Before I get to the lyric video, can we discuss the adorable cover art for Fifth Harmony’s debut single? Perhaps they’re faking it, but they truly do seem like they genuinely enjoy spending time together. Just love them.
The lovely quintet just dropped the lyric video for “Miss Movin’ On.” In all honesty, it could pass as an official music video. It features the ladies holding lyric placards as they sassily lip sync the track. Even though I had a pretty good idea which girl sang what verses, it’s nice to have confirmation who received the most lines.
Clearly Lauren Jauregui is the producers’ pet, she’s everywhere on the song. Sadly, my girl Normani Hamilton is relegated to only a couple of background “oohs” and “aahs.” and perhaps five lines :( Oh well, at least she looks fantastic. Check out the cute video below.
Even though Fifth Harmony just dropped their first original track, I still love hearing the girls doing covers. I thought I was all caught up, but apparently I wasn’t. Clearly, I’m not nearly as hardcore a Harmonizer as I thought I was. Thankfully, my curling teammate forwarded me a couple videos that I missed. Check out these two clips of them performing Bruno Mars and Justin Timberlake covers with Boyce Avenue. If you’re not familiar with Boyce, their renditions have been used for a few So You Think You Can Dance routines. They’re pretty amazing.
“These girls are like sisters to us! We can’t believe we’ve known them and worked with them since their first performance ever together as a group. We met them on X Factor USA as their vocal coaches, under the guidance of Simon Cowell, and have stayed in touch ever since. We hope you love this video we’ve done together as much as we loved making it! :)” – Boyce Avenue
Harmonizers rejoice!!! The day has finally arrived. Fifth Harmony just released a short 30 second snippet of their debut single “Miss Moving On.” Such teases. Would it have killed them to drop the entire thing?
Based on the teaser, I think the track has potential. It has touches of a Kelly Clarkson’s angst-ridden anthem mixed in with some Demi Lovato realness. Definitely has potential to become a summer hit. The girls could be the breakout act from the second season of The X Factor if this skyrockets on the charts. Give it a listen below.
TGIF!!! Not just because the weekend is here, but because Fifth Harmony made an announcement their Harmonizers have been eagerly anticipating since they were booted from Season 2 of The X Factor.
While I thoroughly enjoy listening to all their covers including Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and of course Ellie Goulding, hearing them sing an original song will be interesting. I’m curious to know what sound they’ve decided on. On the flip side, I’m a little worried that I built them up so much in my head that anything will come as a disappointment. I hope not.
Ally, Normani, Lauren, Camila and Dinah revealed via Vine the title of their upcoming debut single. Based on the title, they’re going the tried and true route of a girl’s POV post breakup. Nothing translates to millions of downloads more than a jilted girl. Just look at Taylor Swift and Kelly Clarkson’s biggest hits for prime examples. Check out their cute announcement below.
I was a little worried no more amazing acoustic YouTube performances were in store for us after each girl picked a song for the group to cover. Thankfully, the girls eased my worries by uploading another kick-ass one. This time, they take on the title track from Taylor Swift’s current album, Red. Fans of Fifth Harmony know this is their second time covering Swift. 5H, then briefly known as 1432, sang “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” while on The X Factor. This cover of “Red” is much better.
As happy as I am to hear Ally, Dinah, Camilla, Normani and Lauren show off their covering prowess, I want to hear some original music from them. Emblem3 already has a new single out (“Chloe“) and Season 2 winner Tate Stevens is streaming his entire debut album over at Amazon. At this rate, 9th place finisher Beatrice Miller who recently signed with Simon Cowell’s Syco Records and Disney’s Hollywood label will probably have new music out before them. Are you getting as impatient as me? Check out 5H’s Swift cover below.
It wouldn’t be a week without a Fifth Harmony video. If it kills me, I’m going to make these girls happen ;) I know I’m not the only Harmonizer out there who feels this way. Right?
After hearing all the other girls’ choices up to this point, it was my girl Normani Hamilton’s turn to pick a song for the group to cover. We must be on the same wavelength, because girl knew exactly what I was craving… a little Rihanna. Not just any old track, but my current favorite. Haters can hate, but “Stay” is a pretty awesome track and a great choice to cover.
Being that it was her pick, Normani slays it on the verse of the ballad. The harmonies aren’t my favorite, but Normani and Lauren are everything during their solos. With each girl having picked a song to cover, I hope this doesn’t mean that we’re in for a dry spell until the girls debut their first single. Here’s hoping this isn’t so. Check out Fifth Harmony’s “Stay” rendition below.
It was bound to happen. After covering Lana Del Rey, Frank Ocean and Ed Sheeran, it was only a matter of time before Fifth Harmony did One Direction. After all, both acts came in third place on their respective X Factor seasons. Since the female quintet has a lot in common with their male counterparts, the ladies not only did one, but two renditions.
During an interview on the Kids’ Choice Awards orange carpet, an interviewer asked 5H to sing a 1D track. While they’re typically in unison with their performances, trying to decide which One Direction song to cover on demand proved much harder.
Dinah Jane Hansen suggests “Rock Me,” but gets shot down. Ally Brooke then says “Irresistible” but is ruled out as well. Camila Cabello also tries a stab at it with “Nobody Compares” but suffers the similar fate. After quickly debating, “Kiss You” is picked. Even though only a short snippet is sung, it’s pure teen on teen magic.
In a much longer performance, Fifth Harmony tackles “They Don’t Know About Us.” While it’s not as great as their previous covers (specifically their Del Rey one), it’s pretty good. Check out both covers below.
If loving Fifth Harmony is wrong, I don’t ever want to be right. Perhaps I’m blinded by my adoration for these five ladies, but they never cease to amaze me with their covers. I can’t wait to see what artist they pick next.
The X Factor quintet previously sang Frank Ocean’s “Thinkin’ About You” and Lana Del Rey’s “American.” Their latest YouTube upload features their incredible voices on Ed Sheeran’s “Lego House.” Once again, Ally, Camilla, Dinah, Lauren and Normani slay it. I’m not alone in thinking this. Even Sheeran loved it and tweeted “incredible” when he shared the video.
5H and their are people are smart for uploading all these covers. It allows them to get noticed by people who didn’t watch them on the FOX show. Whenever an artist tweets about their cover, it introduces them up to a brand new fan base. Pure genius. While they all sound great, Camilla shines the most for me in their latest video. That girl is phenomenal. Check out their rendition below and see if you agree.
