When it comes to girl groups, The Spice Girls and Destiny’s Child pretty much set the bar for how much bootyliciousness and girl power one band can achieve. So what does it mean when one of the original girl group superstars dubs a brand new five-piece the next big thing? They’re definitely doing something right. According to Kelly Rowland, Fifth Harmony is posed to become one of the biggest girl groups of all time. The five-piece vocal crew was assembled during Season Two of The X Factor.
In a video released by the show, Kelly Rowland, who just joined the judges says, “It’s time for a new girl group! I wish girl groups to exceedingly go beyond what Destiny’s Child or TLC or The Supremes could ever do. You want each generation to get better and better, so I hope and wish them much more success.”
And seasoned X Factor judge Demi Lovato agrees, “They’re very humble and sweet. They have phenomenal voices.” The ladies of Fifth Harmony, Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Lauren Michelle Jauregui, Camila Cabello, and Dinah Jane Hansen recently put out an acoustic version of their debut single, “Miss Moving On.” If it’s any indication of what we can expect from their original music Kelly might just be right.
When Fifth Harmony announced the name of their debut single, they even posted a six-second preview on Vine to give anxious fans a taste of what it will sound like.
