TLC Headline Official 61st GRAMMY Awards After-Party

After the 61st GRAMMY Awards on Sun. Feb. 10, more than 5,000 members of the music industry community will head for the Renaissance-themed official after-party celebration at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The event will be headlined by R&B greats En Vogue and TLC. The private, ticketed event’s festivities also feature jazz vocalist Kurt Elling and a set by DJ Michelle Pesce, as well as gourmet cuisine and dancing.

The ladies of GRAMMY-nominated group En Vogue stirred up the ’90s R&B scene with hits including “Hold On,” “My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It)” and “Don’t Let Go (Love),” which was nominated for Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal at the 39th GRAMMY Awards.

The women of GRAMMY-winning group TLC also made huge waves in ’90s (and early-2000s) R&B. At the 38th GRAMMY Awards, their sophomore album CrazySexyCool won Best R&B Album and its single “Creep” won Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal. At the 42nd GRAMMY Awards, the group won both categories again with their follow-up album Fanmail and its hit “No Scrubs.”

TLC & En Vogue’s first televised collaboration occurred back in 2008 at the BET Awards, where they were the special guests of Alicia Keys, who also happens to be this years GRAMMYS host.
