Blessed Beatz Live

Little Mix opened the afternoon at BBC Big Weekend on Sunday 26 May to thousands in the audience.

Opening their set with Salute the crowd went wild.  Little Mix said whilst performing, "we were unsure of been the first act if you were going to be quiet but you haven't", and going on to say that "it's always the best audiences up north".

They followed it up with getting the audience to join in and have a competition between the females and males, with the females definitely sounding the louder.

Ending their set they played some of their new track that is coming soon.  Head over to our Facebook page facebook.com/cvfmradio for more live videos and pictures from the weekend.
