As Seen on TV: TLC on "Showtime at the Apollo"

The raw, early 90sness of this clip is fantastic. "Showtime at the Apollo" was still on the air and was a reliable source for dope performances like this one. You've got pre-glam TLC in their condom-adorned, baggy-clothed glory. Le sigh. What early 90s teenage girl didn't want to exude some of the crazysexycoolness of  T-Boz, Chilli and Left Eye? When my favorite member, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, died tragically on April 25th 2002, she took the 90s answer to The Supremes with her. Yeah, I said it! The Supremes!
