Mixed group Jasper Blue believe that being eliminated first from Little Mix: The Search has been a ‘blessing in disguise’.
The band – consisting of Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke’s body double Rosie Mac, Melina Halpin, Liam McHugh and Jordan Smithy – failed to impress the Shout Out To My Ex stars in the first live show which aired last weekend.
They found themselves in the bottom two, with the judges choosing to save Melladaze after a final performance.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk just days after their elimination, the band expressed their disappointment at being booted from the competition, but have teased ‘exciting’ things ahead.
‘It was so devastating getting kicked off but we did sing for our lives on the night,’ Jordan began. ‘But I feel like it’s a blessing in disguise, that’s the best way to put it.

‘I feel like leaving on the first week has given us more time to go home, to just sit down and get ready for what the future brings.’
‘Obviously, it was gutting, but the whole evening was a lot of fun,’ Liam chipped in.

‘I feel like we got to perform two really different songs that showed two very different sides to us.
‘I just loved being on stage with the guys, and I’d be lying if I said leaving was part of the plan, but we left our heart on that stage.’
Melina went on to add that she’s ‘grateful for the whole experience’ what for the show has given her.
‘This opportunity has meant I met my band and I never thought a little girl from Liverpool could end up working and singing with Little Mix,’ she told us.
‘The whole experience was so surreal as it was like all of my dreams coming true before my eyes.’
Jasper Blue’s journey on the talent show may have come to an end, but we have a feeling it won’t be the last we hear from them.
Melina continued: ‘We have a couple of things lined up, we will be sharing some exciting news over the next few days and together we are just progressing with music.’
‘It still hasn’t sunk in that it’s all happened,’ Jordan added. ‘Going back home living my normal life and back to reality, but we will be making more music and doing what we love.’
The live shows for The Search will continue tonight, where the five remaining bands will fight to save their spot in the competition.
Little Mix are now left with the boyband New Priority, girl vocal group Nostalia, girl dance group Melladaze, RnB and Hip Hop group YChange, and live instrumental band Since September.
Little Mix The Search continues next Saturday on BBC One.
