Can you believe TRL has been on the air for 10 years?! I know! I didn’t know that show was on anymore, either. I think the last time I watched I had just gotten home from (high) school and called in my vote (for Christina Aguilera, duh!) to 1-800-VOTE-MTV. And I don’t think I even had a cell phone yet!
Well, TRL is still on…but not for long. MTV execs have decided to give in to the low ratings and close the doors on Total Request Live this November. The final show will be a major spectacle with tons of popstars, bands and former hosts coming back for the big goodbye. (Maybe they will play a full song for once? One can only hope!)
TRL was over for me when Carson Daly left and all those weird/random/unknown hosts started comin’ in (and then Carson got all rexy on us). But I guess other people sorta liked the randoms, so in honor of the end of the TRL era, I put together a little gallery of some of the bigger TRL hosts.
Which of these fools is your favorite TRL host? (Names in order of pics if you can’t put a name to a face.)
