Oh no! Little Mix was forced to deal with an unwanted stage invasion while performing in Arizona on Aug. 9. The culprit? A giant flying bug! Watch the girls’ hilarious reaction to the attack here!
Performing live on stage is nerve-wracking enough, never mind having to contend with a huge, flying insect! And yet, that’s exactly what the members of Little Mix had to do when a large, unidentified (and definitely unwelcome) bug attacked them during their performance in Phoenix, Arizona on Aug. 9. Seriously, we’re squirming in our seats just watching it!
The foursome were performing their song “How Ya Doin?” when the bug attack happened. Each of the ladies had their own over-the-top reaction, consisting mostly of screaming and running, while Jade Thirlwall, 22, was forced to practice some crazy hair flips to try to keep it from burrowing in her hair. Gross! Meanwhile, Perrie Edwards, 22, was busy attempting to swat the bug away with her shoe because hey, whatever it takes, right?
Despite the distraction, the group did an impressive job of keeping the performance going and even tossing in a few improvised lyrics about the harrowing event in between. Of course, Jade did later admit on Twitter that she’s now officially “haunted for life,” so perhaps it wasn’t all fun and games. We feel for you ladies!
All in all, it’s just nice to just see the ladies (especially Perrie) laughing and smiling together on the road again. Perrie of course, is currently going through a rough time following her very public split from ex Zayn Malik, 22. The Little Mix beauty has spent the better part of the last few weeks deleting all traces of her ex on social media and leaning on her girls for support. As for her next move, Perrie is expected to break her silence about Zayn when the group sits down with James Corden, 36, on The Late Late Show on Aug. 18. While there’s no promising that she’ll discuss her broken relationship, something tells us that she might be ready to air her grievances by then, so stay tuned!
What do you think HollywoodLifers — was that on-stage bug attack hysterical or just plain gross?
