Little Mix sings through tears in emotional final show before halftime

The emotional members of Little Mix struggled to sing through tears in their final performance before “taking a break” from the band.

Singer Perrie Edwards, who said she had a “constant lump” in her throat, began crying just minutes after the show.

Long stretches of “Between Us” fell silent as Edwards, along with bandmates Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, seemed to give up, turning their microphones toward the audience.

Edwards had asked the crowd at London’s O2 for help before starting the song.

“It’s about our journey, it’s about our love for each other, and we never got through it without crying,” she said.

“Can you help us sing the next one?”

The three now intend to focus on solo projects after “an incredible 10 years” together, though they insist Little Mix is ​​not breaking up.

None of them mentioned Jesy Nelson, a founding member of the group who left in 2020 after a nervous breakdown left her in the hospital.

Nelson revealed in October last year that his former bandmates were not spoken to, but added that “there was no bad blood on my part.”

The group seemed to enjoy being in front of an audience after two years in lockdown, with Pinnock stating, “Being back on this stage is what we do it for.”

Thanking the crowd, some of whom were also in tears, Edwards said in a broken voice: “Each of you have had a huge impact on our lives and we wouldn’t be here right now if it wasn’t for you. .

“I need to get my shit in order, I’m so sorry.”

He then went on to introduce the band’s next song: “Happiness”.
