X Factor 2011: Rhythmix Change Their Name To…

Tulisa’s girl group, Rhythmix, have changed their name.

A statement from The X Factor earlier this week read: “At the request of the charity Rhythmix, the members of the girl group Rhythmix have decided to change their name, a decision which has the support of Syco and TalkbackTHAMES.

The girls, Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirwell and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, announced their new name on Twitter today, saying: “We’re really excited to announce that as of now our new name is Little Mix!

“We came up with this name with Tulisa, and we love it-hope our Little Mixers like it too!”

“When we came up with the name Rhythmix, we had no idea that there was a charity with the same name. We decided to change our name to Little Mix as we do not want to cause any problems for the charity, and we’re happy that this has now been resolved. We’re the same girls as we’ve always been and we want to thank all of our fans for their continued support of us.

“We came up with some ideas for our new name which we discussed with Tulisa and she had some ideas too. We all agreed on Little Mix as it just felt right. We’re so excited to perform on Saturday and hope everyone is impressed with what we do.”

Little Mix are currently second favourite to be booted off the X Factor this weekend.
