Congratulations are in order for Lil’ Mama, Keke Palmer, and Drew Sidora for their portrayal of popular R&B girl group, TLC, and their rise to fame in the 90’s.
The ladies not only put on a phenomenal performance in the ‘Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story’ movie biopic, the show was the highest rated telecast for VH1 in five years. In fact it garnered 4.5 million overall viewers during its premiere Monday night.
The show reeled in 2.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic and a 5.5 rating in women between the ages 18-34. The biopic is now the No. 1 original cable movie, this year, in adults and women between the ages of 18-49. It is also VH1′s highest-rated original movie ever.
The film was also the most tweeted about program, during its premiere, garnering 1.92 million tweets — four times greater than that of Monday Night Football.
Let’s send out a big congrats to Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, the remaining two members of the group, to tell their story.
Well done ladies!
RIP Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes.
