"I'm not going to be doing any singing. In the beginning I was sad about that. But at the same time I can also understand, because you want to hear the actual music. It was their choice to keep the real music. I respect that. [I'll be] learning tons of choreography. Luckily their original choreographer will be choreographing us. It's so cool."

"I'm not going to be doing any singing. In the beginning I was sad about that. But at the same time I can also understand, because you want to hear the actual music. It was their choice to keep the real music. I respect that. [I'll be] learning tons of choreography. Luckily their original choreographer will be choreographing us. It's so cool."

Keke Palmer in an interview with Essence magazine about being cast as Rozonda "ChilliThomas in VH1's in-development biopic on pop/hip hop/R&B group TLC, which will start shooting next month.

Did anyone really expect that the cast would actually sing TLC's hit songs? I didn't. 

But obviousy getting the original choreography down is crucial. There's no way around that - unless they use body doubles. 

Drew Sidora and Lil' Mama are playing Tionne "T-BozWatkins and the late Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, in a tele-pic that Charles Stone III (DrumlinePaid in FullMr. 3000) is set to direct, from a script penned by screenwriter Kate Lanier (What’s Love Got To Do With ItSet it OffBeauty Shop).

That first trailer will tell us a lot.
