It might be Ariana Grande’s birthday (happy 21er, girl!) but she’s giving us all a gift. The Disney princess and MTV have joined forces and they’re bringing back TRL! We repeat: MTV is bringing back TRL. This is not a drill.
Ariana will be filling Carson Daly’s platforms in the role of lead VJ. What’s the catch? It’s only coming back for one day.
Total Request Live, that music-centric show that was the highlight of so many of our afternoons growing up, will be resurrected for a single, one-night-only special called — wait for it — Total Ariana Live. Anybody got a problem with that?
Helping the headliner captain the ship will be Sway Calloway, our favorite MTV News host (sorry not sorry, all you other people who popped up on our TV screens at inconvenient times). Sway will host the 30-minute special which, our pals at Clevver News tell us, will feature the premiere of Ariana’s new single with Zedd, “Break Free,” among other exciting announcements from Ms. Grande herself.
Get more details in the video above and then head below to tell us if you’ll tune in for TAL when it premieres in Wednesday, July 2, at 7 p.m. on MTV.
