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.

Mother-of-one Una showed off her amazing abdominals teaming a pair of tiny denim shorts with a cropped leather top.

Rochelle also displayed her super toned stomach while Frankie left a little 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.

Both Rochelle Humes and Vanessa White optedf for mullet-style dresses, while Frankie Sandford opted for a textured white shift dress.

Mollie King, 25, opted for a trendy sheer two layered skirt, with net detailing at the top.

Meanwhile, Una, 30, went for a slightly different colour in her asymmetrical ruched mini dress.

After arriving, an excited Mollie tweeted: 'Just walked in - Oh my goodness CANNOT believe we're here!'

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 excited to attend the VMA's this evening!! and then on to do our first 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.

TO ANSWER TO THIS : "Again poor old Vanessa gets barely a mention and no individual pic of her like the rest of the group gets. Is she considered hordendously ugly? She seems to get ignored in every story about this group. Maybe it's just me but I think she's actually really pretty and more importantly has the finest voice and most expansive vocal range of the lot of them. WIthout her input they would struggle to but out a single track, even taking in to account the miracals possible with a modern recording studio and autotune. Every "pop stars" best friend!" Well, The Saturdays have tracks that don't feature her at all or not so much. She has also been missing for some gigs and the girls did just fine without her ! She has a good RnB voice, but so does Rochelle.

You have to think with Fuller and Cowell getting in on the American music scene and dominated it, you know they will flood what was once an amazing music charts and with so much history in music, which tacky brit acts we do not want over here or can only appreciate under the age of 16. Once upon a time, a music company would not have even wasted time buying a group like this plane tickets to America.
