X Factor darlings Little Mix performed a touching tribute to Whitney Houston for BBC Radio One's Live Lounge.

The four members, backed by a mammoth gospel choir, sang a mash up of Jason Derulo’s "Want To Want Me" and Houston’s "I Wanna Dance With Somebody". 

Listen to the cover below.

Fans of the band have taken to Twitter to praise the cover, calling it “brilliant” and the “best cover they’ve ever done”.

In other Little Mix news, the group are heading for a third week at number one with their song “Black Magic”, but at the midweek stage are currently fending off competition from Sigma and Ella Henderson’s “Glitterball”.

In much sadder news, Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown died earlier this week aged 22.

A representative for the Houston family said Bobbi Kristina passed away surrounded by her family, seven months after being found unresponsive in a bath tub at the home she shared with her boyfriend Nick Gordon, who she referred to as her husband, in Atlanta.
