Little Mix's cover version of Cameo's "Word Up" debuted at No. 6 in the U.K. for the week ending March 29, 2014, according to the Official Charts Company. Meanwhile, Little Mix plans to return to the U.S. for a few select concerts in 2014: at Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie, Texas, on Sept. 16 and at Comerica Theatre in Phoenix on Sept. 19.

As previously reported, Little Mix did a cover version of Cameo's "Word Up" as the official 2014 single for Sport Relief, an annual U.K. charity event that is televised in the U.K. on BBC One.

Little Mix's "Word Up" was released in the U.K. and Ireland on March 16, 2014. Sport Relief 2014 took place from March 21 to March 23. In January 2014, Little Mix was in Liberia as part of a Sport Relief charity promotion.

Little Mix performed "Word Up" on "Sport Relief" on March 21, 2014 and on "The National Lottery" on March 22, 2014. Both shows were televised in the U.K. on BBC One.

In 2011, Little Mix became the first group to win on "The X Factor" U.K.

Little Mix's second album, "Salute," debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 chart in the United States.

As previously reported, "Salute" was released in the U.S. and Canada on Feb. 4, 2014, and debuted at No. 1 on iTunes in the U.S. and No. 2 on iTunes in Canada.

Little Mix performed "Move" (the first single from "Salute") on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Feb. 4, 2014, and on "The Wendy Williams Show" on Feb. 6, 2014.

"Move" was a No. 3 hit in the U.K. in 2013, but the single flopped in the U.S., where "Move" failed to make it on Billboard's Hot 100 chart. Little Mix also performed "Move" on "The X Factor" U.S. in 2013.

Little Mix's first album, "DNA," was a Top 10 hit in several countries.

Little Mix's second album, "Salute," also hit the Top 10 hit in several countries when it was released in 2013. Little Mix was the opening act on select dates of Demi Lovato's "Neon Lights" 2014 North American tour. Little Mix is headlining a U.K. tour in May and June 2014.

On Jan. 21, 2014, Little Mix went to Japan to promote "Salute." Little Mix returns to Japan for a performance at the Summer Sonic Festival on Aug. 16, 2014.
