Oh my God! Only four days, 8 hours, and 25 minutes till the last TRL! As we move ever closer to the finale of Total Request Live—the show that defined pop’s pre-millennial resurgence—new details are emerging on who might show up on that last, bittersweet day. Billboard.com is reporting that hip-hoppers Ludacris, Snoop Dog, 50 Cent, and the stubbornly irrelevant Nelly will be performing this coming Sunday, as will Beyoncé, Fall Out Boy, and the Backstreet Boys. Kid Rock, Christina Aguilera, Hilary Duff, Mariah Carey, and reunited N-Syncers Justin Timberlake and JC Chasez are also planning on stopping by. And, of course, what would a TRL party be without nu-metal fun-boys like Fred Durst and Jonathan Davis? Presumably one without kilts and backward baseball caps. Though we’re most excited about the return of Jesse Camp—the impossibly lanky teenager who won MTV’s “Wanna Be a VJ” contest in 1998 with a little help from an Internet hacker before falling off the map two years later.
Finally, Idolator has confirmed that MTV has added a half hour to the Sunday, November 16th show. That means 30 more minutes of screaming tweens and off-script embarrassment.
