Everything You Wanted To Know About 'Total Finale Live' But Were Too Lazy To Look Up

We’re just bittersweet DAYS from the real-deal last-ever episode of TRL -- this Sunday, November 16 at 8pm ET. So, here’s everything you need to know about who’s performing and appearing on the star-studded two-hour boo-hoo fest that’ll close the door on TRL forever-ever.


Old enough to remember Carson Daly? (Come on. You’re not THAT young!) Good. because the pioneering TRL host will be back in the house to co-host the night's farewell festivities, along with Damien Fahey. And a parade of co-hosts and VJs, including Lyndsey Rodrigues, Vanessa Minnillo, Dave Holmes, Jesse Camp, Hilarie Burton (Peyton!!), Susie Castillo, La La Vasquez and Quddus (soooo hot! – ed.) will be stopping by to reflect, reminisce, and see how their old dressing rooms held up.


Beyonce/ Sasha FIERCE will be performing live, which is simply unMISSABLE, speaking of which, so is the Backstreet Boys' performance (minus Kevin –- frowny face! It's been too long guys, and you've so shown me the meaning of being lonely!) Anyway, ALSO Ludacris, Snoop Dogg and Nelly will be teaming up for a one-night-only three-way performance, not to be outdone by the monied, the powerful 50 Cent’s live performance or Fall Out Boy’s in-studio performance.


Diddy -- the unofficial godfather of TRL -- will make his 37th (and final!!) TRL appearance. A glittering Mariah Carey will be there too, as well Justin Timberlake AND JC Chasez, which is like two-fifths of *NSYNC! Country-pop princess Taylor Swift, the always-glam Hilary Duff, Good Charlotte's Benji and Joel Madden (cordially, I’m sure), Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst, and Korn's Jonathan Davis will all be in the soon-to-be-shuttered TRL studio to give the show the send off it deserves, while Christina Aguilera and Travis Barker will join the party via the magic of satellite, however that works.

+ Too depressed to remember that Total Finale Live is this Sunday, November 16 at 8pm ET? Embed this noise, AND come back heyah to the MTV Buzzworthy blog this Sunday for celebrity interviews, photos, and more behind-the-scenes access to the big TRL farewell.
