MTV Is Bringing 'TRL' Back!!!! (For One Day Only)
Jellies are back. The Magic School Bus is getting a reboot. And now MTV is putting Total Request Live back on the air. Your childhood is officially back.
MTV has announced that it will reboot TRL for one day only with Ariana Grande. On July 2, TRL will hit the airwaves again with Grande, who'll perform "Problem," debut her follow-up single and talk about plans for her upcoming album. MTV hasn't announced who will host the one-day-only special engagement. (Please let it be LaLa or Carson Daly.)
TRL ran on MTV from 1998 to 2008. It was, for a certain age group, the only thing that mattered. It was the end-all, be-all of the tastemakers and, for a time there, what Carson Daly said, went. Now, it's a source of hilarious photos and performances, like this one with Christina Aguilera and JoJo.
MTV also has not announced whether Iggy Azalea will appear on TRL to perform "Problem" with Grande. The special edition episode airs on July 2 at 7 p.m.
