Alexa Chung

Over in the U.K., model Alexa Chung was holding it down as the co-host in the final year of Popworld, a British music-related variety show similar to TRL. Although her stint was brief, it was good enough to land her a solo gig hosting her own show on MTV titled It’s On With Alexa Chung. The show was popular for integrating the digital world of social media into the mix, offering fans the opportunity to ask questions to celebrities straight from their Twitter handles, and sourcing content like song lyrics directly from Facebook profiles. It may seem like the norm now, but that’s only because shows like It’s On helped introduce the two mediums together. Although it was a brief blip in MTV history, we still appreciated the British invasion while it lasted.
