Fans and Celebs Face the Music During Much's Holiday Wrap 2007



    TORONTO, Dec. 14 /CNW/ - Ho Ho Ho-ly Crap! It's a giant sleigh load of
naughty 'n' nice with all new fan fare and a reality knock-out keeping viewers
locked on MuchMusic this December. Holiday Wrap 2007 - with outrageous,
laugh-out-loud original programming and highly-anticipated specials, covering
the most buzzed-about celeb hits and misses of the year - begins December 16
on MuchMusic.
    Fans come first in three new holiday specials. Hotties Next Door reveals
Canada's Top 20 super sexy guy and girl music fans from coast to coast. Then
there's no love lost when Much responds to disgruntled sourpusses who say U
Suck! The laughs keep coming when unwitting wannabes get duped while attending
a reality show Casting Call.
    Here's one that's surely bursting with holiday spirit - Robin Black: Cage
Fighter. Canada's own glam rocker gets the guyliner punched off his face in
the fight of his life. On the cheeky side it's MuchMusic's Best Virgin Videos,
highlighting top hitmakers in a variety of 'firsts'. And five brats get an
extreme 'tude adjustment when Ozzy's next of kin puts them to the test in Jack
Osbourne: The Recruits.
    Messed Up & Memorable, MuchNews Misses, Kisses & Disses, and The
MuchMusic Viewers Poll are back to highlight the cringe-worthy and crazy of
2007.
    Fans can log onto muchmusic.com for exclusive uncut footage, outrageous
outtakes, VJ blog posts, sizzlin' videos and more!
