Little Mix Literally Cast a Spell During ‘Black Magic’ Performance

by | PopCrush

Little Mix have proven they can do wonders with existing spell books, but their own brand of witchcraft has proven to be equally magical.

The four-piece band, who are gearing up for the release of their third album, Get Weird, recently took their latest single, “Black Magic” to KISS FM UK’s Secret Sessions series, and in a video of the performance uploaded to YouTube Tuesday (July 28), the ladies join together like a well-dressed coven to deliver a positively mystical show. If only they had a few pointed hats…

At the beginning of the set, member Leigh-Anne Pinnock guides an enchanted audience through a spell: “Repeat after me: When all is lost, and love is tragic, cast a spell, it’s called black magic,” she instructs before the eager crowd recites each line back. Suddenly, the lights flicker, the room goes dark and eerie, shrill voices begin to reverberate through the theater. The ladies join center stage as if a cauldron’s set between them, raise their arms in unison and continue to chant Leigh-Anne’s incantation until the “Black Magic” track kicks in, and it’s finally time for some music.

Unsurprisingly, the song—which has been Number 1 in the UK for three weeks, according to Digital Spy—proves to be as powerful as Dumbledore’s wand. Elphaba could neverrrr.
