Little Mix performance interrupted by giant bug attack – watch

Girl group were performing 'How Ya Doin?' in Phoenix, Arizona

Little Mix were interrupted by a flying insect while performing in the US over the weekend.

The British girl group were appearing at a Live 101.5 radio event in Phoenix, Arizona on Sunday (August 9) when their performance of ‘How Ya Doin?’ was thwarted by what they described as “the biggest bug we’ve ever seen”.

“Can we just give Jade [Thirlwall] a round of applause because she carried on with a bug in her hair,” singer Jesy Nelson told the crowd after finishing the song.

“I’ve never seen anything like that before, it was literally burrowing itself into her hair,” added bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock.

In March, Little Mix confirmed work on their third album and described it as “different” and a “progression”.

The pop group released their second album ‘Salute’ in 2013, following on from the 2012 debut.


In 2013, Little Mix broke the Spice Girls’ US chart record with their debut album, ‘DNA’, entering the Billboard 200 chart at Number Four. It was the highest ever debut for an British female group, beating the Number Five position the Spice Girls achieved in 1997 with their debut album ‘Spice’.
