O'So Krispie Is Chosen as the Girl in "R U the Girl with T-Boz & Chilli"

[via press release from UPN]


O'so krispie, a 20-year-old choreographer from Atlanta, was chosen as the winner in the live finale of UPN's dramality series R U THE GIRL WITH T-BOZ & CHILLI. The two remaining performers had their final challenge in Atlanta, where they were asked to write and record a rap for TLC's new single "I Bet," as well as learn a dance routine to be performed with the girls. While both performers impressed T-Boz & Chilli, O'so krispie's energy and overall improvement throughout the competition sealed the deal and the girls picked her.

In last night's finale, TLC's T-Boz & Chilli expressed that Mirrah and O'so krispie both possessed the energy and the skills they were looking for which was why they were the last two standing. They gave each finalist one last time to share why they deserved to be the girl. Mirrah and O'so krispie each gave heartfelt responses expressing their connection with TLC and the legacy they were lucky enough to share.

Then, the pop superstars left the stage and came out to a roaring crowd as they paid their respects to their late sister "Left Eye" and treated the fans to an incredible performance of the group's greatest hits from "Ain't Too Proud To Beg" to "No Scrubs."

After the medley, tension was building as T-Boz & Chilli deliberated backstage for the last time. They then joined the two finalists onstage to make their decision. After a very emotional journey, they found they were attached to both girls. But, only one could win. The anticipation was great as T-Boz said, "And the girl is� O'So krispie." The crowd erupted into cheers and O'so's family came up on stage to join in the celebration.

To close the show, T-Boz and Chilli entertained the audience with the first live performance of TLC's new single "I Bet," featuring their winner O'so krispie.

Four-time Grammy Award-winning TLC was formed in Atlanta in 1991. They are the biggest-selling female group of all time, riding a blend of pop, hip-hop and urban soul to superstardom during the '90s with nine Top-10 singles on the Billboard Top 100, five of which hit number one, and two number-one albums on the Billboard 200. With more than 33 million albums sold worldwide, TLC won numerous awards and has a long list of mega hits, including "Waterfalls," "Creep" and "No Scrubs." When TLC was at its peak, tragedy struck when the life of member Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes was unexpectedly cut short. Now, T-Boz & Chilli are ready for a new beginning for themselves and their fans.

Blending comedy and reality, singing sensations T-Boz & Chilli of TLC set out on a journey filled with emotion, comedy, surprises and special guests to look for that one lucky and talented girl who just might be the perfect fit. For nine weeks, the girls worked closely with the diverse group of aspiring female performers to find the one with the right chemistry who could join them on their next great escapade, which culminated in a concert performance during a live finale on UPN.

R U THE GIRL WITH T-BOZ & CHILLI is produced by The Jay and Tony Show in association with Fox Television Studios. The executive producers are Jay Blumenfield & Anthony Marsh, Chilli & Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins. Bill Diggins and Laurie Girion ("Last Comic Standing") are co-executive producers.
