One of The X Factor‘s biggest global success stories, Little Mix rose to fame having taken home a win on the eighth season of the UK version in 2011. Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock auditioned as individuals before being grouped together during the bootcamp stage. Changing their name from Rhythmix mid-season – due to its usage elsewhere – the band delighted UK audiences with renditions of En Vogue’s Don’t Let Go and Katy Perry’s E.T., among others.
The band had already found widespread acclaim even before beating Marcus Collins in the season’s final. Afterwards, Little Mix appeared on a national ad campaign for Marks & Spencer and featured on the charity single, Wishing On A Star. Following their success on the show, the four-piece unveiled a cover of Damien Rice’s Cannonball and reached No.1 on the official UK album chart. However, they narrowly missed out on the coveted Christmas No.1 to the Military Wives Choir.
The band released their second single Wings in August 2012 and returned to the top of the UK charts. Both singles appeared on their debut album DNA later that year, which reached the top five both at home and across the Atlantic. From there, Little Mix proved unstoppable, becoming one of the decade’s most successful pop acts. Salute followed in 2013, and Get Weird in 2015, the latter going double Platinum and reaching No.2 on the UK album charts.
In 2016, Little Mix released Glory Days, their first UK No.1 album, spurred on by the singles Shout Out To My Ex and Touch. Its huge success continued Little Mix’s pop dominance, bolstered by vast global tours, including one alongside Ariana Grande. Their fifth studio album, the aptly titled LM5, appeared in 2018, hosting Woman Like Me featuring Nicki Minaj.
In September 2020, they launched their Little Mix: The Search TV series, in which the band act as mentors to a new wave of talent. Two months later Little Mix released their sixth studio album, Confetti, featuring the hit singles Sweet Melody, Break Up Song and Holiday.
On 8 February 2021, Little Mix announced rescheduled 2022 dates for The Confetti Tour supporting the new album, with an extra date added in Cardiff.
