Little mix who are they dating updating pirated software
The previous longest-surviving girl groups were The Conway Sisters (series 2) and Hope (series 4), who had both lasted until week 7.
Through the remaining course of the competition the group generally received positive feedback.
They may have had a hit with Shout Out To My Ex, but Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall are famously private about their love lives – preferring to let the music do the talking.
Their rendition was praised by the judges with Gary Barlow calling them the "best girl band that’s ever been on The X Factor." On 26 October 2011, the band announced that they would change their name following a dispute with Rhythmix, a Brighton-based children's music charity of the same name, after the programme tried to trademark "Rhythmix".
A spokesman for The X Factor said, "At the request of the charity Rhythmix, the members of the girl group Rhythmix have decided to change their name, a decision which has the support of Syco and Talkback THAMES." On 20 November 2011, Little Mix became the first girl group in the show's eight-year history to progress past the seventh live show.
The trip lasted a week and the group visited radio stations to promote the single and debut album.
They performed their single "Wings" on The X Factor Australia and on Australian breakfast-television show Sunrise.
