Little Mix Perform En Vogue’s ‘Don’t Let Go’ At NTA’s

Published: Wednesday 25th Jan 2012 by Sam

Little Mix were keen to show their X Factor tonight at the National Television Awards – their first major TV performance since winning the show last month.

Yet, in a strange move, the ladies opted to perform a cover of En Vogue‘s ‘Don’t Let Go’ instead of their own single ‘Cannonball’.

In any case, peep how the Pop outfit fared after the jump…

Not bad. Although the “karaoke” nature of this only heightened my appreciation for the original. “Funky diva” status takes time and seasoning.

Your thoughts?

    Oh wow, that was incredible. Still not sure on their name though.

    That performance was great and their vocals are outstanding. I’m glad they performed this, “Cannonball” is a bit of a snooze fest and I guess they wanted to entertain the audience.

    If this sounds like karaoke to you I would love to know which karaoke bars you go to…

    I really like Little Mix but I think if they leave their album release too late, they will lose out to StooShe. They do the whole urban girlgroup much better and are getting big radio airplay from Capital FM and Radio 1 with their new single ‘Love Me’.

    Wait…these chicks actually sound good. They really put it down…I’m going to have to replay that real quick.

    I’m glad people in your comments are really liking them. Although it didn’t quite capture the feeling and emotion they gave during the two performances on X Factor, they still put it down 🙂

    I love the girl with the Ted hair… Finally An all girl group he can ALL SING

    Not a group since Destiny’s Child can sing LIVE and WITH HARMONY. Little Mix is that group. It’s too bad that Danity Kane, Pussycat Dolls, Sugababes, Eletrik Red couldn’t match that kind of talent. These girls did a great job!

    Loool @ThatGrapeJuice, I don’t see what the big deal is regarding them singing Don’t Let Go over Canonball as neither is their song…, at least they chose DLT…, Canonball was forced on them.

    Little Mix are great though and I’m looking forward to hearing their own stuff once it’s ready as like everyone else’s is agreeing, they can all really sing…, which let’s be honest for a British Girl group is actually pretty rare.

    Anything they sing outside of Don’t Let Go will flop. They will tumble all because of what Tulisa did to Misha B and Kelly. Bottom line.

    This is my favorite En Vogue song. Not only is it on my mp3 player but it’s also included on one my playlists so I listen to the original quite often. I SEE WHERE SAM IS COMING FROM! Although they sound better than karaoke, this performance does make you appreciate the original even more. This group just doesn’t have the soul and power that En Vogue had in their prime. This group’s inferior ability to harmonize is also obvious. They really set the bar too high for themselves when they decided to do a En Vogue cover.

    Its pretty obvious why they didn’t sing Cannonball – that song was totally unsuitable for them and its pretty crap in a boring way as well. Don’t Let Go is a pop classic and they probably haven’t had any songs of their own written for them yet. This is the best I’ve heard them sound so far – on the X-Factor their harmonising was more than a little dubious, frankly I thought they were overrated on the show. However, they certainly nailed that performance so I’ll reserve judgement until their own material is released ;o)

    Only the people stupid enough to blame Little Mix for Tulisa’s actions will want them to “tumble”. And if that includes anyone (besides you) then it will be a significant minority. Bottom line.

    Im not sure what you’re hearing but .
    This is a terrible performance.
    To even put them in the same sentence as en vogue and destinys child is blasphemy.
    They were all over the place.
    Their harmony isn’t together at all.
    If danity Kane worked harder and were out longer they were the true heirs to the girl group throne.
    Get it together and check those ears.
    Maybe its been so long that you heard a decent vocal group so you all for how one was supposed to sound.
