Joan Rivers’ funeral was held on Sept. 7, and as she wished, it was a star-studded affair with celebrity guests like Sarah Jessica Parker, Howard Stern and Rosie O’Donnell. Rivers had also wanted X-Men star Hugh Jackman to perform at her funeral after seeing him in a musical, The Boy From Oz, 10 years ago. Jackman sang a song from that musical titled “Quiet Please, There’s a Lady on Stage.”

Jackman described the experience on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon as “uplifting” and “moving” but also “funny.”
