X Factor 2011: Rhythmix rename themselves 'Little Mix'


It was confirmed earlier this week that girl group Rhythmix were going to change their name and today, Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirwell and Leigh-Anne Pinnock announced they were now going to call themselves 'Little Mix'. How cute!

They wrote on Twitter: We're really excited to announce that as of now our new name is Little Mix! We came up with this name with Tulisa, and we love it-hope our Little Mixers like it too!"

In a statement on their Facebook page, the group commented: "When we came up with the name Rhythmix, we had no idea that there was a charity with the same name.

"We decided to change our name to Little Mix as we do not want to cause any problems for the charity, and we're happy that this has now been resolved."

They continued: "We're the same girls as we've always been and we want to thank all of our fans for their continued support of us.

"We came up with some ideas for our new name which we discussed with Tulisa and she had some ideas too. We all agreed on Little Mix as it just felt right."
