At the 38th annual Grammy Awards in 1996, TLC (Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas) won best R&B performance by a duo or group with vocal for “Creep” and best R&B album for CrazySexyCool — and also disclosed its bankruptcy: “We are broke as broke can be,” said Thomas after the ceremony.
