Meet the newest U.K. pop sensation to invade the U.S. airwaves, Little Mix! They are an infectious R&B/pop music group made up of four very talented young women.

Winners of the U.K. X Factor Season 8, this powerhouse girl group is reminiscent of the talented '90s American quartet En Vogue.

Little Mix envokes sassiness to a whole new level by fusing their R&B flavor with the pop/rock music scene. Little Mix has also been compared to the U.K.'s dynamite girl group the Spice Girls.

This newest group sensation out of the U.K., is sure to be a huge success in the United States and worldwide. Watch out One Direction, the U.K. has another hit group taking the music world by storm.

Members of Little Mix

Jade Thirlwall

Jade Emelia Thirlwall is one of the younger members of the group Little Mix. Jade was born on December 26, 1992. She resides near South Shields with her mom and brother.

Jade is the most persistent of the group. She auditioned for the X Factor three times before catching a break. Like her other bandmates, she too auditioned as a solo artist and didn't make it.

She was brought back as part of the trio Orion, but was cut yet again. Finally, she was brought back to be part of the quartet known as Rhythmics (later changed to Little Mix) and became part of the first group to win X Factor Season 8.

She has been rumored to be dating Sam Craske of the group Diversity, but reports have shown that the couple has since split up due to busy schedules.

Jade was nicknamed "Cutie Mix" by her bandmates.

Jesy Nelson

The oldest member of the group is Jessica (Jesy) Louise Nelson. Jesy Nelson was born on June 14th, 1991. Jesy Nelson is from Romford, London. She resided their with her moth and three siblings, Jonathan, Jade, and Joseph.

Jesy Nelson is a fashion chameleon of the group known for often changing the color of her hair from dark brown tresses, to blonde, to a signature vibrant red hue. She is known for her adventurous fashion style and is definitely a trend setter.

Jesy Nelson originally auditioned for the X Factor Season 8 as a solo artist but was cut during the bootcamp's first round. She was then put in the group Faux Pas with fellow Little Mix member Perrie Edwards, but their group did not make it to the judge's houses.

Later called back again to form a second group called Rhythmix (changed to Little Mix), Jesy found success with her fellow bandmates. Little Mix became the first group to ever win the X Factor.

Jesy was nicknamed "Swagger Mix" by her bandmates.

Perrie Edwards

The youngest member of the group Little Mix is Perrie Louise Edwards, who was born on July 10, 1993. Like her group-mate Jade Thirlwall, Perrie is also from the South Shields area. She has one sibling, an older brother.

Like all of her other group mates, Perrie auditioned as a solo artist on the X Factor Season 8. She didn't make it as a solo artist, but was teamed up with Jade in the group Faux Pas.

Faux Pas also did not make it onto the show, and she was recast as a group member for Rhythmics (later named Little Mix).

Perrie comes from a musical family. Her mother was a singer and her father is in a band called Alexander's Palace.

Perrie is nicknamed "Hippy Mix" by her bandmates. Perrie Edwards is rumored to be dating Zayn Malik from One Direction.

Leigh-Anne Pinnock

Leigh-Anne Pinnock is the second oldest member of the group Little Mix. Leigh-Anne is from High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, where she resides with her two older sisters Sian-Louise and Sarah.

Before auditioning as a solo artist on Season 8 of the U.K. X Factor, Leigh-Anne was a waitress at Pizza Hut.

Like her bandmates, Leigh-Anne was unsuccessful as a solo artist on the X-Factor's first rounds. She was paired with fellow Little Mix member, Jade Thirlwall in the trio Orion, but still did not make it to the judges houses.

She was asked back once again to join the quartet group known as the Rhythmics (later changed to Little Mix) where she and her fellow bandmates became the first group to ever win X Factor.

Leigh-Anne has been nicknamed "Fiery Mix" by her bandmates. Leigh-Anne is rumored to be dating Jordan Kiffin who plays football (soccer) for Ashford Town.

Interesting hub. I loved their song that was in the YouTube video. It's stuck in my head after only one listen. Since I can't watch the X Factor UK, I am curious to know... were the members of Little Mix a group originally when auditions took place or were these four girls individual solo acts when they auditioned and then were put together as a group act?
