If we didn't know any better, we'd say this was taken last night at the AMAs.

If we didn't know any better, we'd say this was taken last night at the AMAs.

THE AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS EDITION

AMAs: The American Music Awards continually choose to feature music performances galore over broadcasting all awards.  Winners not given air time last night: Jordin Sparks, Linkin Park, Carrie Underwood, Enrique Iglesias, and more.

Christina Aguilera: Seven-song medley started the show.  Seemed original until NKOTB, Natasha Bedingfield and the Pussycat Dolls did medleys as well.  We wish she did more singing, though, and less grunting.

Jimmy Kimmel: Made great jokes about the Taylor Swift-Joe Jonas and Miley Cyrus-Nick Jonas break-ups, all of whom were awkwardly in attendance.

Mariah Carey: Was it really necessary to have an appearance on stage by hubby Nick Cannon during her performance?  We think not.

Beyonce: Isn’t it weird that she sings about single ladies when she isn’t one anymore?  And between SNL and TRL, this performance is getting quite old already.

Chris Brown: Artist of the Year.  According to this award show, at least.

Rihanna: If she kept having to hold the bottom of her dress down, maybe she should’ve realized it was too short.

Kanye: Didn’t his face seem a little puffy last night as he made rambling speeches about returning to the 60s and giving his award to Lil’ Wayne?

Queen Latifah: Performed with Alicia Keys (and some opera singer), making memorable references to Obama and Jennifer Hudson’s slain family members.

SIZZLED OUT: Jennifer Aniston

STILL SIZZLING: A recently single Desperate Housewife has been spotted locking lips with Heather Locklear’s ex.  Yet another strange combination. (And the answer is NOT Richie Sambora!)

AFTER 10 YEARS AND A 3-HOUR FINALE, TOTAL REQUEST LIVE IS OFFICIALLY OFF THE AIR.

The last TRL, renamed Total Finale Live for this special event, was a jam-packed celebration of the show that defined our childhood afternoons.

SOME THOUGHTS

Carson Daly returned to emcee the event with current host Damien Fahey.

The show actually started with a performance by Beyonce.

Weird that it was held on a Sunday night, and not a weekday, like the normal TRL.

Appearances from celebs ran the gamut from Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Jonathan Davis, Snoop Dogg and…Samuel L. Jackson?!

First on-air (and live!) interview with Travis Barker post-plane crash.  Very subdued, not that we blame him.

Diddy pretended to (or perhaps really??) choke up when he was honored for making the most appearances on TRL.

Awkward moment: Carson referring to ex Jennifer Love Hewitt.

Co-hosted by all the former VJs, including three of our faves: Hilarie Burton (yay One Tree Hill!), Dave Holmes and Jesse Camp, from the very first I Wanna Be a VJ contest.

Fall Out Boy performed…minus Pete Wentz.  He later called into the show and said he was in California prepping for imminent fatherhood.  Will it really be that soon?!

Soundbyte: “I bought Twilight on bootleg and watched it like 72 times”–Pete Wentz.  Setting a great example, as always.

Did Hilary Duff run into ex Joel Madden?

Kid Rock insisted on smoking a cigar on stage.  And here we thought it was illegal to smoke in New York venues…

Justin Timberlake and JC Chasez represented NSYNC but it would’ve been cool if the whole band returned AND performed.

X-Tina, Chris Brown, Ben Stiller and others spoke via satellite.

Disappointing moment: Eminem, on the phone, refuses to give any details about his upcoming album, Relapse.

Quintessential window references and segments with the Times Square crowd.

KoRn was hailed as the first rock band of TRL; brought back memories of the KoRn (number 3) spot.

A short segment looked back at the top MTV News moments, giving due respect to 9/11.  Wish they also mentioned Aaliyah.

Many shameless plugs: Bolt, Diddy’s new cologne (who was made fun of for hyping the most stuff over the years), Last Call, FNMTV and more.

East Coast and West Coast rap/hip-hop came together in medley featuring Nelly, Snoop and Ludacris.

Unnecessary moment: knocking LFO.

Soundbyte: “One of the finer moments of my life”–JT recalling when Halle Berry surprised him on a TRL ep.

Backstreet Boys given lots of praise, though we wish former member Kevin returned for the performance.

Soundbyte: “They outlived all the other boy bands and they outlived TRL“–Carson on BSB.

Noticeably absent: 98 Degrees, Jessica Simpson, Destiny’s Child, Mandy Moore, Jay-Z, Avril, Sum-41, Linkin Park and others.

Are all the TRL employees without jobs now?  After all, MTV (and parent Viacom) are doing lay-offs…

Soundbyte: Britney is “the queen of TRL“–Carson on Brit Brit who “couldn’t be here.”

Loved that some of our favorite moments were re-aired: the debut party for BSB’s Millenium album, Mariah and her ice cream truck, countless others.

Speaking of counting, the TRL finale wouldn’t be complete without a final countdown. The Top 10 videos from TRL history, as decided by the producers: Hey-Ya (Outkast), What’s My Age Again (Blink-182), Yeah (Ludacris, Usher, et. al.), Crazy in Love (Beyonce), Bawitdaba (Kid Rock), Dirrty (Christina Aguilera), Bye Bye Bye (NSYNC), I Want It That Way (BSB), The Real Slim Shady (Eminem), and, at number one, Baby One More Time (Britney).

Soundbyte: “Goodnight from New York and goodnight TRL“–Carson.

TEAR!

Tiffani "I've dropped the Amber" Thiessen"

Tiffani "I've dropped the Amber" Thiessen

Oprah: Reports are saying she won’t stick with her talk show after 2011 but no worries, she won’t be going far.  Just switching focus over to OWN–the Oprah Winfrey Network.  World domination is next.

Palin: Before Oprah does her OWN thing (get it?!), she’ll make good on that promise to have Sarah Palin on  her show.  Will Palin take her up on the offer?  We vote for hibernation instead.

Kanye: Musical influences?  The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Johnny Cash and Broadway.  Or so he says.

SNL: Will Joe Biden be the next politician to poke fun at himself? That’s what the execs are hoping for but we’re not too excited.  Something about old white guys (see: John McCain) just isn’t funny.

The CW: The promised series about Robin (Batman’s sidekick, duh!) won’t be developed after higher ups at Warner Brothers–and Dark Knight visionary Christopher Nolan?–decided now isn’t the ideal time.  Guess the tube has all the superheroes it can handle.

Beyonce: Thinks there is in fact room for one more superhero: Wonder Woman.  “It’d be a dream come true to be that character,” she says.  “It sure would be handy to have that lasso.”  Awkward.

Fox: The mid-season schedule will shake things up all around.  Most disappointing: Prison Break will simply “return at a later date.”  What kind of B.S. spin is that?

Betty Boop: It doesn’t get much more random than this: the animated icon is getting her own Broadway show.  No word yet on whether this will be geared towards kiddies or perverts.

Tiffani Thiessen: Coming back to TV–but not on 90210 (which is probably a good thing!)  Instead she’s playing somebody’s wife on a new USA show.  We’ll take whatever TAT we can get.

Christina Aguilera: A day after a certain boy band talked rivals, the girls are doing it, too.  X-Tina says she and Brit Brit were never competing against each other.  After all, they used to hold hands!

SIZZLED OUT: Hugh Hefner

STILL SIZZLING: Which late-night comic had a guest stand him up this week for the first time in 15 years?
