After Carson made his exit from TRL, Quddus was one of the special few who filled his shoes as an on-air VJ for the popular program. The coolest thing about Quddus being on the show was that he never tried to follow in Carson’s legacy, instead bringing on a fresh presence that helped usher in a different era of TRL. He became such a popular face on the show that pop stars Usher and Britney Spears both asked him to host their respective Showtime concert specials. His time as a VJ on TRL also garnered him huge media buzz, including a Favorite TV Personality award at the 2003 Teen Choice Awards and placing on TV Guide’s Hottest New Stars of 2005 list.
