The End of an Era
Yes sunday night was the Total Request Finale, MTV last video show said its good bye last night with star studded guest such as Beyonce Knowles, 50 cent, Kid Rock, Nelly, Justin Timberlake etc. They showed highlights of the past 10 yrs.
They even brought back the original host Carson Daly. It was nice to go back down memory lane. Yes i am the orginal TRL junkie i watched it faithfully for five years, after that off and on based on the guest and to see Quddus.
The down fall of that of finale is like 50 said alot of artist won't have a platform. All I can say is 106 & park and if your music is not that format than your shit out of luck.
Well there is Fuse, Much Music, MTV 2 , MTVJams or MTV hits.
One moment they forgot to mention the death of Aaliyah that was a pivital moment for TRL becuase she was one of the first artist to have a video to go number one on TRL . Matter of fact it was always battle between "Are you that somebody" and Brandy & Monica "The boy is mine" Them Three chicks is the reason why I watched that show.
Over all its the end of an era, I wonder what MTV got up their sleeve? and they really need to put a bullet in there reality shows and go back to music oriented programming. Also Bring back Diary YO! MTV raps, Club MTV, and hell headbangers ball and the Rock and Jock B-ball. Yeah i am showing my age I know
R.I.P TRL 1998-2008 (106& park ratings are going to shoot thru the roof)
P.S I still love Quddus
