Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas and Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins have a lot to celebrate. The surviving members of the 90s chart-topping group TLC have a greatest hits album “20” out this week and a new movie they’re ready to share with their fans. The Grammy winning duo who serve as executive producers for the VH1 film “CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story” appeared on the red carpet in New York for the biopic and stopped by “Good Morning America” with members of the cast to chat it up with host Robin Roberts earlier this week.

Watkins was asked to describe what this moment feels like for them.
“It means so much. It’s surreal. I mean we could be like in the kitchen cooking and we see the commercial and we stop and go that’s us. Oh my god, like it never happened for us. So it’s just like a dream come true.”

Thomas spoke on their emotional reaction to seeing Lil’ Mama who plays late group member Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes in the film.
“First of all when we saw her audition tape, it was like, that's it. She's the one. You know? And when she gets in character, with the dark contacts, her eyes are hazel. We were talking to her, and sometimes it was like -- it was strange for us sometimes, freaked us out a little bit."
