Keke Palmer Was Overwhelmed When She Met TLC’s Chilli
TLC fans will get to know the band like never before with the premiere of VH1′s new movie CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story.
Keke Palmer, who plays Chilli, reveals to On Air with Ryan Seacrest that she grew up practically obsessed with the girl group and especially idolized Chilli.
So when it came time to play her, the actress was almost overwhelmed when the real Chilli taught her the iconic “No Scrubs” dance.
“We were learning choreography with TLC themselves and it was just one of those moments when you have to look around and say, ‘Oh my gosh, thank you, Lord,’” explains Keke. “But after spending a lot of time with them and being there with them, you feel like you’ve known them forever.”
To see Keke’s take on Chilli, tune in to the premiere of CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story on VH1 tonight at 9/8c.
