You’ll NEVER guess what TLC looks like now! Chilli, 51, and T-Boz, 52, are barely aging as they make rare TV appearances ahead of the national RnB Live tour in Australia

They rose to fame in the 1990s and went on to become one of the most iconic R&B groups in history.

And on Friday, Rozonda Chilli Thomas, 51, and Tionne T-Boz Watkins, 52, made a rare TV appearance on Channel Nine’s Today show.

The girl group, which seems barely a day old in these two decades, is celebrating their 30th anniversary.

“To be able to still be here selling and touring and living life the way it is, it’s a blessing,” said T-Boz.

Chilli also said she was happy to see the younger generation singing their songs at concerts.

“I really like the people who sing our songs. It touched us both in a way that is hard to explain seeing little children who were not born singing our songs,” he said.

In 2020 – nearly 18 years after losing the rapper – TLC singer Chilli shared how it was ‘never thought of’ to replace the late star in the group.

Speaking at GMB, he said: ‘We hear from so many people, in business, that it surprises us more than anything. His fans, not so much.

Never thought of replacing him, no one at TLC can be replaced. Nothing can fill those shoes.’

He went on to explain that while he and T-Boz were adamant that there would be no new members, it took some time for others to see their point of view.

Chilli added: ‘It took a while for people to get it. But through the tour it kept his memory alive, we never turned off the rap or anything.’
