Jade Thirlwall was helping a “sick and anxious” fan who was struggling in the crowd at a Little Mix concert in Dublin on Tuesday night after the band kicked off their latest tour, Confetti.
The singer, 29, was performing at the 3Arena alongside bandmates Perrie Edwards, 28, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 30, when she quit after seeing a girl fight in the crowd.
Videos posted by fan accounts on Twitter showed the trio singing Only You before Jade stopped to tell the crowd not to jump so the paramedics could reach the fan.
She told the crowd: “I just want everyone in this area to shut up and have this girl sorted out so she’s okay.”
Jade told the rest of the audience that they could dance along, commenting, “Everyone else can jump.” She was later seen waving to the area where the fan had been.
It’s unclear what was going on, although other attendees are said to have reported that she looked “sick and scared” as the crowd jumped to the song’s beat DublinLive.
A fan who shared footage of the moment on his @perriefthes account wrote: “Jade asked some people to keep quiet during Only You because a girl in the crowd was in trouble.”

The Confetti Tour kicked off last week at the SSE Arena in Belfast, with the band set to perform one more gig in Dublin tonight before heading out to parts of England, Wales and Scotland.
They will perform in Newcastle, Liverpool and Sheffield over the next week before visiting Birmingham, Glasgow, Leeds, Cardiff, Manchester, Nottingham and London.
The tour, which follows the release of their sixth studio album Confetti two years ago, was originally scheduled for 2021 but was postponed due to Covid.

The band said in a statement at the time they were “so sad” to announce that the tour had been postponed and dates had been pushed back due to concerns about the pandemic.
Little Mix said in a social media post, “Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we must prioritize the safety of our fans and crew and help stop the spread.”
“You know how much we love to be out and about performing every night for all of you. […] We can’t wait to see you guys when it’s safe,” they said to their fans.
