Not saying this because I'm a fan, but I think it's HORRIBLE that the biggest selling female group in the US has NEVER performed at Essence Music Festival...Like I don't even think they've been asked.

In 2011 I remember starting a FB campaign/ petition to get them there that year. Chilli was even tweeting about the campaign, but still nothing.

It's also pretty sad they've never been on the cover of the magazine?

What's up with the hate?

They'd never go there. That crowd and trying to lip sync? Nah. Absolutely not.

Neither lip entire performances. From the clips I saw of Janet there, she wasn't flat out lipping. And Beyonce did not. TLC has always been bad at irm

TLC were scheduled to Perform at Essence back in 96. Tionne was either sick or it was when all the drama was going on with them not making money after coming off the their biggest selling album (I can't recall). Tionne tweeted once that WE (the fans need to tell Essence to request them). That being said, I think it's more up to TLC's business practices (or oftentimes lack their of) because Essence is a platform that they SHOULD be featured on.

You're exactly right. If Xscape can get a spot for reuniting w/o the promise of new music, than TLC should be trying to get a spot as well to help promote the album.
