Camila Cabello isn’t the only member of Fifth Harmony doing a little solo side work before the girl group drops its sophomore album. Normani Kordei is as well. The 19-year-old singer steals the spotlight with a killer solo performance.

Like Sevyn Street and other female singers before her, Normani covers Troy Lanez’s hit single “Say It” which samples Brownstones “If You Love Me.” Like them, she puts a little girl power twist on the lyrics.

Girlfriend totally shines with her solo offering. If, and when, 5H breaks out, it’ll be difficult predicting which of the ladies will shine brightest. I always thought Dinah Jane was the Beyonce of the group, but it appears Normani could give her a run for her money. Give “Say It” a listen below.

The 10th annual Billboard Women In Music gala, taped over a week ago, aired this past weekend on Lifetime. The music bible bestowed “Woman of the Year” honors this year to Lady Gaga. She wowed the audience with an incredible performance of her powerful ballad, “Til It Happens To You.”

Others also recognized were Selena Gomez “Chart-Topper”, Demi Lovato “Rulebreaker”, Tori Kelly “Breakthrough” and Fifth Harmony for “Group of The Year.” The girl group beyond impressed me with their impeccable cover of Destiny’s Child’s ” Independent Women.” It was part of an acoustic medley which included “We Are Family” and their own hit “Worth It.”

Check out that amazing rendition below, along with other performances from the event.

Jordan Roseman aka DJ Earworm released his first original track weeks ago, but today he returned to his bread and butter. His annual United State of Pop video mashup, highlighting the top hits of the year, is hands down my favorite. Typically, he chooses the top 25 tracks based off the Billboard charts. This year, he went a step further and mashed up the 50 biggest hits.

The five-minute masterpiece titled “50 Shades of Pop” is “more eclectic mix than it was five years ago,” Earworm explains to Billboard about the diversity of tunes that blew up the charts this year. With that being said, Taylor Swift has a whopping four tracks in the mix. Close behind is The Weekend with three. Other artists with multiple offerings are Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Fetty Wap, Meghan Trainor and Ed Sheeran.

He even made room for Adele’s massive late 2015 entry, “Hello.” If you hated this year’s song of the summer, fear not, OMI’s “Cheerleader” is only shown/heard briefly. Check out this year’s offering below. It’s his best one in recent memory.

Taylor Swift Performs With Fifth Harmony & Little Mix

Throughout her 1989 World Tour, numerous artists have joined Taylor Swift on stage, either to perform or to sashay down the runway during “Style.” Fifth Harmony and Little Mix are no means the biggest stars to sing alongside the 25-year-old singer, but they certainly delivered a couple of the most entertaining performances to date.

Taylor could easily become a new member for each respective girl group. Swift fully committed with both numbers, learning the respective choreography for “Worth It” and “Black Magic.” Check out both clips below.

With each performance, these girls are quickly morphing into mini Beyonces. Especially that Dinah Jane. Their hair flipping and sashaying gets fiercer by the day.

Fifth Harmony absolutely slayed a Spanglish version of their hit “Worth It.” Though Lauren is not featured on the official audio, girlfriend gets to hype up the crowd in the beginning and takes the spotlight later in the performance. Ironic thing is, she actually speaks Spanish unlike some of the other members.

Also on hand at Univision’s Premios Juventud 2015 was Becky G– another young lady, I’m quickly becoming obsessed with. She brought out Colombian reggaeton singer J Balvin during her “Can’t Stop Dancing” performance. Why the track never broke the Top 40 is beyond me? It’s far catchier than the 18-year-old’s annoying breakthrough hit, “Shower.”

Check out both performances below.

I’m always down for a Spanish version of a track. It’s my lazy way of learning the language 😉

Fifth Harmony, who are currently riding high with their first Top 20 hit, recently released an español recording of “Worth It.” Some of the ladies add some Latin heat to the already sassy track. Dare I say, it even sounds better than the original. My biggest qualm is that Lauren Jauregui, who actually speaks Spanish, is not featured on the track.

Another complaint is that Kid Ink’s rap verses are still English. Couldn’t the label removed his part entirely or just enlist another rapper to deliver some Spanish rhymes? Give “Dame Esta Noche” a listen below. Be sure to weigh in if you like the new rendition.

It’s all about girl power once again for Fifth Harmony. The five ladies show the male-dominated Wall Street who’s “Bo$$” in their latest video. ‘Women In Power’ and ‘Feminism Is Sexy’ scroll on the NASDAQ-like screen as Dinah Jane, Normani, Lauren, Camila and Ally drop it like it’s hot.

The Cameron Buddy-directed clip is their best one to date. For once there’s a slight narrative instead of the girls just bopping around on a sparsely decorated set. To boot, they’ve never looked better. All of them look stunning, especially Dinah Jane. Her makeup and moves are flawless. Also worth a mention is Normani. Her slinky poses on her office desk are on fleek (God I hate that saying).

As a fan of the ladies, I hope this charts well. I’m a little surprised “Sledgehammer” didn’t perform better. “Worth It” is a wise choice as the next single. The sax-driven beat and hook are supremely catchy. Give their latest a watch below.

I wouldn’t say Thursday night’s results were shocking, but definitely surprising. I can’t believe the truly awful acts advanced, let alone escaped the bottom three. Instead, the ones that were cut were actually acts that didn’t make me cringe whenever they performed. What was America thinking? Check out all the results below, the Save Me sing-off and performances by Selena Gomez and Fifth Harmony.
