Little Mix Band Bio
Little Mix formed in 2011 as part of the 8th season of The X Factor UK. Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jesy Nelson and Jade Thirlwall all auditioned as solo acts, but were thrown together as a group and ultimately won the competition! As soloists they all succeeded, but didn't make it past bootcamp - turned out their power as soloists didn't compare to their potential together. They originally wanted to call themselves Rhythmix, but ended up with Little Mix instead.
The first song Little Mix released as a group was "Cannonball," a cover of a Damien Rice song.The girls were so popular they even penned a deal to release dolls, puzzles and other toys of themselves last spring. In November 2012 Little Mix released their debut album, DNA! DNA features the hit tracks "Change Your Life" and "How Ya Doin'" (featuring [kwlink 24484]Missy Elliott[/kwlink].)
