On Sunday night, Little Mix gave its first live performance in months on “The X Factor UK” and the girls are already getting criticized for their outfit choices. While watching the first performance of their new single “Shout Out To My Ex,” many viewers felt that the ladies looked like strippers or prostitutes rather than singers.
One of the group’s harshest critics was former Spice Girl Melanie C who feels the group has gotten more provocative as time has gone on. “I loved them from ‘The X Factor.’ I just thought they were so different,” she said about the group.
Calling them the new Spice Girls, Melanie goes on to say, “They are all gorgeous and great singers. But they weren’t sexy and it’s got more and more that way. I love them – but I just say, ‘Stay you.'”
However, some people didn’t feel that way after watching Little Mix perform and even Jesy Nelson, who had her important bits covered, felt the only con was the amount of wedgies she dealt with. “I had loads. I really tried to slyly pull out my leotard,” she revealed in a BBC Radio 1 interview.
