Little Mix's LM5 dropped in November, and the British girl group kept the momentum going strong with a rousing live rendition of "Woman Like Me" at the 2019 Brit Awards on Wednesday (Feb. 20).

The quartet performed the lead single from their fifth studio album, and it came to life alongside a swaggering choreo team, which multiplied from eight members to many, many more once the reggae-tinged pop song swung into its second half. Big-stage, high-pressure performances are routine at this point for Little Mix, and this turn at London's O2 arena was no exception.

The one variation came with their supporting artist. Nicki Minaj -- the featured artist on the studio version -- was not able to appear, but South London-born rapper Ms Banks emerged in her place alongside Little Mix. It was a fitting swap; Ms Banks is a friend of Minaj's who's recently hinted at a collaboration with her in the near future.

A substantial hit in Little Mix's homeland, "Woman Like Me" peaked at No. 2 on the Official U.K. Singles Chart.

Later on in the ceremony, "Woman Like Me" took home the prize for best artist video of the year, marking Little Mix's second Brit Award to date. They were also nominated this year in the British group category, losing to The 1975.
