The X Factor Journey
Perrie Edwards’ first audition for The X Factor was You Oughta Know by Alanis Morisette. After this, she failed to make it through the Bootcamp round and was placed into a four-piece group named ‘Faux Pas’ alongside Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock.
Little Mix came in the form on 28 October 2011. Soon, they became the first girl band in the history of The X Factor to reach the finals.
On 11 December 2011, Little Mix became the winner of the show. The first band ever in the history of the show to become the winner.
The band did a live performance of their first single, ‘Cannonball,’ in the finals, which later came out worldwide.
Little Mix’s Glorious Career
Perrie Edwards has released six albums and one greatest hits album with the band DNA (2012), Salute (2013), Get Weird (2015), Glory Days (2016), LM5 (2018), and Confetti (2020), and Between Us (2021).
Little Mix released their debut single ‘Wings’ in August 2012. A few months later, their debut album DNA came out in November. The album had a fantastic breakthrough. It charted no.3 in both Ireland and UK. In January 2013, the group signed a deal with Columbia Records.
The debut album DNA came out with three singles, ‘Wings,’ ‘DNA,’ and ‘Change Your Life. It was an amazing start to the journey of girls as a band. In the US, ‘Wings’ charted number 79 on Billboard Top 100. On 4 March 2013, ‘How ya Doin’ was announced as the final single from DNA. It featured Grammy-winning artist Missy Elliot.
Unfortunately, on 2 December 2021, Little Mix announced they would take a short break after their Confetti Tour. The gap is due to focus on their personal lives and health. Although, the group promised to come back together in the future. The band’s last performance in o2 Arena, London, had live streaming. It was known as Little Mix: The Last Show (for now…).
The news of hiatus disheartened the fans, but the band’s constant promises to come back stronger and better gave them hope.
