Everyone loves a bit of nostalgia, but TLC's stint on the American Music Award stage actually left me feeling a little depressed- oppose to cheerily reminiscent of days gone by.
Singing their smash hit Waterfalls, original members T-Boz and Chilli lip-synced their way through the whole thing, all while engaged in some sloppy and tired choreography. Ironically, the only live vocals to be found were done so by their "special guest" Lil Mama- who played deceased third member, Left Eye, in the recently released biopic, Crazy Sexy Cool: The TLC Story- and even she wasn't much good, missing bars and losing breath as she shouted her way through the performance. On the plus side, at least she offered a small reminder of the energy and exhuberance the group used to come with when they hit the stage.
Initially I was hoping for a medley of TLC's biggest hits, but after watching this, I'm glad they decided to stick to the one song...
