Glory Days: Little Mix


Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall formed Little Mix during the eighth series of X Factor in 2011 after failing as soloists to complete the 'boot camp' stage.
They triumphed in the contest's final and topped the UK singles charts with their version of Damien Rice's Cannonball.

They have since released four albums, with this year's Glory Days going straight in at number one.

On November 26 this year they joined Craig David, Professor Green, Olly Murs, Louise Johnson, Busted, Clean Bandit, Sigala, Dua Lipa and Calum Scott at the Genting Arena for Free Radio Live. Little Mix were last part of the annual event's line-up in 2013.

Salute: Little Mix in 2013


Debut album, DNA, released in 2012, was a hit in Britain and America, as was the follow-up, 2013's Salute.

In many ways, however, it was their third album, 2015's Get Weird, that was the real turning point for Little Mix. Released in the hugely competitive month of November it crashed into the UK chart at number two, spent the rest of that year in the top ten and by August 2016 had become the biggest-selling album of their career.
