Sharon and Kelly Osbourne, Giuliana and Bill Rancic, Kathy Griffin, Rosie O'Donnell, Kristin Chenoweth, Hota Kotb, Kathie Lee Gifford, Whoopi Goldberg, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, Donald and Melania Trump, Judge Judy Sheindlin, Michael Kors, Barbara Walters, Rachael Ray, Joy Behar, Dr. Oz, Wanda Sykes, and Diane Sawyer.

There were several musical performances as well. HUGH JACKMAN sang a song called "Quiet Please, There's a Lady Onstage", from the musical "The Boy from Oz," and The New York City Gay Men's Chorus sang "Hey Big Spender" and "There Is Nothing Like a Dame". As mourners left the Temple Emanu-El, bagpipes played "New York, New York" and "Give My Regards to Broadway".

Here's video of Melissa and Cooper accompanying Joan's casket to the hearse after the service.
