get ready

As I have told you before, this weekend marks the END of TRL. It's coming to a close after a decade of top 10 hits on MTV. :(

In order to celebrate the only music show left on MTV, I figured I'd let you know a couple IMPORTANT facts this weekend. ;)

First of all, "Total Finale Live" will be tomorrow night at 8pm with Carson Daly hosting!! And all of the other hosts throughout the years like Vanessa Minnillo, Damien Fahey, Hilarie Burton, Quddus, etc!

As for performers, we're going to see Beyonce, BACKSTREET BOYS, 50 Cent, Fallout Boy, and a special collaboration by Ludacris, Snoop Dogg, and Nelly, which I'm pretty pumped about.

Mariah Carey, Diddy of course, Justin and JC of NSYNC, Hilary Duff, Taylor Swift, Christina Aguilera and Travis Barker will also make appearances.

Where's Britney in the line-up?! Well, as of now, they're denying her being a part of it. Which is odd, because I feel like Britney IS TRL.

Which brings me to my next set of facts. The All-Time #1 List of TRL. Basically, the songs that we're at #1 for the longest, or whatever.-->

NSYNC--> (God Must Have Spent) A Little More Time On You

Britney Spears!--> Baby One More Time

Backstreet Boys--> Drowning

Justin Timberlake--> Cry Me A River

Good Charlotte--> The Anthem

Usher--> Yeah

Kelly Clarkson--> Behind These Hazel Eyes

Christina Aguilera--> Aint No Other Man

Rihanna--> Umbrella

Again, I have always said that the pop era is what ruled TRL or whatever, and this list pretty much proves it. We have the top 2 boy bands, and the top 2 pop princesses. Then Kelly was the beginning of the Idol generation(s). Usher is the man. Rihanna represents the newer generation of "pop." And Good Charlotte represents the "rockers." This list is everything I would have expected it to be when it comes to WHO. The songs surprise me a LITTLE bit... Besides Umbrella.

Ohh TRL. How will teenagers ever know which music is the best, now?!
