Biography

Fifth Harmony (formed 2012)

Fifth Harmony is an American girl group consisting of the following singers: Ally Brooke Hernandez, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane Hansen, Camila Cabello, and Lauren Jauregui. They are best known for their singles 'Worth It' and 'Sledgehammer'. They are signed in a joint deal with Simon Cowell's label Syno Music and L.A Reid's label Epic Records. Their sales figures have led many to call them one of the most successful alumni from the X Factor franchise. Fifth Harmony have named artists such as Demi Lovato and Katy Perry as their musical inspirations. 

Formation: The group came together through the second season of the X Factor USA after finishing in third place on the show. Each of the five singers originally entered the competition as soloists, but after failing to progress to the Judges' Houses stage of the competition they accepted the offer to form a group organised by Simon Cowell at the earlier Bootcamp stage. Now qualified to move forward to the Judges' Houses under the 'groups' category, they named themselves LYLAS (Love You Like a Sister) before changing their name to 1432 before the live shows. Simon Cowell later announced that the group's new name would be decided by the viewers online - consequently the public choice of 'Fifth Harmony' was chosen. Despite receiving praise for many of their performances on the show, the group didn't receive enough votes to progress into the final and finished in 3rd place towards the end of December 2012. 

A month after the X Factor season had finished Fifth Harmony were voted as the 'Next Pop Superstar of 2013' by Popdust Magazine. The group stayed together and began recording and uploading covers of popular songs on YouTube. These videos gathered a lot of attention, particularly from some of the artists that were covered such as Ed Sheeran, Ariana Grande and Mikky Ekko who praised them for their work. The group also featured on Boyce Avenue's 2013 Cover Collaborations EP. 

Musical Career: Fifth Harmony released their debut single 'Miss Movin' On' in 2013, which reached number 76 on the US Billboard 100, was certified Gold by the RIAA and became nominated for  a Teen Choice Award for Choice Break-Up Song. Summer of that year saw the group perform at shopping malls throughout the USA and celebrate their one year anniversary with five shows in New York. The group also supported Cher Lloyd as an opening act for her 2013 I Wish Tour. 2013 also saw the release of the group's debut EP Better Together which peaked at number 6 on the US Billboard 200 in its first week. The following year Fifth Harmony also supported Demi Lovato on her tour. 

By 2014 Fifth Harmony had won MTV's Artist To Watch at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards - they therefore headlined the MTV Artists To Watch concert that year. They also launched their singles 'BO$$' and 'Sledgehammer', both of which were certified Platinum by the RIAA. In December 2014 Fifth Harmony performed at the White House for the National Christmas Tree Lighting. 

Reflections the group's debut studio album, came out In February 2015 and peaked at number 5 in the USA. 'The Reflection Tour' - Fifth Harmony's first major tour - supported the record's release. With its first leg making gross profits of over $1.1 million, the tour was a huge success. June of that year saw the single 'Worth It' featuring American rapper Kid Ink certified Platinum by the RIAA. The single also made the Top 15, and was performed by the group both on the Dancing with the Stars finale as well as on Jimmy Kimmel Live alongside Kid Ink in June 2015. 

Other Achievements: Alongside their success in the music industry, Fifth Harmony also support a number of charities and organisations aiming to support the youth. They partnered with the Ryan Seacrest Foundation in 2013; performed for patients at the Children's Hospital Los Angeles; took part in the Social Mania initiative (aiming to promote social media awareness); partnered with the Girl Scouts of America; and were announced in 2015 as ambassadors for The Cybersmile Foundation - anti-cyberbullying initiative.
