We finally got to hang with one of our favorite girl groups!
Fifth Harmony finished third on last season's X Factor, but like One Direction they're proving that you don't need to win a competition show to have success. The girl band recently performed their song "Me & My Girls" on the stage where it all started for them, and we got to chat about how they feel being in the spotlight and being role models.
"That's one of the best parts I think," Lauren Jauregui told us. "It makes everything worth it too," added Normani Kordei. "The most important thing for us is to be as authentic as we can. Not only as people, but also through our music," said Ally Brooke. "A lot of the songs we co-wrote are from personal experiences, it's really important to share that. And to let people know that it's okay to not be perfect, it's okay to be yourself and to accept yourself for who you are."
The girls believe there's always room for improvement. "It's a continuous [journey] of wanting to get better. We're always wanting to push ourselves so that we can do more and we can do better," Camila Cabello said.
Speaking of being in the spotlight, we wanted to hear their take on Miley Cyrus and her ongoing image transformation. "I love Miley," said Lauren. "A lot of people confuse the fact that Hannah Montana and her were not the same person. She was playing a character--she's an actress. I think it's really cool that she has the courage in this society with all the social media and people constantly attacking you for being a person. I think it's amazing."
Though they haven't met Miley yet, Fifth Harmony were thrilled to find out that they may have a chance to at Jingle Ball in December, where both acts are set to perform. "She's going to be on Jingle Ball?" the girls asked us, pleasantly shocked. "We're going to be on Jingle Ball! Twerk with Miley!"
