Little Mix is a well known British pop female band which was formerly known as Rhythmix which rose to fame in 2011 when attend and won The X Factor UK competition. The band is composed of members Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall.

Little Mix is the first group to ever take the grand prize. Their first single "Cannonball" is a great cover of the Damien Rice ballad 'Cannonball' which was released digitally the morning after their win. The song was produced by Fazer, who is the N-Dubz colleague and boyfriend of their mentor, Tulisa Contostavlos.

A four-piece girlband made up of Essex barmaid Jesy Nelson (20), High Wycombe waitress Leigh-Anne Pinnock (19), and South Shields students Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall (both 18). Originally known as Rhythmix, the group was originally formed at bootcamp from singers who auditioned as soloists. On 26 October 2011, Rhythmix announced that they would change their name due to pressure from a children’s music charity of the same name, after the programme tried to trademark “Rhythmix” in Europe. A spokesperson for The X Factor said, “At the request of the charity Rhythmix, the members of the girl group Rhythmix have decided to change their name, a decision which has the support of Syco and TalkbackTHAMES. The group’s new name will be announced in due course”. It was reported that the group decided to make the change, despite no legal reason to do so, to avoid any difficulties for the charity.

On 30 May, the quartet announced through a live stream via Twitcam that their debut single will be called "Wings". This stream was created after their filming session for Alan Carr: Chatty Man. The group performed the single for the first time at the T4 On The Beach concert on July 1. On 31 May 2012, it was announced that they would release an autobiography, which will be released on 31 August 2012 by Harper Collins. On 20 June 2012, they revealed the artwork and title, "Ready to Fly".
