REVIEW: Little Mix Served Girlpower in Copenhagen

The British girl group Little Mix stopped by Falconer Salen in Copenhagen, Denmark, on June 14 as a part their Get Weird tour.

Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Jesy Nelson opened the show with a high-energy performance of ‘Grown’. With that number, the girls set the agenda for the night; they made a statement that they are who they are and they won’t apologize for it. The show’s theme was feminism with a big fat F and the ladies looked fierce while showing off their sexy and confident dance moves.

After the opening, they sang their hit songs ‘Move’ and ‘Hair’, which is also their current single. Little Mix quickly got the party started and continued to pump up the crowd who were desperate for more songs.

During the night, the girls proved that although they are four completely different individuals, they’re still a united force that manages to create magic. Their vocals shine through on every track, whether it be a top-produced dance track like ‘Wings’, a powerful ballad such as ‘Secret Love Song pt 2’ or a strong acapella number like ‘The End’. Little Mix are able to do it all and it showed during their concert.

Around the middle of the show, the four girls also performed a medley of cover songs which included, ‘Crazy in Love’ by Beyoncé and ‘Where Are You Now’ by Justin Bieber. These songs gave them the opportunity to show off their dancing skills which were one of the main focus points of the night.

It cannot be denied that these girls know how to work a crowd. Although the venue only held 3.000 people, Little Mix performed as if it was the Summertime Ball at Wembley Stadium. They talked to their fans in between every single song throughout the night, something very few artists do. They have a rare ability to create a genuine connection between themselves and their crowd; it was a joy to experience.

As June 14 happened to be Jesy Nelson’s 25th birthday, the Danish Mixers had a few surprises in store for the singer. At the middle of the show, they sang Happy Birthday as Nelson’s fiance, Jake Roche, came on stage with a birthday cake. During the encore, the crowd sang a Danish birthday song to the singer who was clearly gobsmacked.

It is clear that Little Mix aren’t just colleagues – but best friends. When you’re at a show as a part of the crowd you can feel how close they are. Their friendship makes the experience that more special. You can see it in the small things such as when Nelson hugged Perrie Edwards after Edwards managed to hit a long and high note at the end of the ballad ‘Little Me’. It was also noticable when Jade Thirlwall noticed a fansign in the crowd with “Jerrie” written on it. “Jerrie” refers to the close friendship between Thirlwall and Edwards. The two singers got the entire crowd to scream their names which came as a pleasant surprise to many in attendance.

The last song of the night was ‘Get Weird’ which is a song about embracing yourself. During this number, their four male dancers came out on stage in sumo suits, something that was a surprise to the girls. Weirdly enough, it fit the spirit of the song.

The encore consisted of an acapella version of ‘The End’ which enchanted everyone in the audience. The Final number was their 2015 smash hit ‘Black Magic’. The song was a perfect closer as it got everyone in the crowd to sing and dance along.

Little Mix’s Get Weird Tour is definitely a must-see this concert season. The four girls showed everyone that they are unapologetic lady bosses who are ready to take on the world.
