** 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.

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 4 albums in the US top 30.

They have achieved several firsts: First girlgroup in X Factor top 5, first group to win X Factor, first UK no 1 by any girlgroup since Girls Aloud (Saturdays got their first no 1 later), first X Factor winner to release an original single in summer, first UK girlgroup 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 girlgroup ''EVER'' to go straight into the top 5 in the US with its debut album. They have also got hundreds of millions of youtube views. LM have 6 songs with at least 90 million views as of September 2016.

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 girlgroup in USA EVER in terms of chart placings - as well as THE first girlgroup ever to have their first 3 albums start in the top 15!). In UK, it even outsold 1D's final album before their haitus! 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.

* 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...

* 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.

* UnderdogsNeverLose: At the beginning of their season, everybody assumed that Little Mix would go the way of most girlbands 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.

* {{Discontinuity}} : The cover of Cannonball, one of the least successful XF 'winners' songs, was disowned by LM, and not included on their albums, or any gigs at all, until fans in Paris in 2016 sang the song to LM at the start of the girls' encore.
** Love Me or leave me was never used in the GW World tour at all, whilst some songs, such as ADIDAS, and using British rapper Lethal Bizzle in a mash up, were not used for overseas gigs.
