UK all-girl pop band Little Mix landed in the States this week to promote the release of their debut album, DNA, which has been a big hit overseas with hit singles “Wings” and “Cannonball.” Band members Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall—who won in the 2011 season of X Factor UK—greeted fans at New Jersey’s Garden State Plaza for their first-ever U.S. album signing and they couldn’t have been happier with the turnout. “I had an absolute blast today! The signing was amazing, thank you to everyone who came down! We love our little mixers!,” Perrie Edwards tweeted, with Jade Thirlwall adding, “Thank you so much to all the New Jersey mixers amazing first album signing here in America! Love you lots like jelly tots.” Given the recent success of fellow X Factor alums Cher Lloyd and One Direction, we expect great things to come for Little Mix.
