The Biggest Names in Pop to Say Farewell to ‘TRL’
After just over 10 years, MTV will finally bid farewell to Total Request Live on Sunday.
The network initially announced that Beyoncé was the first to sign up to perform on the special two-hour finale of the music countdown show.
But since then, Billboard reports that a slew of other artists have made themselves available for the event, including Ludacris, Snoop Dogg and Nelly in a one-off performance, plus 50 Cent, Fall Out Boy, Backstreet Boys, Justin Timberlake, Kid Rock, JC Chasez, Christina Aguilera, Travis Barker, Mariah Carey, Taylor Swift, Hilary Duff, Fred Durst and Korn’s Jonathan Davis.
The only person missing from that lineup is Britney Spears, who along with Timberlake and Chasez’s boy band NSync, as well as Backstreet Boys, ushered in the whole teen-pop craze that spawned TRL back in 1998.
Oh, well. Guess she’s got her hands full as of late.
Throw in original host Carson Daly and it’ll truly be must-see TV.
