Them TLC girls still got it! After eleven years of not seeing too much of T-Boz and Chilli, the now duo girl group is slowly making their comeback.
This past weekend, MTV celebrated the legacy of TLC at the international Video Music Awards held in Japan by awarding them with the Legend Award, which has only been given to Michael Jackson in the past. Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozanda “Chilli” Thomas accepted the award sans Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, who passed in a tragic car accident in Honduras, back in 2002. Although Left Eye was not in attendance, her family was there in support.
“We’d just like to thank all of our fans and anybody who’s had a hand in our career ,” said T-Boz. “We’ve had 20 years and we’re still going and we’re so blessed to be here and get this award.”
“Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes is our sister. She lives on forever in this group, TLC,” said Chilli. “I want to give a shout-out to her family that came here to support us. I know she’s smiling right now. I know she has a hand in us continuing on and she’s missed, but she’s never forgotten.”
In addition to receiving their honorary award, the two also performed a medley of their hits, including “Silly Ho,” “Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg,” “What About Your Friends,” “Baby-Baby-Baby,” “Diggin’ on You,” “Unpretty,” “No Scrubs,” and “Waterfalls.”
TLC will make their U.S. debut at The Mixtape Festival in Hershey, PA on July 27. They are also currently working on a new album as well as releasing their made-for-TV-movie, “CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story” slated to air on VH1 later this year in November.
