Early Life

Perrie Louise Edwards, is from South Shields, Tyne and Wear. Born to mother Debbie Duffie and father Alexander Edwards, she has an older brother, Jonnie. Her parents are both singers. Her dad Alex is in an unsigned band called Alexander’s Palace. Her mum Debbie was a singer. She didn’t have any singing ambitions until fairly recently. She said: "I thought I was just a normal singer. I did a few shows at school but was always at the back. I never had the confidence to do it well. Now, with these girls, everything is working." Before entering The X Factor, Perrie was planning to start a performing arts degree.

Career

X

The X Factor (2011)

Perrie sang You Oughta Know by Alanis Morisette during her first audition in Glasgow and received praise from Kelly Rowland, who described her voice as “Crazy, yo!” Tulisa wasn’t as complimentary about Perrie’s audition saying that she liked her, but wasn’t madly in love with her. Louis didn’t “get” Perrie’s audition at all, prompting Kelly to ask Louis “what didn’t you get?”. She successfully passed to the other round, but failed to make it past bootcamp's first challenge. However, the judges decided to give her another chance, and to be part of the Groups category. They put her in the four-member female band called "Faux Pas" with Jesy Nelson. However, the group failed to make it through to the judges' houses. A later decision saw two members from the group, Nelson and Edwards, being called back to form the four-piece group "Rhythmix", along with Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall, this sending them through to the judges' houses. The band decided to change their name, due to difficulties with an organization with the same name, to "Little Mix". On 11 December, Little Mix were announced as the winners, making them the first ever group to win the show.

DNA (2012—present)

Following The X Factor, the girls signed a record contract with Sony Music subsidiary Syco Music. They said through a live stream via Twitcam that their debut single will be called "Wings". Little Mix announced their debut album in September 2012 called DNA, which released on 19 November 2012. They later published lyrics videos and official music videos of their other singles, "DNA", "Change Your Life", and "How Ya Doin'?".

“We were like new kids at first, we didn’t know each other. It wasn’t until we went to my house that we just clicked. It was instant. We went shopping, and we stayed up every night watching movies, eating food, rehearsing, singing. It was like being at camp with your best friends. We had such a laugh.”

—Perrie Edwards

“I have a hippie-boho style, with long skirts and flowery headbands, then a rocker side with leather jackets and biker boots. For daytime, I love a flowy skirt with a crop top and sandals, then for night a long dress with a nice belt and lots of silver jewelry.”
