Talk about talent! The girls of Little Mix stopped by BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge and paid tribute to the legendary singer Whitney Houston by singing one of her iconic songs days after her daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, has passed away.
This is one of the best mash-ups we’ve heard in a while! Little Mix performed an incredible mix of “Want To Want Me” by Jason Derulo and “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” by Whitney Huston in the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge on July 28 and we are blown away! You must watch this video for yourselves!
Skip to 1:25 in the video above to hear the epic mashup! How amazing, right?! We can’t get enough of it. The talented girls of Little Mix recently did an interview with hungertv where they talked all about their craft.
“When we first got together I think we realised that there wasn’t anyone that was representing girls in a positive way without being overly sexual. I think we’ve filled that gap now”, Jade Thirlwall said. “At first we were worried about getting girls on our side”, she continued, “but thankfully they came flooding in. I think young girls needed an ally in music.” Leigh-Anne Pinnock said, “We’re going through the same things as our fans, and music can really help you when you’re struggling.”
You may or may not know this, but Little Mix actually won UK’s X-factor a few years back! “If you come off The X-Factor and expect everything to be handed to you, that’s when it falls apart”, Jesy Nelson said. “That’s where a lot of artists that come off The X-Factor fall down, they’re there and then they’re gone in a flash. We had to work so hard and I don’t think people realise that – it was never easy – but we kept that mentality up and that’s why I think we’ve been successful. Anyone that says it’s not credible, I’d like to see them give it a go!” she continued.
