Little Mix’s performance at the EMAs may have been Mixers’ highlight of the night but Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall, who also hosted the event without bandmate Jesy Nelson, made the ceremony their own.
The EMAs should have been renamed the LMAs on Sunday night as Little Mix hosted the virtual event as well as performing their new single ‘Sweet Melody’, which came complete with dance breaks and vocal changes that only the girls could carry off.
Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirwall presented the ceremony without bandmate Jesy Nelson, who had to pull out of the gig, as well as The Search final, at the last minute.
But the trio made it work nonetheless, and their performance isn’t the only thing fans can’t stop talking about.
Here are four unmissable moments from Little Mix at the EMAs…
After breaking the internet with their ‘Sweet Melody’ music video a few weeks ago, Little Mix did it again with a live performance of the bop during the EMAs.
From Jade covering Jesy’s vocals to their all-white futuristic outfits, which led Perrie to be dubbed ‘the hottest Michellin man’, the performance quickly became one of the most-viewed on the night.
The girls even revived the noughties tradition of a dance break mid-way through, with moves we’re definitely going to see all over TikTok this week.
Forever our style icons, we lost count of Little Mix’s outfit changes throughout the EMAs.
At one point Jade wore a spiked skirt to ensure her bandmates stayed two meres away, but it was Leigh-Anne’s sheer leggings and plunging bodysuit which slayed the red carpet.
Can we also just take a moment to admire Perrie’s tuxedo body complete with huge blue ruffles as her silhouette, like a totally extra Cinderella?
But they also switched things up whilst presenting, proving they’re literally magic with smooth outfit-changes that would make Insta-bloggers jealous.
Not only did Little Mix establish themselves as hosts of one of the biggest music events in the world, they also proved exactly why they deserved to be there by scooping two awards.
The girls won Best Pop and Best UK and Ireland Act.
Clearly missing their bestie and bandmate Jesy, Leigh-Anne, Perrie and Jade made sure to give her a shoutout at every opportunity.
When they won Best Pop Leigh-Anne said: “We so wish our girl Jesy was here to receive this with us, she’d be so happy.”
And on Instagram after the event, each of the girls made sure to tell Jesy just how much they missed her.
