“A week before the X-Factor audition, I was thinking, ‘What if I don’t get along with the girls?’ I just wasn’t sure about it at all. But after being with them, they’re just incredible. I absolutely love them to bits. There’s no diva in the group, and I mean that. We’re all really relaxed and we just work.”

—Leigh-Anne

“Always take lip balm! When we get nervous, especially when we perform, we get dry lips.”

—Leigh-Anne

“I’m absolutely in love with partying! My perfect girls’ night would start off with all of the girls coming to my place, getting ready together, helping each other with makeup and hair. Then we’d go out and dance the night away.”

—Leigh-Anne

“I love colorful things, like 'snapback' hats. It’s a hat that’s like a cap with the little things that pop on the back. That’s my logo. My typical outfit is skinny jeans with an army jacket or a big denim jacket with a snapback.”

—Leigh-Anne
