Must See: The Saturdays Tribute Destiny’s Child & TLC On ‘BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge’

Published: Tuesday 29th Oct 2013 by Sam

As girl groups go, they don’t get much bigger than Destiny’s Child and TLC.

Indeed, both acts have created success narratives that are ground-breaking, trail-blazing. Success narratives that not only serve as a definitive blueprint, but narratives that are forever etched in Pop culture history.

It’s fitting, then, that The Saturdays – the UK’s current biggest female group, also recognise this – paying homage to the girl power pioneers during a recent performance on BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge.

Led by front-woman Vanessa White, the ladies navigated through Drake’s recent hit ‘Hold On, We’re Going Home’ before launching into a mash-up of TLC’s ‘No Scrubs’ and DC’s ‘Survivor’.

Find out how they fared after the jump…


Yes, yes, and yes!

It goes without saying that it wouldn’t be a Saturdays performance without questionable solos and non-existent harmonies. However, the tribute mix of songs was stellar, as was lead Vanessa’s vocals – which, prior to now, haven’t been as dependable as they once were. She, along with the ever-on-point Rochelle, delivered here – reminding that, for all the group’s cheese, there is amazing talent embedded in the quintet.

The Saturdays’ latest album ‘Living For The Weekend’ is available in stores now.

    I was not that impressed as the songs lacked any sass or attitude in the vocals. Vanessa and Rochelle did their thang but it would’ve been more appreciated as a duo

    Errm Una starting Scrubs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Anyway Vanessa was giving it.
    Rochelle was ok

    What was really telling was how the Saturdays sound exactly the same without Frankie even being present..

    Could not say the same if Ness & Roch were absent.

    WTF. These basic ho’s butchered “No Scrubs.” You have to ACTUALLY have a personality and experience to sing a song like that.
