A new singing competition TV series kicked off last night and it's already proving a hit.
'Little Mix The Search' debuted on BBC One.
The format sees the titular pop band (including Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock) search for the next global singing sensation.
Whoever they pick gets to tour with them.
Having united on 'X Factor' and dominated the charts, they're drawing from their knowledge of reality TV and the music industry to find fresh talent.
The show is after six groups: a Boy Band, a Girl Dance Group, a Girl Vocal Group, a Mixed Group, a Vocal & Instrument Group and a Rap R&B Group.
Last night saw Little Mix form a boy band.
Viewers at home were loving the singers as well as the show's format.
Check out some of the Twitter reactions here.
The girl band's die-hard fans were of course singing their praises the loudest:

That was amazing? A unique format, intimate & hilarious auditions, and the mentoring from @LittleMix which is by far the most valuable and honest form ANY talent judges - just all worked together so perfectly!! I can't wait to see what other bands they make 👏🏼 #LittleMixTheSearch pic.twitter.com/q6ShRzsaDB

Jesy didn't lie when she said this is one of the best things we're gonna watch on tv. It's NOTHING like the other talent shows. It's unique and genuine, the contestants are talented af and we had to see Little Mix being Little Mix. I can't wait for tomorrow!!!#LittleMixTheSearch

So I actually loved Little Mix's new talent show, I think it's got a lot of what's been lacking in talent contests + the girls have the ideal charisma to be hosts/judges https://t.co/Cv6sQpNxij #LittleMixTheSearch

can we just talk about how the girls get straight into the auditions, no messing around, no sob stories, no putting ppl through who sent in audition tapes to audition infornt of them who are just funny/entertaining. they are taking it seriously @LittleMix #LittleMixTheSearch
