Forget Honeymoon Avenue, Times Square is where we found Ariana Grande last week. In a one night only event, Ariana brought back an old MTV staple, TRL, or as we called it TAL, Total Ariana Live. With Ariana in the house, you better believe that the pandemonium in Times Square was nothing short of what Carson Daly and Lala Vasquez faced during their days of interviewing celebrity guests.
Ariana started the day off meeting fans and taking selfies in Times Square before the live taping. The thirty minute special, hosted by Sway Calloway, saw Ariana perform her hit song “Problem,” debut her new single “Break Free,” and we can’t forget about that surprise announcement! Ariana revealed that she’ll be a performer at the VMAs this year.
“It’s a huge honor to be able to bring back a show like TRL, I used to love watching it growing up.” Ariana said.
For those of you who may not remember, TRL was was a television series on MTV that featured popular music videos. TRL played the top ten most requested videos of the day, as requested by viewers who voted online for their favorite video. If you missed Total Ariana Live you can totally relive the night in GIFs.
