Little Mix have landed their own BBC One entertainment series.
Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock will conduct a search for talented singers to become members of all-female, all-male or mixed bands in Little Mix The Search.
The 7 part series will be made by ModestTV for the Beeb.
“We want to create lots of incredible groups who really gel. As we have been there and done it ourselves, we know what it takes to make a group successful, and will be there to mentor them every step of the way. We want solo artists to audition as well as groups and every type of genre is welcome too. It’s going to be really exciting and people can apply right now!” – Little Mix
The singers who make it into the new bands will live together and be given access to Little Mix’s inner circle who have contributed to their success, including vocal coaches, song writers, producers and stylists.
The winning group will get the chance to join Little Mix on their UK summer tour in 2020.
“One of Britain’s most popular all-female bands Little Mix will bring their magic to BBC One on Saturday nights in 2020 in a brand new show set to inspire the next generation of young artists.” – Charlotte Moore
Little Mix The Search will air on BBC One next year.
Little Mix came to prominence as winners of the eighth series of The X Factor in 2011 – their victory was watched by 12.8 million viewers and marked the first time a group had won the ITV series. The girls have achieved four UK number ones with Cannonball, Wings, Black Magic and Shout Out to My Ex.
They released their debut album DNA in 2012, which peaked inside the top 10 in ten countries including the UK and the states. Their second album Salute was put out in 2013 and became their second album to debut inside the top 10 in the UK and America while 2016’s Glory Days became their first number one album in the UK.
The group won Best British Single for Shout Out to My Ex at the 2017 Brit Awards and Best British Video for Woman Like Me at the 2019 Brit Awards.
