After ending 2016 on a high with ‘Glory Days’ becoming Little Mix’s first Number 1 album, 2017 definitely looked more than promising for Jesy, Perrie, Leigh-Anne and Jade.

The past twelve months have quite possibly been the most successful for the phenomenal girl group, and here at CelebMix, we take a look back at the incredible year they have had, and just some of the many highlights that have helped make this year so successful for them!
Back in February, the girls performed ‘Shout Out To My Ex’ at the BRIT Awards and on the same night, they won their first BRIT Award for the ultimate break-up anthem. This remains a huge achievement for the band and was extremely well deserved!

In 2017, Little Mix also supported Ariana Grande on a segment of her ‘Dangerous Woman Tour.’ This provided Little Mix with the opportunity to build on their ever-growing legion of fans in various countries, particularly in America.
In correlation with supporting Ariana Grande came the girls’ performance at ‘One Love Manchester,’ a beneficiary concert held for those who unfortunately lost their lives in the terrorist attack at Manchester Arena on May 22 at Ariana’s concert.
Little Mix performed ‘Wings’ at the ‘One Love Manchester’ concert, which took place on 4 June.
In June 2017, Little Mix were one of the headline acts to feature on Capital FM’s Summertime Ball line-up. Some of their killer performances included ‘Power’ and Sean Paul joined them when they performed ‘Hair’!
2017 also saw Little Mix travelling around the world with their ‘Glory Days Tour,’ performing to their legions of fans night after night in various countries. This tour allowed the girls to perform tracks from their latest album to their dedicated Mixers and of course, allowed Mixers to see the band live.

And to the fans that got us here we owe it ALL to you.. you are without a doubt the best fans anyone could ask for! And I can’t wait to see you all again soon! ??????? leigh ??
