'X Factor' hopefuls Rhythmix want to be as successful as the Spice Girls
Rhythmix want to be as successful as the Spice Girls.
The four-piece girl band - made up of Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall - aren't aiming for a "sexy" vibe, and are hoping their individual personalities will come across in a similar way to the 'Wannabe' hitmakers.
Jesy told BANG Showbiz: "We want other girls to feel like they can approach us and be our friend. We don't want to be threatening at all. The way we dress - we're cool, not sexy.
"And we've each got our own little individual thing we bring to the group. We want to be like a modern version of the Spice Girls, so girls can relate to each and every one of us."
The 'X Factor' hopefuls - who were dubbed the "best girl band" the ITV1 show has ever seen by head judge Gary Barlow on last week's show - also praised their mentor Tulisa Contostavlos for understanding their "swagger".
Jesy added: "Tulisa is so cool as a mentor. She's so real. She completely understands everything we're about and our swagger and everything.
"We appreciate the fact that she asks us what we want to do, rather than telling us what to do."
