Oprah Winfrey is lining up some big names for her trip Down Under.

The daytime queen has announced the guests who will appear on the special episodes of “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” filming this week in Australia.

The usual Aussie suspects are all aboard the Oprah Train: Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban (who were just recently on “Oprah,” mind you), Olivia Newton-John and even little Bindi Irwin are confirmed as guests, according to the Herald Sun.

The shows film Tuesday at the Sydney Opera House.

There also will be a greatest-hits performance by Bon Jovi; hip-hop mogul Jay-Z will drop in “for a special surprise”; and “a one-time-only” performance with Australia‚Äôs John Foreman and his orchestra.

The episode tapings are the hottest tickets in town (or on the continent), as “Oprah” reportedly received 350,000 requests for tickets. Each show will host 6,000 people in the audience. The sold-out tickets were free and were given out through an online lottery system.

Oprah’s Australian Adventure, which will be packaged into four episodes, will air in January.
