The group – consisting of Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke’s body double Rosie Mac, Melina Halpin, Liam McHugh and Jordan Smithy – failed to impress the Shout Out To My Ex stars in the first live show.
They found themselves in the bottom two, with the judges choosing to save Melladaze after a final performance.
This put the pressure on a teary Perrie, as her vote ultimately sent the mixed band home.
Taking a second to gather herself as her voice cracked, the 27-year-old said: ‘Oh god, this is horrible.
‘The band I would like to save is Melladaze.’
Jesy Nelson confirmed she would have also sent Journey Blue home.
Rosie insisted that their time on the show was ‘incredible’, telling host Chris Ramsay: ‘The best experience ever’.
The series follows Little Mix on their mission to find the perfect act to take on the road with them in 2021, with the winners landing a supporting slot on their Confetti tour next year.
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.
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.
And Jade was also forced to appear via a video-call while she also quarantined at home.
While this doesn’t mean she has coronavirus herself, she may have come into contact with someone who tested positive.
Her reps confirmed: ‘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.’
Little Mix The Search continues next Saturday on BBC One.
