After completing a degree in performing arts at Sylvia Youth Drama School, Nelson worked as a barmaid in the town of Dagenham. She then went on to audition for The X Factor with her team Little Mix, which consisted of 4 members, now 3 when Nelson left.
Eventually, her team won season 8 of The X Factor, and her career took off. Nelson said in an interview that she worked as a child actor in the 2002 romantic comedy films “About a Boy” and “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.”
After winning The X Factor, she signed a record deal with British company Syco Music. Nelson went on to release 6 back-to-back albums called DNA, Salute, Get Weird, Glory Days, LM5 and Confetti, all of which did well. At the end of 2022, Nielsen left Little Mix due to mental issues and decided to become a solo artist.

In October 2021, Nielsen hit the stage with her debut solo single Boyz, which also featured rapper Nicki Minaj.
