Little Mix, who are basically pop legends have been a force to be reckoned with ever since they were the first band to win The X Factor in the UK. The girls career has gone from strength to strength over the years, and in 2017 they are enjoying more success than ever.
The girls are currently smashing it on Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman World Tour in the States and will perform back in the UK on Wednesday at this years Brit Awards where the girls are nominated for three awards!! Little Mix are up for Best British Group, Best British Single for their number 1 smash Shout Out To My Ex and Best British Video for Hair.
This may leave you shook but Little Mix are yet to pick up an award at the Brits which really isn’t on. I mean.. hey, how ya doin’ Brits?! Why no wins for LM yet?! 😦
If it wasn’t totally obvs why Little Mix deserve a win this year, here are 5 reason why they should:
1. They are the biggest girl band in the UK right now
After achieving their 1st number one album last year as well as their 4th number one single, the girls sealed the deal and proved they are the biggest girl band in the UK right now releasing their 4th platinum album. With 15 hit singles, these girls have been preparing themselves for worldwide domination for some time.
2. Biggest UK arena tour of 2016
I hate to brag but if you haven’t seen Little Mix live yet then you should be super jealous of those that have. The girls are a PHENOMENAL live act and their ticket sales clearly prove that as evidence. Their 3rd tour named ‘Get Weird’ was named the biggest UK arena tour of last year selling an impressive 300,000 tickets across 34 dates. The tour ended up having a total of 60 dates visiting the rest of Europe, Australia and Asia. To top it all off, the tour became the fifth highest grossing tour by a girl group of all time and the fourth by a western one, grossing over $25.6 million. GO ON LADIES.
3. They just released their most fastest album to date
Get Weird, released in late 2015 has gone on to sell over 600,000 albums in the UK being certified double platinum. Their latest album Glory Days became their first number one album spending five weeks at the top spot and has already sold way over 300,000 in 3 months making it their fastest selling to date and not only that, it’s still in the top 10 albums chart selling really strong. Their first triple platinum album on the way? It sure looks like it!
4. It’s been far FAR too long since a girl band won a Brit award!!
It’s been EIGHT whole years since Girls Aloud won their first Brit Award in 2009 for Best British Single and that was the last time a girl band won an award at the ceremony. I mean.. it’s not really on is it? This isn’t the first time LM have been nominated for a Brit but 2016 was their biggest year and it would be perfect timing for the girls to celebrate their career at the top. Not only that, Little Mix are the only all female group nominated this year therefore they are doing it for all the girl groups out there!! C’MON BRITS. *praying hands emoji*, etc.
5. The girls define British pop music right now
Little Mix are the closest thing the UK will ever have to the Spice Girls basically. That is kinda fact. 20 years ago, the Spice Girls were dominating the pop scene and that is what Little Mix are doing 20 years later. If there’s any pop act anyone were to think of making pop music currently, Little Mix are always on the tip of everyone’s lips.
