Initially surpassing the achievements of One Direction and JLS by becoming the first group to win the original U.K. version of The X Factor, Little Mix were one of the few success stories to emerge from the competition's underperforming and controversial eighth season. Their debut single, a rendition of Damien Rice's "Cannonball," topped the U.K. pop chart. Subsequent album DNA (2012), which featured a second number one hit in "Wings," became the highest U.K. charting debut album ever by a British female group. Their sophomore album, Salute (2013), showcased a more mature, R&B-infused direction. "Black Magic," the first single from third album Get Weird (2015), became the group's third U.K. number one in 2015. ~ Jon O'Brien
