X Factor's Little Mix reveal plans to finally crack America in 2017


X Factor stars Little Mix are finally hoping to crack America in 2017.

The British girl band - who of course won The X Factor in 2011 - have had huge success here with four hit albums to date.

Their latest release Glory Days is Little Mix's fastest selling and their first to go to Number 1, while track Shout Out To My Ex gave the group their fourth Number 1 single.

They're arguably the most successful winners of The X Factor now, but progress in the States hasn't been easy.

Last album Get Weird sold just over 50,000 copies in America compared to the 600,000+ shifted here in the much smaller British market.

So will 2017 finally be Little Mix's year?

The hitmakers are set to head out on tour next year to support Ariana Grande on her Dangerous Woman dates, which the girls hope will help them grow support.

They told Music Choice in America (via Press Party): "Well, 2017. Especially for us, we want to show as much love as possible to America.

"To our American fans, to radio over here - we just... I feel like we come, we have a hype, we see everyone and then we go.

"I think with being on the Ariana Grande tour for three whole months, we get to spend as much time here as possible and work very, very hard and try our best to break America.

"Because we want you, badly!"

We'll have to remember to check back this time next year to see if they made it...
