Weezer Surprises With TLC’s Chilli, Tears For Fears During Coachella Set

Weezer made a triumphant return to Coachella after a 14-year absence, and surprised the crowd with a few special guests.

First up was TLC’s Chilli (real name: Rozonda Thomas), who lent her unmistakable vocals to Weezer’s cover of “No Scrubs”.
