Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards should be about the kids, but parents are not too happy about Little Mix’s great, but too sexy performance.
British girl group Little Mix has steadily climbed the fame ladder since their victory in The X Factor UK in 2011 and this time, they add yet another accolade from the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards (KCA) in their long list of awards. Little Mix takes home the Favorite Global Music Star Award gong at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in Los Angeles, which BBC reported is their first KCA. Prior to this global act award, Little Mix was first nominated at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards for Favorite UK Band in 2012, which then went to One Direction.
Little Mix fans all over the world took to social media their celebration about Little Mix’s first KCA. In fact, a lot of people found the award well-deserved as Little Mix takes to the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards stage a high-tempo dance routine of two of their hit songs, “Shout Out To My Ex” and “Touch.”

But alongside the many praises that Little Mix has gotten for their explosive performance at the Kids Choice Awards, a couple of people are unhappy that a girl group who can make music videos that are too sexual for their market can win a children-centric awards.
Talking to the Mirror via the Sun, singer Faye Tozer from the 90s band Steps says that although his son is a fan of Little Mix, he sometimes would get uncomfortable watching their music videos, which can get too sexy.
“Their new video is too raunchy for my little boy. My little boy gets embarrassed, their new video is too raunchy for him to handle.”
Tozer also alludes to how Little Mix isn’t as family friendly as other bands, which is a little problematic since this kind of group can win in Nickelodeon’s Kids Choice Awards.
“I’m glad that we are from a band which is so family friendly.”
If you’ve previously heard Little Mix’s “Shout Out To My Ex” and “Touch,” you’ll notice that they slightly tweaked the lyrics for their kid-friendly crowd at the Kids Choice Awards. But then again, is tweaking the lyrics like that change the fact that Little Mix isn’t as family-friendly as some parents would like them to be?
In fact, the two of the Little Mix members Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirwall, and Leigh-Ann Pinnock came into the Nickelodeon’s Kids Choice Awards in rather skimpy clothes (guess which two we found too sexy for our kids).
But Little Mix couldn’t care less about the negative comments about their group and took their happiness about their first Kids Choice Award win to social media and shared their appreciation with their fans.
