Beyoncé, 50 Cent, Backstreet Boys and Fall Out Boy tapped to perform

After 2200 shows, and about ten years on the air, MTV’s legendary countdown show Total Request Live is leaving, but not without a bang. 

MTV is planning a star-studded farewell to TRL, hosted by the show’s original host, Carson Daly, and current host, Damien Fahey. The network has also called in Beyonce, 50 Cent, Backstreet Boys, Fall Out Boy, and surprise guests to perform. 

The finale, which has been named “Total Finale Live” will also feature a look back on all the teeny-bop popcorn memories on the show. 

“In retrospect, the name said it all: the total youth entertainment experience, shaped for the first time at the request of its audience, all going down live every day in Times Square and in homes across America,” said Brian Graden, President of Entertainment, MTV & VH1. 

“Total Finale Live” will air Sunday, November 16 at 8 p.m. eastern time.
