Jesy Nelson Misses ‘Little Mix: The Search’ Final & MTV EMAs Due to Illness

Little Mix’s The Search final and their scheduled appearance at the MTV Europe Music Awards will go on without Jesy Nelson, who is ill.

“We’re so sad Jesy won’t be able to join us tonight, but we have such an amazing show in store for you all,” the group tweeted before the BBC One program aired on Saturday (Nov. 7). (Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock still performed “Secret Love Song,” which can be seen below.)

A statement on social media from publicist Simon Jones had stated the same, and said that Nelson would also not be able to take part in Sunday night’s awards show.

“Jesy is unwell and will not be appearing on tonight’s final of Little Mix The Search. She will also not be hosting or performing at tomorrow’s MTV EMAs,” the message said.

Little Mix — who just released their new studio album, Confetti — are set to host and perform at the 2020 MTV EMAs.
