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.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
