Fifth Harmony (formerly LYLAS and later 1432) are a five-member girl group. Ages are between 15 and 19, the five members from eldest to youngest are Allyson Brooke Hernandez (born July 7, 1993 (age 19) from San Antonio, Texas, Normani Kordei Hamilton (born May 31, 1996 (age 16)[14] from Houston, Texas, Lauren Michelle Jauregui (born June 27, 1996 (age 16),[15] Karla Camila Cabello (born March 3, 1997 (age 15)[16] both are from Miami, Florida, and Dinah Jane Hansen (born June 19, 1997 (age 15)[17] from Santa Ana, California. Dinah Jane Hansen was the youngest member in the group; she is the eldest of 15 grandchildren and lives with 23 people (extended family) in a 4-bedroom house. Lauren Jauregui is the eldest of three children. Ally weighed only 1 pound 14 ounces at birth; by surviving overwhelming odds, doctors declared she was a miracle baby. Normani Hamilton's interests lie in singing, gymnastics, dance, and ballet. She has been competing in beauty pageants since she was a little girl. Just recently she was competing in the Miss Texas beauty pageant and made it all the way to the finals but instead insisted on competing for The X Factor.[18][19] Some reports indicate that Jauregui is dating Keaton Stormberg from Emblem3. Other reports indicated Normani Hamilton and X Factor teens category Arin Ray's "friendship" caused a feud with the producers of The X Factor and Cowell, stating that it's against the rules for any contestant to be in a relationship prior to the show.[20][21][22] At judges' houses, the group sang "Impossible" by Shontelle. Originally, the group's name was "LYLAS" (an initialism of Love You Like A Sister), but another group called "The Lylas" (which consists of four of Bruno Mars' sisters) claimed that the show stole their name.[23] Therefore, LYLAS changed their name to 1432 (which stands for I Love You Too), which was announced on the first live show on October 31, during which 1432 performed "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together". Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid were critical of the new name. Cowell suggested them to re-rename the group as there were too many numbers among the Groups category's names. During the first live results show on November 1, 1432 performed "Skyscraper" in a sing-off with Sister C. Cowell decided to send them through to the Top 12 and announced that they would be renamed by the viewers online. The name chosen by the public was announced: "Fifth Harmony." On the second live show on November 7 (Movie Themes Week), they performed "A Thousand Years", by Christina Perri, from the movie The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, having reached the fifth place in that week's results. On the third live show on November 14 (Divas Week), they performed the song "Hero", by Mariah Carey, and reached sixth place in the week's results. On the fourth live show they sang "I'll Stand By You" by The Pretenders. During the week 4 results show, they placed 7th on the leaderboard. On the fifth live show, Hernandez's grandfather died just before the competition began. Due to this incident, the girls performed Kelly Clarkson's Stronger in dedication to her grandfather. On the fifth result show they placed 4th on the leader board. During week six due to her grandfather's loss Hernandez had leave to go see her grandfather's funeral, resulting in missing practice. They performed two songs: Adele's "Set Fire to the Rain" and Demi Lovato's "Give Your Heart a Break". In week six's results, they placed in the bottom two and sung for survival with Mariah Carey's "Anytime You Need a Friend" and landed a spot in the Top 4. In the semi-finals stage of the show, they performed Ellie Goulding's "Anything Could Happen" and they also performed Shontelle's "Impossible" for the second time in the competition. Their first performance of the evening (Anything could happen) was "a finals-caliber performance" according to L.A. Reid and described as "Magic" by 2012's top-earning female entertainer Britney Spears.[24] Their second performance of the night (Impossible) received mostly negative reviews from the judges because the group had performed the song at Simon Cowell's home (although not on "The X-Factor" concert stage). Three members of the group (Camila, Lauren, and Ally) sang parts of the song in fluent Spanish. The following night's public-vote results got Fifth Harmony advanced to the Final 3 with soloists Tate Stevens and Carly Rose Sonenclar[25]. Unfortunately, after the first round of the finals they did not receive enough votes from the public to get them to the Top 2, and they ended up coming in 3rd place on December 20, 2012. Simon Cowell has hinted that both Fifth Harmony and Emblem3 will be signed to Syco records.[26], though the official announcement has yet to be made.[27][dated info]
