It was Lil Mama and not a hologram at Sunday night’s American Music Awards. TLC weren’t nominated for any statues on the awards night, but they took to the stage nonetheless in celebration of their recent comeback, complete with a 20th anniversary greatest hits LP and controversial VH1 TLC biopic, which starred Lil Mama as lost member Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes.
Some were hoping for a Left Eye hologram during TLC’s turn on stage, but Lil Mama reprised her role as the group’s rap star during their “Waterfalls” performance. At the end, a giant image of Left Eye was projected on a screen behind the three, who nailed their dance moves. Maybe Lil Mama went a little rogue with her dance moves at parts, and probably could have used a bit more time at rehearsal. But Lisa Lopes would have been proud. Maybe.
