One of the best band to have come out of the x-factor series is the Fifth harmony.
The band is based in Miami and is composed of Normani Kordei, Ally Brooke, Dinah Jane,and Lauren Jauregui.
Camila Cabello was also a member of the band until she left the group in 2016.
The group had a record deal with Epic Records and Syco Records after they finished third in the American singing series The X Factor.
After The X Factor, they released a single “Miss MovinOn,” and it was certified gold in the US.
The music video won the group an MTV Music Award for Artist to Watch.
They also released their studio album Reflection which was certified gold in the United States too.
All the members of the group came to the X Factor and auditioned as solo artists.
They were put together by Simon Cowell at the bootcamp,and it was the best decision Simon helped them make.
All of the girls come from different ethnic backgrounds,but one common factor about them is they can sing.
They also come from different places,and they have become successful to the point of working with some of the best producers in the music industry.
The band might be that famous,but there are things about them that even their fans don’t know about.
Here are some disturbing facts about the girl band.
1. Camila Almost Broke the Group
They are a legendary band and their fans the harmonizers weren’t glad that the group was breaking up.
According to critics, everyone thought that the exit of Camila was the end of the band,but it didn’t hold true,and the fans don’t feel the same way they did for Camila.
2. Dinah Would Have Succeeded as a Solo Artist
Maybe she can blame this to her poor memory.
Simon Cowell revealed that had she not forgotten the lyrics to her song in the boot camp during the X-Factor days, she would have proceeded as a solo artist and made it through.
3. Camila was Never Kissed Before the X Factor
Can you imagine this? However, she was 15 at the time she auditioned for the show,and it makes a bit of sense.
That is a little late for a first kiss though.
We all know things changed pretty fast after she started dating Austin Mahone.
4. All Yes’s During Auditions
When they individually auditioned for the X Factor, all of them got all yeses from the judges.
Their singing was pretty good,and when they teamed up together, it became even better.
5. The 5 minute’ Shower

For the girls, the case was a bit different. When they were on tour, they were allowed to take five minutes’ showers only and in a scheduled order.

She is one lucky lady to have seen the finals of the show.
She was eliminated from the X Factor briefly but was later brought back to join the other girls as a group.

Normani got a signed autograph from Beyoncé on her 17th birthday,and she freaked out.
8. Changing Names

One of the fans jumped on stage and pulled her hair.
