TRL VJ's: Past and Present

Last night, MTV aired a live final TRL show, titled Total Finale Live. The show ran an amazing three hours and featured, like, a million guests, including: Beyonce, Fall Out Boy, Hilary Duff, Diddy, Christina Aguilera, Miley Cyrus, and so many more.

Carson Daly, the original host of the show, came back to co-host, along with every single co-host in TRL history.

And a rather touching moment that continued throughtout the show was courtesy of Taylor Swift, who carried around a TRL yearbook and had each and every guest sign! Aww.

Other highlights include:

  • Travis Barker, in his first interview since the deadly plane crash, telling the crowd via sattellite that “every day gets better” and he’s “already playing my drums again.” He’s back in the studio as well.
  • Diddy tearing up as co-host Damien Fahey recapped his 30+ appearances on the show courtesy of old clips. Total Finale Live marked Diddy’s 37th appearance.
  • Former *NSYNC members Justin Timberlake and JC Chasez reunited on stage.
  • Britney Spears held the #1 spot for “…Baby One More Time” – the biggest TRL video of all time!
  • Killer performances by the Fall Out Boy, Beyonce, Snoop Dogg/Ludacris/Nelly, and the Backstreet Boys

It was a fitting tribue. TRL premiered back in 1998, when I was in grammar school. And rushing to be in front of the television by 3 p.m. was just so important. I’ll certainly miss it.
