Little Mix headed back home to the show that launched their career to deliver a sizzling hot performance of their new Nicki Minaj collab single “Woman Like Me.” The internationally-renowned girl group performed the track during the week two live results show of “The X Factor UK,” which aired Oct. 29 in the U.S. on AXS TV.
It seems hard to believe it’s already been seven years since the sharply-dressed foursome made history as the first group to ever win the popular UK-based reality singing competition. Like season 15 “X Factor UK” judge Louis Tomlinson and One Direction, the girls were put together as a group after being eliminated as soloists during the bootcamp round back in season eight.
Fast forward to 2018 and Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jade Thirlwall and Perrie Edwards have arguably become one of the biggest girl groups on the planet. Their 2016 fourth studio album, Glory Days, became their first No. 1 album on the UK charts and spawned the chart-topping single “Shout Out to My Ex.” Now, the girls are back promoting their highly-anticipated fifth studio album, LM5, which is slated to drop on Nov. 16.
The sassy lead single, “Woman Like Me,” features rapper Nicki Minaj and the music video for the track boasts a sweet retro vibe. The girls were all business for their “X Factor” live performance (which was unfortunately minus Minaj). They were dressed in chic black plants and high-neck tops as they lyrically contemplated whether a potential love interest could handle “a woman like me.”
Little Mix performed during the week two live results show in which Groups contenders LMA Choir and Overs Contender Janice Robinson were eliminated.
To date, “Woman Like Me” has hit the top five on the UK and U.S. charts, coming in at No. 5 on the UK Singles chart and No. 4 on the U.S. Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart. Little Mix will be touring in 2019 to support their upcoming album, including a three-night run at The SSE Hydro in Glasgow, United Kingdom on Oct. 17 (Tickets), Oct. 18 (Tickets) and Oct. 19 (Tickets).
