What Surprises Can We Expect From TLC at AMAs?

November 22, 2013 3:30 PM ET

Minutes after TLC finished their first round of rehearsals for the American Music Awards Thursday at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, Yahoo Music snagged them for an exclusive interview.

As usual, T-Boz and Chilli were full of energy (and offered, as a bonus, the best Yahoo yodel ever). They said their show at Sunday's event would include new dances and a special, surprise guest. Though they could not reveal the name of the artist (and we were sworn to secrecy), they did offer a couple clues. Watch the interview to see if you can figure out the identity of the mystery person.

The artists celebrating the 20th of their debut album, "Ooooooohhh… On The TLC Tip," share fond memories about attending their first AMAs in 1993 and losing the favorite r&b/hip-hop artist category to an MC who had a thing for women with big butts. T-Boz discusses the artists she and her 13-year-old daughter, Chase, want to see hit the stage this year.

T-Boz and Chilli also respond to the positive and negative feedback they have received about their top-rated VH1 movie, "CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story."

Watch the interview above.

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
