The one year I watched the X Factor was when Little Mix were on. It was a mostly mediocre and miserable watch except for their final episode where they did Don’t Let Go and absolutely smashed it. Think they generally seem like decent people and DNA was on my party playlist for quite a long time during the golden age of mid 00s pop along with Kesha, Miley Cyrus, Nick Jonas etc.
Like others I’ve been pretty surprised at their success. I always find their songs too busy, like there’s a hook in there somewhere but you have to find it under all the other shit they’ve thrown at it.
I’m a sucker for girl groups and would love to love them, they just don’t have the songs or personality to really grab me.
Hmm, I’m a pop music aficionado but LM couldn’t get above a 2 for me at best. Black Magic is a banger, but nothing else from them on the radio ever stood out for me, beyond the odd bit of surprisingly busy percussion.
Nowhere near the legacy or Greatest Hits collection of a Girls Aloud or Sugababes and, even outside the girlbands, there’s way better pop out there.
