On the OWN show’s season finale, the singers behind one of the biggest ruses in music history speak out
Music duo Milli Vanilli fooled everyone for a time. And Friday’s season finale of “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” revisits the people behind the scam that went down more than two decades ago.
The series interviews the singers behind Rob Pilatus and Fab Morvan, the public face of Milli Vanilli, to dissect how the façade was pulled off and how it all came apart.
In TheWrap‘s exclusive preview from Friday’s episode, several of the singers behind the duo discuss how Milli Vanilli’s 1990 Grammy was the beginning of the end for the charade.
One backup singer, Linda Rocco, said, “I was scared that now it’s so huge in the states with the Grammy that this thing is going to be found out, because Rob and Fab are doing interviews with this heavy accent. And I said to my twin sister, Jodie, ‘They’re going to start looking a lot closer to this group now.’ And that’s exactly what happened.”
Watch the preview above.
“Oprah: Where Are They Now” airs Friday at 9 p.m. on OWN.
