The British girl group, Little Mix, made its live debut of "Secret Love Song" featuring Jason Derulo at Capital FM's Jingle Bell Ball on Saturday Dec. 5, soon after confirming it as the band's next UK single.
The Jingle Bell Ball is the two day pop music festival hosted in London's O2 arena with featured performances on Saturday from Coldplay and David Guetta as well as performances from Justin Bieber, Nick Jonas, Calvin Harris and more on Sunday.
The girl-group's big surprise song came after six-song set that included performances of "Salute" kicking things off and continuing through to "Move," "Wings," "Love Me Like You" and "Black Magic."
Derulo was also performing during the night, so it was an easily foreseeable collaboration as the band looks to widely promote the song. Shortly after they left the stage, it was confirmed on Twitter that "Secret Love Song" will be the band's newest UK and Ireland single with a music video to be released "very soon."
The performance itself was an elegant event with the band dressed up in glimmering outfits showing off their figures. More so than other songs in their catalog, "Secret Love Song" is more of a ballad, which had the band lined up stoically on center stage, trading versus until Derulo came to knock the house down.
Derulo isn't much older than the girls, but the size difference and Little Mix's teen pop vibe, made him look massive standing next to the women on stage. It was also a very subdued performance for the American pop star, whose live performances generally include a lot of dancing.
All the performers sounded great on a song that really shows off each of the members' vocal prowess. It was Jesy Nelson's belting high note in the bridge that really stole the show, creating the song's emotional climax.
