They may have attended the MTV Video Music Awards at the Staples Center but were not lucky enough to bag a performance spot.

But The Saturdays got their big break at a post-party bash after the awards show.

The five-piece girl group stepped out in skimpy summer outfits for the performance at the One Night in Los Angeles benefit.

Rochelle Humes, Vanessa White, Una
Healy, Mollie King and Frankie Sandford all put their pins on parade for
the bash in teeny-tiny shorts.

Vanessa bucked the trend in a dress and leather jacket but still had her legs on show.

Curiously instead of showing off their skin, all five of the girls had shiny tights on to perform.

slither of flesh between her shorts and her crop top on show.

While the girls often spend lots of time in America this if their first ever gig in the U.S.

The girls also made their U.S. red carpet debut last night as they joined dozens of stars at the MTV Video Music Awards at the Staples Center.

Four member of the girl group opted for white ensembles, while Una Healy added a splash of colour in a pretty lemon dress.

In the limousine on the way to Staples Center, Rochelle, 23, tweeted a photo of herself, writing: 'Red carpet here we goo #unitedsatsof America #satsvmas.'

Following the awards, the five-piece were scheduled to perform at blogger Perez Hilton's after-party at the Belasco Theater.

Una wrote on her Twitter: 'So

EVER U.S performance at @PerezHilton after party! #excited #VMA.'

Although
Rochelle was excited to be attending the VMAs, it meant she was missing
out on her new husband Marvin Humes's gig in London.

Marvin and his JLS bandmates were performing a one-off concert at the iTunes Festival in London, which was broadcast on 4Music.

While she was getting ready, Rochelle managed to watch the gig live over the internet.

She posted a photo of herself playing with Una's daughter Aoife watching her husband on a laptop.

She wrote: 'Just about to leave for #VMAs catching up with uncle marv @jls official iTunes fest :).'

The
couple have been wed for six weeks, but have only spent a week of
married life together because Rochelle flew to the U.S. shortly after
their big day.
