Brit Awards 2016: Little Mix Slammed by Fans for ‘Miming’?


The Brit awards was spectacular because of the talented artists who attended and performed on the show. However, not everyone was pleased with Little Mix’s performance. The latest buzz reported that they have been slammed by fans because of “miming.”

The all-girl quartet perform their single “Black Magic” during the awards night but some fans were disappointed with the lip-syncing of the chorus, notes The Sun. According to the website, people began criticising the group via social media for only singing the verses.

“I’m furious Little Mix are miming the chorus. Almost as mad as I was when the Spice Girls didn’t,” said one Tweet from user Cristo Foufas. Meanwhile, Twitter account holder Tara Tomes noticed more “miming.”

“Firstly, too much crotch… Little Mix, nice try, but your miming is terrible for the pre-recorded chorus. Thanks for coming, though. #BRITs,” read the post. The group was nominated for British Artist Video and British single but failed to bag any of these titles.

Prior to their performance, Jesy Nelson admitted on Radio 1 that she can barely breathe with the dance routine.

“We feel like this is the biggest performance we’ve ever done in our lives. We’re pooing ourselves,” she said.  Zayn Malik’s ex-girlfriend, Perrie Edwards, added that “there are a lot of things that could go wrong in our performance, lots of fiddly bits.”

Contrary to the report, Hollywood Life believes that Little Mix looked amazing and their performance of “Black Magic” sounded better. “It was awesome,” noted the website. They added that the girls are “super-fun” to watch onstage with the outfits inspired by tribal elements that match the song.

Additionally, HL wrote that the gals looked like “four peas in a pod” wearing emerald green outfits matching their personalities.
