Migos Will Be First Guests on MTV’s ‘TRL’ Reboot
It's almost impossible not to get a little nostalgic when thinking about TRL, but the MTV reboot's choice to book Migos as the first guest is certainly helping bring the beloved program up to date in 2017.
According to Variety, Migos have been tapped to perform on the inaugural episode of the program's new era along with Ed Sheeran. The first episode will broadcast from MTV's signature Times Square studio on Oct. 2.
TRL, which initially aired from 1998 until 2008, played host to countless unforgettable hip-hop moments, such as Nas premiering his controversial "Hate Me Now" video in 1999, T.I. performing his hit single "Bring Em Out" alongside OutKast's Big Boi in 2005, Eminem getting his own episode to promote the Marshall Mathers LP in 2000, the quirky snapshots from rappers posing in the iconic photo booth and more.
The show's highly anticipated reboot has recruited rapper and actor D.C. Young Fly to host, with the support of a crew made up of social media influencers and co-hosts like Eva Gutowski, Gabbie Hanna, Gigi Gorgeous, Amy Pham, Erik Zachary, Lawrence Jackson and Tamara Dhia, and correspondent Liza Koshy.
Most recently, Migos' Quavo graced the stage at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas, surprising fans as part of DJ Khaled's star-studded set alongside Chance the Rapper, French Montana, Travis Scott and more. Considering the trio is known for their high-energy performances, TRL should prove to be no different.
