It was one of the most beloved shows on MTV and now “Total Request Live” is getting revived thanks to pop princess Ariana Grande.

On July 2nd at 7pm the “Almost is Never Enough” babe will team with Sway Calloway for the one-off broadcast, including a big announcement and stripped down versions of “Problem” and “Break Free.”

Ms. Grande gushed, “It’s a huge honor to be able to bring back a show like ‘TRL,’ I used to love watching it growing up. Can’t wait to celebrate with my loves in Times Square. Might have some surprises too…”

And Republic Records honcho Charlie Walk declared, “Only one artist has the power to turn the lights back on at 1515 Broadway in the iconic ‘TRL’ studios, and that’s Ariana Grande. The transformation to ‘Total Ariana Live’ represents her one-of-a-kind star power combined with MTV’s immense multimedia platform, setting the stage for the ultimate global partnership.”
