TRL Goes Out With A Bang

Published: Monday 17th Nov 2008 by Sam
After more than a decade on the air, MTV’s flagship show, Total Request Live (TRL), aired its final episode last night. Filmed live from New York’s famed Times Square, ‘Total Finale Live’ boasted performances from Beyonce, 50 Cent and Ludacris, Nelly and Snoop Dogg. Check out the performances below:

Beyonce – If I Were A Boy, Single Ladies & Crazy In Love

50 Cent – Medley

Ludacris, Nelly, Snoop – Medley

Awesome performances all round! Beyonce, though…wow…she really is on some next platform. Three back to back performances of vocally taxing songs and she still delivers. Hottest Chick In The Game with good reason…

Anyway, it’s kind of a shame that TRL is ending. No matter your locality/nationality, you’ve likely heard of the once popular show. Hell, even, other markets tried to launch their own version (does anyone else remember the crapper than crap UK version?). I guess all good things must come to an end. Word has it, FN’MTV is to replace it.

Your thoughts?

    beyonce was boring. fillin the crowd up with gay guys and tweens is gonna make it seem like the crowd is goin nuts cause that is to whom she caters. and following single ladies with crazy in love just shows how she hasnt changed in the 5 years she has been solo…..
