Little Mix have announced their very first headline tour of the US!

Jade Thirlwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jesy Nelson and Perrie Edwards' career has been going from strength to strength overseas, and today's exciting news just shows how far they've come since X Factor.

Little Mix will return to the US in September for their first headline tour. So far, only dates in Texas, Arizona and Connecticut have been confirmed, with further cities to follow.

It's a huge step for the girls, who've just returned from America where they supported Demi Lovato on her 'Neon Lights Tour'.

From support act to headliner in a month. Well done!

Cracking the massive US market has always been notoriously hard, with several high-profile UK artists unable to make the transition, so thumbs up to Little Mix!

Little Mix – who won X Factor's eighth series two years ago – now join a very small, exclusive group of X Factor stars who managed to find success in the US. The others include One Direction (obvs!) and Cher Lloyd, who has taken over from Little Mix as the support act on Demi's tour.

Congratulations, girls!

Meanwhile, the band flew back to the UK from Demi's tour last week to appear on BBC's Sport Relief 2014, performing the fundraiser's official song, 'Word Up'.
