Many big names appeared at New York's Times Square studios to bid MTV's "Total Request Live" good bye at a show named "Total Finale Live". One of them was Beyonce Knowles who took the stage singing "If I Were a Boy", "Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)", and "Crazy in Love".
Joining Beyonce as musical guests at the event were Ludacris, Snoop Dogg, Nelly, and 50 Cent. While Ludacris preferred to collaborate with Snoop Dogg and Nelly, 50 Cent walked straight to the studio performing solo singing a group of songs from his song "In da Club" to current hit "Get Up".
Fall Out Boy also made a live appearance at the star-studded show on November 16. The band performed without their bassist Pete Wentz. A member of The Academy Is... filled in his spot in the band during the live show.
"Total Request Live" is a television series on MTV that featured celebrity interviews, musical performances, and regular music news updates. Since broadcast in 1997, the show became a popular outlet used by musicians, actors, and other celebrities to promote their newest works to fans.
