The semi final of Little Mix: The Search aired last night (November 6) after being postponed last week for a special news broadcast where Boris Johnson announced the second national lockdown. In the latest episode, one group had to be eliminated before tonight’s finale.
The episode kicked off with a mash-up performance of two Little Mix singles “Holiday” and “Touch” where they donned the stage in orange and silver metallic futuristic outfits, likely a nod to their “Holiday” music video which is set on a spa on Mars.
Following Little Mix’s performance the remaining five semi-finalists went head-to-head in an attempt to win the votes of Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall, Jesy Nelson and Leigh-Anne Pinnock.
Both boy groups received the lowest scores of the night after their performances and had to singing for survival.
After both groups performed for a second time, the judges were split as Perrie and Jade voted to save Since September and Jesy and Leigh-Anne voted to save New Priority.
The debate on who to send home sparked a rather tense conversation between the girl group, where Perrie told her bandmates she would “back” Since September to the very end while Jesy was adamant she wouldn’t change her mind about New Priority.
It was Leigh-Anne who compromised her stance and made the decisive call to send New Priority home.
The four groups fighting in the final for a place on Little Mix’s 2021 Confetti tour are Melladaze, YChange, Since September and Nostalia.
However, the winner will not be decided by Little Mix and it will all come down the public vote – find out how to cast your vote here.
Little Mix: The Search final continues Saturday, November 7 at 6.05pm on BBC One and iPlayer.
