TLC and Missy Elliott know how to bring down the house! T-Boz and Chilli teamed up with Missy Elliott on ‘Taraji’s White Hot Holidays’ for one amazing holiday-themed performance. Missy rapping about Santa was the best thing we’ve ever seen!
Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, 46, and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, 45, of TLC start out the performance with their cover of “Sleigh Ride.” The girls get the crowd up and moving right along with their holiday song. Talk about getting in the Christmas spirit! They give the floor to Missy Elliott, 45, in the middle of song, and she breaks out a verse that’s all about Santa. Some of the lyrics include “cause Santa’s tryna mack in his Cadillac,” and “he’s slippin’ and slidin’ in his own sleigh ride.” Only Missy could make a holiday rap sound so legit.
T-Boz and Chilli looked great in their black, bondage-inspired outfits. Missy rocked a huge leather pullover and a bright purple lip. The ladies brought the heat with their sexy dance moves, shortly before the female MC hit the stage with her bedazzled microphone. Snoop Dogg led the star-studded performance, cruising around in a fully decked out sleigh!
Taraji’s White Hot Holidays is the perfect end to a great year for Missy. Earlier in 2016, Missy released a new song called “Pep Rally” and teamed up with A$AP Ferg on “Strive.” She also appeared in Marc Jacobs’ fall fashion campaign.
In addition to Missy and TLC, Empire star Jussie Smollett, Taye Diggs, Run-DMC’s Darryl McDaniels, Ne-Yo, Tyrese Gibson, Andra Day, Candice Boyd and October London also performed. Common, Pharrell, and Tyler Perry made appearances. Taraji hosted the show solo this year after co-hosting with Empire co-star Terrence Howard in 2015. Taraji did an amazing job, and so did everyone else!
