Little Mix

Little Mix Biography (BBC)

Little Mix were formed during the 2011 season of The X Factor, when aspiring solo contestants Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson and Leigh-Anne Pinnock were put together as a band at the boot camp stage. They quickly bonded, discovering a natural aptitude for close harmonies (as heard best on their hugely popular Live Lounge cover of Mumford and Sons’ I Will Wait), and went on to win the series. Now the real work could begin.

They released their debut single; a No.1 cover of Damien Rice’s Cannonball that was quickly followed to the top by the brassy Wings. During the promotion of their debut album DNA, the girls quickly established a glorious reputation for being the bratty little sisters of pop: energetic, unflappable, ruthless with interviewers and prone to oversharing.

One year later, the anthemic Change Your Life acted as a trailer for their second album Salute, a funkier affair (the single Move being a prime example). The album featured a guest appearance from Missy Elliott (How Ya Doin’?) and production work by legendary R&B songwriters Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis. It reached the top 10 in both the UK and America, which paved the way for a US tour supporting Demi Lovato. That year they also appeared at Radio 1’s Big Weekend for the first time.

Little Me was their next single, a more serious song looking back at the band’s youth and offering encouragement for anyone struggling with self-confidence. This was soon to be followed by the strident girl power anthem Salute. Little Mix were then selected to perform 2014’s Sport Relief song, and chose a barnstorming cover of the Cameo funk hit Word Up.

In 2015, the girls released Black Magic - the first single from their third album, Get Weird, and their biggest worldwide hit since Wings - and collaborated on the song Pretty Girls, which was released as a single by Britney Spears. They also released Secret Love Song, a duet with Jason Derulo, and cast a lasting spell over the BBC Music Awards.

Little Mix Biography (Wikipedia)

Little Mix are a British girl group formed in 2011 during the eighth series of the UK version of The X Factor. They were the first group to win the competition, and following their victory, they signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Music and released a cover of Damien Rice's "Cannonball" as their winner's single. The members are Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Jesy Nelson.

Little Mix released their debut album DNA in 2012, which peaked inside the top 10 in ten countries including the UK and US. This made Little Mix the first girl group since the Pussycat Dolls to reach the US top five with their debut album, as well as earning the highest debut US chart position for a British girl group's first release, breaking the record previously held by the Spice Girls. The group's second album Salute (2013) became their second album to debut inside the top 10 in both the UK and US. Their third album Get Weird was released in 2015. Their fourth album Glory Days (2016) became their first number one album in the UK, and also achieved the longest-reigning girl group number one album since the Spice Girls' debut album 20 years earlier, and the highest first week UK album sales for a girl band since 1997. In the UK, the group has earned four number-one singles, including "Wings", "Black Magic" and "Shout Out to My Ex". Their fifth studio album LM5 was released in 2018 to generally favourable reviews. The group have sold 50 million records worldwide, making them one of the best-selling girl groups of all time.
