Little Mix’s first ever performance on Strictly Come Dancing was met with criticism tonight as viewers complained about their "awful" vocals.
Despite taking part in their sexiest routine yet as they got up close and personal with the female pros, fans were distracted by their singing.
Flocking to Twitter, viewers didn’t hold back.
One tweeted: "Little Mix are making my ears bleed #strictly."
While another commented: "Can’t work out if the microphones are/ sound is poor in the #Strictly studio or if #LittleMix are just really weak singers. #Confused #PoorSoundOrPoorPerformance."
A third wrote: "How awful was that little mix performance on #strictly."

- Little Mix’s sexiest performance yet in powerful Strictly all-female dance
Performing for the first time ever on Strictly this evening, Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock promoted their ‘girl power’ message with an all-female crew.
They were joined by an all-female backing band and Strictly professionals including Katya Jones and Luba Mushtuk.
Adorned in black, beige and red lipstick, the band belted out their latest single Woman Like Me for this year’s semi-finals.
While Leigh-Anne showed off her toned legs and a peak of her black bra in a short trench coat-style dress, Jade looked stunning in her black playsuit and matching mesh ankle boots.

Jesy accentuated her curves in a corset-style strap top and flared trousers while Perrie went for a unique bronze and black bodysuit.
Their appearance on the BBC show comes after the group snubbed performing on The X Factor this year.
The group split from Simon Cowell’s record label just days before the release of their fifth album LM5.
They have moved to label RCA, which is part of the wider Sony Group, just like Syco.

The group had reportedly grown frustrated with Cowell’s label over the last few months and to have had some fallouts during the making of their new record.
The Sun claimed that the girls confronted the X Factor boss in a strongly-worded email, raising the issues they had with his label.
A bigger row is then said to have erupted between the label and the girls’ management company Modest.
Cowell is said to have then decided to cut ties with all of the company’s artists, which also include last year’s X Factor winners Rak-Su.
