TLC’s comeback tour continues. Following their VH1 movie CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story and new album 20, T-Boz and Chilli will cap off the year with a performance at the 2013 American Music Awards.

The duo will make their return to the AMA stage with a special unannounced guest when the shows airs live from the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE on Sunday, Nov. 24, at 8 p.m. on ABC.

Jennifer Lopez has also been added to the list of performers. The pop diva will perform a tribute to music legend Celia Cruz, while Katy Perry will open this year’s show with her second PRISM single “Unconditionally.”

The ladies join previously announced performers Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Miley Cyrus, Kendrick Lamar, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Ke$ha, Imagine Dragons, One Direction, and this year’s host, Pitbull.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis lead with six nominations, followed by Justin Timberlake and Taylor Swift with five nods a piece.

For the seventh year in a row, winners will be determined by online voting.

    I really hope this surprise guest” is Lil Mama. She is the “L” in TLC that would seamlessly make a pretty nice addition…even her rapping style and dancing matches!

    This would be the best case scenario for a TLC performance, present and going forward.

    I hope it’s not lil mama, no shade to her, but if it is her, it looks like they’re replacing lisa

    All i’m here for is a performance by Eminem & Rihanna…

    No basic Zone…. #NOBASICS

    Glad they added some more people of color to the list. Besides Kendrick and Pitbull, this was a Caucasian pop fest and still is (not that that’s anything new for the AMAs). I really hope the “special guest” isn’t Lil Mama, there’s nothing special about her. I heard they were working on some new music with Drake and J. Cole, if it’s one of them, then that would be dope. Also, if Eminem, Kanye, or Jay-Z were to be added, that would be dope.


  6. Bring Lil Mama

    I hope they bring Lil Mama.

    Is J. Cole performing? I’d really love to see them do “Crooked Smile” together … for only the second time.

    I hope it’s lil Mama because if it is I swear I would be soo exciting and I also hope that Lil Mama be on there New Album too that would soo great and beautiful god bless this group for having someone that can intimidate left eye and even looks like her a little bit you know it’s amazing and so great so I really hope that it’s Lil Mama

    I kinda want it to be Lil Mama, but then again I kinda don’t. Either way I’m excited to see TLC.

    It will probably be Lisa ‘Left-Eye’ Lopez as a Hologram.

    it’s good to see them getting back into music & the VH1 movie gave them a boost. nothing can capture their glory days of the past, i miss them as a group. the amas may be ok this year, excited as always to see justin timberlake. i hope he debuts not a bad thing. also can’t wait to see what gaga & lamar do. i’m a new fan of georgia florida line & imagine dragons but they’re dope. i’m sure miley will be thirsty for attention as usual.
