‘The Voice’ Contestant Kim Cherry Receives A Surprise From TLC

The Voice

Season 11 of NBC’s music competition show ‘The Voice‘ blessed us with some outstanding talent this year. One who stands out for us is Kim Cherry!

Fans will recall the moment Kim exploded into the singing competition with her authentic audition, a cover of TLC‘s monster hit, “No Scrubs”.

“Your voice owned it!”, John Legend said at the audition. “You were the T, the L and the C!”.

Kim went on to impress the judges further, when she included an unexpected rendition of Left Eye‘s classic rap verse in the song, which won Kelly Clarkson over as she turned her chair around to claim the talented performer!

Fast foward two months later, and Kim is still holding up strong in the competition, making it to the Top 8. To offer her some love and moral support, T-Boz and Chilli surprised her with some personal video messages!

“We are rooting for you, girl!”, T-Boz exclaims. Chilli went on to say, “You are already a superstar, and I am so proud of you. And I am going to keep watching”.

T-Boz continued, “We hope you make it to the finale. Good luck!”

This was just the boost Kim needed to lift her morale, after feeling emotional following the first anniversary of her mother’s passing.

T-Boz and Chilli helped lift her spirits up so she can do her best in the competition!

Kim went on to do an electrifying performance of Janet Jackson‘s classic 1997 hit, “Together Again”. Be sure to support Kim on the show!

T-Boz as Sheila Watkins Quits Job After Kissing Mayor Carver

Things got a little heated this week on the hit, long-running NBC soap, Days of our Lives!

Whilst digging the dirt on Mayor Abe Carver‘s opponent, Jack Deveraux, Sheila Watkins makes light of the fact she almost kissed her boss.

With Abe not completely dismissing the idea, Sheila leaned in and gave Abe a quick kiss — just to reassure herself that there was absolutely no chemistry between them!

“You’re not my type and you’re old enough to be my Dad!”, Sheila jokes. “You dress like him, too.”

Just as they agree to pretend the kiss never happened, Abe’s girlfriend, Valerie Grant, returns on the scene to surprise him with her support.

Unfortunately for the two, they were being watched by Jack, and he used this friendly encounter against Abe to smear his campaign to maintain his position.

Abe yells that Jack’s allegations are baseless. He’s not having an affair with Sheila. Val defends Abe and Jack grins as he reveals the photo of Sheila kissing Abe.

Everyone gasps. Sheila calls it a fake but they go on about how dishonorable Abe is. Abe reluctantly admits the photo is real and Sheila tells Val she can explain it. Val takes off as the press hounds Abe.

He races after her while Sheila says there’s nothing between them and takes the blame for initiating the kiss.

Val and Abe have a heart-to-heart in the park. Abe explains and apologizes. She accepts but they both agree to part ways, and kiss each other goodbye.

Sheila appears just as Val leaves, and decides that she too will be leaving Salem, and quits her job as his assistant to help save his reputation and mayoral position.

Abe pleads with her to stay — he needs her input to reach his full potential. But Sheila has made up her mind. She thanks him for all he has done for her and leaves town.

This is currently Tionne’s final scene for the show, as we reported last week. I doubt this will be the last we see of the feisty Sheila Watkins. Stay tuned!

Should Sheila to return to DAYS in the future?

TLC’s Chilli and Weezer Don’t Want No Scrubs: Live at Coachella 2019

The wishes of the C of TLC have finally come true, in the form of a live collaboration!

Back in January, rock band Weezer dropped a teaser from their latest album of covers, ‘The Teal Album‘. On the project they decided to cover the TLC classic ‘No Scrubs‘ — and Chilli approved!

So much so, the gorgeous TLC member let it be known that she would like to perform the song with them one day!

Fast forward to April 13th and her hopes have now come to fruition. Weezer invited Chilli to join them live on stage during their set at the Coachella festival in Indio, California!

Chilli surprised fans when she performed the iconic ‘Fanmail‘ lead single effortlessly along with Weezer front man Rivers Cuomo, giving the song a new lease of life to an alternative audience.

Much like the famous introductions Chilli gives to the audience at TLC shows, educating young girls to avoid those scrubs when they start to drive, Rivers replicates the same sentiments during his anti-scrub speech. Our girls have taught him well.

Keeping in with the humor, he starts the song solo, acting surprised to hear a familiar female voice interject his vocals, whilst maintaining the suspense of Chilli’s guest feature.

The performance was a hit with the crowd, and Chilli later took to social media to thank the guys and hinted that they may be in attendance on the upcoming TLC summer tour!

In addition to ‘Scrubs’, Weezer also performed a barbershop quartet version of their own song, “Beverly Hills”, as well as fan favorites “Buddy Holly”, “Hash Pipe”, “El Scorcho”, and “Island in the Sun”.

Most diehard TLC fans will recall Weezer being one of TLC’s biggest competitions at the 1995 MTV Video Music Awards, where both groups were nominated for countless awards.

It’s a pleasure to see them working together. Let’s hope more connections and collabs will be formed with more of their peers from the 90’s and today!

Check out their epic performance below and let us know your thoughts!
