They have achieved several firsts: First girl group in X Factor top 5, first group to win X Factor, first UK no 1 by any girl group since Girls Aloud (Saturdays got their first no 1 later), first X Factor winner to release an original single in summer, first UK girl group since All Saints to earn a double platinum single in Australia (and first since the Sugababes in 2005 to be in the top 3!) and first UK girl group ''EVER'' to go straight into the top 5 in the US with its debut album. They have also got hundreds of millions of Website/{{Youtube}} views. LM have 6 songs with at least 90 million views as of September 2016.

''Glory Days'' became the band's first UK no. 1 album, and was the fastest selling album in the country since David Bowie's death. It was also in the top 10 in over SIXTY worldwide iTunes charts. Whilst it didn't do as well in USA as the preceding 3 albums, Little Mix became the second girl group after TLC to have all their first 4 albums in the US top 30. They did, however, join the US leg of [[Ariana Grande]]'s tour, before headlining an arena tour in the same areas where the preceding album's tour took place (in Europe, bigger venues were used than the previous tour, and there were extra gigs for UK and Australia, as well as a "summer tour" in British stadiums.

** "No More Sad Songs" video is a clear homage to "Film/CoyoteUgly"



* TransAtlanticEquivalent: To Music/FifthHarmony of ''Series/TheXFactor USA'', given how they started as solo artists and were later put in a group. Other things people compare include that fact that Camilla, like with Jade, though Bowties were cool early on in her career, DJ and Jesy's hot bodies and distinct voices, and the styles, influences, and themes the separate Syco Music labelled bands sing about. Half the bands' fanbases catcall each other, but the bands themselves have been mostly openly supportive of each other (touring together and a couple of very public twitter pics of all 9 girls across both bands posing together!), and also of other competition.

** Perrie, who has a scar down the entire length of her stomach, showed it little when she was abused for her relationship with Zayn, but has since done regular swimsuit pics and showing off her scar in most gigs, now she is a single lady.

In 2013, they released the album ''Salute'' which followed its predecessor in being a transatlantic top tenner (it was even seen atop the US iTunes chart for a few hours, although it charted 6th- it would have been 4th if compilations were removed from the US albums chart as with the UK- and narrowly missed the top 5). This made Little Mix the first X Factor WINNER to have TWO US top 10 albums, the second act from the show after 1D, and the second UK girl group after the Spice Girls (many greats such as Bananarama, All Saints, Atomic Kitten, Sugababes, Girls Aloud and The Saturdays have only managed a top 20 album in the US at best if at all).

In 2015, after being forced to can US gigs and an entire album that they didn't think was good enough, LM came back in spectacular fashion with Black Magic spending 3 weeks at number 1 in the UK, and performing at the Teen Choice Awards and with Taylor Swift in spite of the shock split of Perrie with Zayn, formerly from 1D, at the same time. The girls released their most successful album yet in Get Weird, LM's most successful album in UK, Australia, and many European countries (in USA, it was narrowly denied a top 10 place, but still did well enough to make LM the most successful British girl group in USA EVER in terms of chart placings - as well as THE first girl group ever to have their first 3 albums start in the top 15!). In UK, it even outsold 1D's final album before their hiatus! It also led to LM's first world tour, which had gigs in UK extended, selling over 300,000 tickets, and the first worldwide gigs, including a couple in Europe upgraded because of the demand.

* BowTiesAreCool: Definately Jade. Her ident is of one, and in the video for "Wings", she stands in a room full of these.
* BreakUpSong: "Pretend It's O K", "Turn Your Face", "Going Nowhere", "Case Closed", "Love Me or Leave Me".

* CurseCutShort: ''"And if they give you sh..."'' from "Wings". The ''Series/{{Glee}}'' cast cover, however, did assume the girls swore, and replaced the "Shhh…" sound with hell. ''Series/AmericanIdol'' assumed the same as well, and replaced "sh" with "lip".

* DoubleStandard: The "DNA" video tells some incomprehensible story about a guy they have kidnapped. He appears tied up in Perrie's car, and the video ends with all four of them walking towards him about to do god-knows-what to him. It's pretty clear this is meant to be sexy. Now if a boyband had a music video showing a girl they kidnapped and tied up...
* FootballFightSong: "Change Your Life"... ironically enough.
* FourGirlEnsemble: Jade is the sweet-naive one, Jesy is the DeadpanSnarker, Leigh-Anne is the glamorous one, and Perrie is the WildCard (in every sense of the word- her team mates once called her the baby of the group, because she is the youngest.).

* UnderdogsNeverLose: At the beginning of their season, everybody assumed that Little Mix would go the way of most girl bands on the show and lose out almost immediately. However, as the season went on, they kept getting better and better, which ultimately led to their increased support and eventual victory.

** Whilst nowhere near One Direction or The Spice Girls in level of success, LM are the only other UK X Factor alumnus and UK girl group respectively to have 3 top 20 albums (with top 10 pure sales) in the US.

** Whilst nowhere near One Direction or The Spice Girls in level of success, LM are the only other UK X Factor alumnus and UK girl group respectively to have 3 top 20 albums (with top 10 pure sales) in the US. The fourth album narrowly missed the top 20, but was 11th on digital sales, with LM having not visited the US to promote the album at all at that point, and in any case, made LM only the second girl group to have all their first 4 albums in the US top 40, after TLC.
