VIDEO: North Staffordshire girl band Mini Mix aim for Britain Does Variety final
TALENTED girl band Mini Mix are hoping to win over the judges to make it through to the finals of a national talent show.
The youngsters have been singing and dancing since they were just two years old and already have numerous performances under their belt since forming last year.
And now they hope their quirky pop tunes and tight-knit routines will see them secure a place in the grand final of Britain Does Variety.
The four-piece – made up of Eleanor Meredith, aged 10, from Newcastle, Taylor Ford, aged nine, from Birches Head, Sophie Clough, aged 11, and 10-year-old Jessica Walters, both from Bucknall – are now fine-tuning their performance before they go head-to-head with 20 others acts from across the region.

They qualified after a nerve wracking audition two weeks ago, at the Sunshine Studios in Manchester two weeks ago.
They are now appealing for their fans from across North Staffordshire to support them in the audience next month.
Sophie's proud mum Amanda Clough, aged 46, said: "They have entered various competitions and are gaining confidence all the time.
"They are so excited. It's a massive achievement, they are all so hard working and love it."
The girls will sing a medley of songs by pop stars Taylor Swift and Rihanna, boy band One Direction and their favourite idols Little Mix.
Amanda added: "What they do for their age is fantastic and the dedication they show is commendable."
Taylor said: "We like Little Mix but we are different to them.
"If we won I would scream, it would mean everything."
The girls already proved how talented they were when they made it through to the final of Stoke's Top Talent at the Regent theatre in Hanley by winning The Sentinel public vote.
Eleanor said that she would be asking her school friends to support them on their road to stardom.
She said: "Last time my teacher put it on the white board and made me go to the front of the class."
Taylor's mum Rebecca Ford, a dance teacher at the Sneyd Green-based Angela Beardmore School of Dance, has been given the job of choreographing the girls' energetic routines.
The 34-year-old, of Elgar Crescent, Birches Head, said: "I have helped them with the routine but they have chosen the songs themselves.
"They got more than 500 votes and we sold 80 tickets within hours for the competition in Stoke-on-Trent but we really need to get as much support as possible because this time it is in Manchester."
If Mini Mix get through the regional finals, they will perform on a stage in the West End to battle it out to be the winners.
The event will take place at Manchester's Royal Northern College of Music, Oxford Road, on April 20 from 1pm.
