Not only is TLC making a comeback on the stage this summer at Mixtape Festival, but also on the small screen later this year.

But before then, VH1 has released the first photo from Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story. And the three actresses who portray the hit-making trio — (from left to right) Drew Sidora as Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, Lil’ Mama as Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, and Keke Palmer as Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas — look exactly like the real deal.

The TV movie, which began filming in TLC’s native Atlanta in March, is being executive produced by the two surviving members of the group, T-Boz and Chilli.

Following the Mixtape Festival in July, the two will be hitting the road … and Left Eye will be a big part of their show. The rapper, who died in a car accident in 2002, will be digitally projected on a big screen during TLC performances.
