TLC Biopic Cast Will Not Sing Any Songs; They’ll Lip-Sync
The group members decided to go with the original music and ask every actress to basically stay in her own lane.
Keke Palmer was disappointment with that element of the assignment at first, but also understood the choice.
“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,” she said. “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.”
Also, as we reported, the young singer/actress fell victim to social media and its participants’ criticism for the casting choice, saying she isn’t a good fit to play the part of Chilli. Drew Sidora and Lil’ Mama are playing Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and the late Lisa “Left-Eye” Lopes.
