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.

Fifth Harmony's Ally Brooke: 'I Hated My Image'


Fifth Harmony

The singer, who found fame with her bandmates on The X Factor USA, may be riding high in the confidence stakes now, but that wasn’t always the case. Because of her previous self-doubt, 22-year-old Ally now relishes being on stage in sexy costumes, strutting her stuff with Fifth Harmony.

“I used to be very insecure,” she confided to Britain’s Metro newspaper. “It was awful. I used to ridicule myself for my image and personal things I didn’t like about myself. It means more to me than anyone will ever know that I’m confident and love myself now because I went through so much.”

Ally and her Fifth Harmony bandmates; Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane, Camila Cabello, and Lauren Jauregui, are currently enjoying chart domination with track Work From Home, which has reached the number two spot in the UK singles charts and hit number 10 on the US Billboard Hot 100.

Fifth Harmony Vow To Leave America If Trump Wins Election


Fifth Harmony

The Republican candidate is vying for a spot in the White House and has already been surprisingly successful in his campaign. However, he has also courted controversy with his suggestions on dealing with immigration including building a wall along the border between Mexico and United States.

Singer Camila Carbello, who has a Mexican father and was born in Cuba, has some strong views about Trump and insists the whole girlband are united in their decision not to vote for the billionaire turned businessman.

"All of us agree we are not voting for Donald Trump," she told Britain's The Sun newspaper. "Anyone who looks into him should know he had no policies that are worth anything. He has said a lot of things that are just sexist, racist and ignorant. He’s just a danger to the country.

Like Harry's British boy band, the girls in Fifth Harmony came together on TV talent show The X Factor - and quickly found success as a group.

As they prepare to release a new album, titled 7/27, in May (16), the young stars have revealed they're getting solid career advice from some big name fans, like Harry.

"I remember we were in rehearsals and he came up to us and told us as a group, 'All five of you should be on the same page and the closest things to each other, because around all five of you, there are gonna be people that are gonna come and try to snatch you, people are gonna try to break you guys apart'," singer Dinah Jane tells Entertainment Tonight.

Fifth Harmony Changed Single Name To Avoid Rihanna Clash


Fifth Harmony Rihanna

The American girl band had originally planned to call their latest release the same, but decided to alter it to Work from Home in order not to clash with Rihanna. However, they insist they don't mind giving in to their "queen".

"Well, our song was originally called Work and when Rihanna dropped, it was like, 'Hell no, can't have the same song as the queen!'" singer Dinah Jane told Billboard.com. "So we put in 'from home,' just added two words."

Work from Home is the first single from the group's upcoming second album 7/27, due for release later this year. The five-piece are hoping fans will be pleased with their new record, which Dinah said represents a "new era" in their musical direction.

Camila Cabello: "I Won't Be Kissing And Telling About Romances Anymore'


Fifth Harmony Austin Mahone

The Worth It singer, 18, shot to fame in 2012 when she and her bandmates formed the girl group on U.S. talent show The X Factor, but she wasn't quite prepared for all that fame had in store.

She dated fellow pop star Austin Mahone for most of 2014 before they split up, and Camila tells Teen Vogue the experience taught her to not be so open with her romantic relationships moving forward.

"I've learned that I don't want to be as open or public about relationships anymore," she admits. "In my first relationship, I thought I could hold on to the normalcy of just being like 'Yeah, we're dating', just like if it were high school and I was telling my friends. But in high school, there aren’t articles written everywhere when you break up and you don’t have everyone in the school coming up to you and asking what happened or sharing their opinion with you. It didn’t feel like ours anymore, it felt like everybody else’s."

Howard picked up the Powerhouse title at the event and appeared to be more than a little in awe of the girl power at Cipriani 42nd Street, stating, "This is such an honour to be in this room with all you wonderful, powerful women."

Lauren Jauregui: 'Youth Of Today Must Vote To Keep Donald Trump Out Of The White House'


Fifth Harmony

The former The Apprentice boss sparked a storm of controversy in June (15), when he announced his run for the White House and outlined plans to build a huge wall along the U.S./Mexico border to keep out illegal immigrants, sensationally claiming many are "rapists" and drug dealers who only bring crime into the country.

Trump's comments prompted a backlash from a number of leading Latinos, with celebrities including Eva Longoria, Ricky Martin, Pitbull and George Lopez all speaking out to chastise the outspoken Republican.

Jauregui, who is of Cuban descent, has now added her voice to those reprimanding Trump, insisting the tycoon is attracting the wrong kind of attention with his statements.

DELUXE EDITION • Track twelve... No Way • It’s insane how much we have been through with “No Way”. It actually was recorded about 2 years ago when we were starting to record the first album, Reflection. The second we got this song I remember listening to it over and over and over and over again with Victoria Monét singing the demo on it (who has one of the most beautiful voices ever) and I just connected so intensely with the lyrics. They were so raw and honest about a relationship that was just toxic but from everyone else's perspective and about how they know that they're made for each other and to love each other and to heal each other..but how that love is tricky to keep and have and hold. I just love the way the song takes you on an emotional journey and how you feel the pain of these people's indecision to love or let go. We were able to emote in a way we hadn't ever done before in our music and I think that was why it is my favorite because I felt at the time and every time I hear it now the emotion behind the words; and I hadn't felt that connected to any of the songs in that way before. I love the vulnerability and the reality of the situation. -Lauren
