An Entire Generation Of Pop Stars To Say Farewell To 'TRL' On Sunday

As lamented mentioned a couple months back, after 10 years MTV's video countdown program Total Request Live is going off the air. Its final episode airs this Sunday (November 16) at 8 p.m.

And while Beyoncé was the first one to step up to the plate and announce she'd be performing on the special two-hour finale, Billboard now reports a slew of others will be joining her—including almost all the big names of late '90s teen pop (alas, no Britney Spears) that helped spawn TRL.

Also scheduled to appear on Sunday's episode are: Backstreet Boys, Justin Timberlake, Kid Rock, JC Chasez, Christina Aguilera, Travis Barker, Mariah Carey, Taylor Swift, Hilary Duff, Fred Durst and Korn's Jonathan Davis.

That's right, folks. Fred Durst.

But wait—there will also be a special performance from Nelly, Snoop Dogg and Ludacris.

Can we trade them in for a performance of Andy Dick reprising his role as Xtina's cousin Daphne Aguilera, doing "Naughty Baby Did A No-No"?

    Awww...I may have to watch this. I don't think TRL was as much a part of growing up for me as it was for most people my age, but I'm not sure I can pass up on the chance to at least see a little bit of the final episode, and there are at least a few names in that list I care about.

    If it was going to be accurate, it should be Destiny's Child, and not Beyonce. But she's got a CD to shill, so have at it, B!

    At least Justin still looks fine in a waistcoat/vest. RAR

    I'd like to see Fred & Daphne do a song together, permitting his bizkit wasn't limp, that is.
