Little Mix The Search has sent home its first band.
Yes, Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jesy Nelson decided it was the end of the road for the mixed group Jasper Blue after the first week of live shows.
It was a hard decision for the girls following a stellar sing-off with the girl dance group Melladaze, seeing Perrie break down in tears as she sent them home.
Getting emotional, she said: ‘Oh my god, this is horrible – the band I would like to save is Melladaze.’
But despite the difficult decision, this now means Little Mix is one step closer to finding the band who will support them on their Confetti tour next year – and we’re excited.
The live shows were supposed to launch last week however, they were forced to delay the episode after some of the crew members tested positive for Covid-19.
At the time, the BBC confirmed the news in a statement, which read: ‘We can confirm that a small number of people on the Little Mix The Search production have tested positive for coronavirus and they are now self-isolating following the latest government guidelines.
‘Due to the format of the show we have made the decision to postpone Saturday’s programme.
‘There are rigorous protocols in place to manage Covid-19 as the safety of all those involved in the production is paramount.
‘We hope to be back on air on Saturday 24 October.’
And the team weren’t the only ones in quarantine, as Jade had to video-call into the show while isolating at home.
This does not mean she has coronavirus herself, but is likely to have come into contact with someone who has.
Her reps have said: ‘Jade has to self-isolate this week and will therefore be carrying out her role as Mentor on Little Mix The Search from home.
‘For this Saturday’s show, Jade will participate via video link, continuing to mentor alongside Jesy, Leigh-Anne and Perrie.’
The series follows the former X Factor winners on their mission to find the perfect act to take on the road with them in 2021.
They’re now left with the boyband New Priority, girl vocal group Nostalia, girl dance group Melladaze, RnB and Hip Hop group YChange, and live instrumental band Since September.
But who will come out on top?
Little Mix The Search continues next Saturday on BBC One.
