After En Vogue... I think possibly. I haven't heard female harmonies that good for a while.

No way, both the Sugababes and The Saturdays' harmonies are superior. Checking out their live lounges will show that.

Yep.

BY FAR the best girlgroup the UK has had in years!

Controversial statement lol

They improved so much since XF...considering their voices are very different. I remember during XF everyone said Perrie was the strongest and the others were average
...but right now Jade is the strongest imo.

Well those groups are by no means bad, but Little Mix are just so good getting their voices in sync with each other.

I personally think Perrie is still the strongest singer but Jade is very very good, and in the video I posted she conveys so much emotion with her voice.

The Saturdays harmonies are so weak Little Mix harmonies are much stronger imo.

This is a big statement but in terms of UK girl groups out atm I would say either Little Mix or Stooshe are the best vocally I think Stooshe are better indiviual singers but Little Mix's have tighter harmonies.

Stooshe are all far stronger vocalists individually

I would agree that they are the best female vocal group around at the moment and the best group to come out of the X Factor. They harmonise their voices really well and yet individually they can all sing. That's rare in any pop band these days.

Yeah, I truley believe that, their performance of Winter Wonderland from the live lounge was fantastic, beautiful harmonies.

Thats only one performance though IMO all of the Sats Live Lounges have been good. I loved when they did the IDAD/Buzzin mash last year!

I could name lots of great Little Mix peformances not just one tho

Agree with this although little mixs voices are getting stronget, If you compare their performance of Big girls dont cry at judges houses to that sbtv performance, there is a huge difference.

I think harmony wise Little Mix could compete with any of the groups mentioned, certainly superior to The Saturdays and Girls Aloud.

I would like to see them put a simple acoustic or accapella song on the next album.

I agree with this statement completely. They outsang GA at Children in Need. It was actually embarrassing.

I certainly won't say they are the best female vocal group after En Vogue (even though I'm a fan), but they are definitely one of the best we've had in the UK. Personally I think LM and Stooshe are the strongest female vocal groups that's around atm, both groups have tight harmonies and individually are all good singers.

As for who's the best vocalist in the group, I think Perrie is still the strongest, but she's been so hit and miss lately (but that might have something to do with her tonsils). In terms of versatility I think Jade is the most versatile, and has the most pleasant recording voice. Maybe she can do a Zayn and become the best vocalist in the group in the near future, who knows.

Girls Aloud are very good actually bar Cheryl...vocally. Nadine, Sarah and Nicola are very good singers and Kim is much better than she started. Cheryl's not as good as she should be but it doesn't really matter as her success has shown.

I admit Little Mix where VERY good on CIN with Change Your Life - a great song. But....

Their album quite literally stinks sorry. I tried listening to it and bar from the first 3 songs i was very impressed, and with Girls Aloud that never happened. They make the best Girl band albums period. Even the Saturdays make better albums than LM. Maybe its vocally good...but most of it was poor.

I think that's down to personal taste tbh. Personally I've never liked any the Sats songs and the only GA songs I've liked are The Promise and Something New. I prefer the old school sound that LM and Stooshe are aiming for, so to me they produce (much) better albums than GA and the Sats.

That's definitely one of their best vocals to date! They material to show harmonies off imo.

I agree about Stooshe they can really sing too.

The thing with Cheryl though although she does not have the best voice she is a great dancer/performer and she has that star quality that the other girls in Girls aloud don't have I think she shines more when she is solo.
