Former member Camila Cabello might have left the group, but the Fifth Harmony queens still owned the Singapore stage.
American girl group Fifth Harmony might have performed as a quartet for their The 7/27 Tour concert last Saturday, but former member Camila Cabello’s absence was barely felt. Thanks to the solid performance showcased by the four remaining members, of course.
Held at The Star Theatre on Apr 8, Fifth Harmony, one of the hottest girl groups of all time, attracted a crowd of nearly 4,000 attendees for their first ever concert in Singapore.
Here are the four things that took our breaths away at the Fifth Harmony concert.
1. Four powerhouse singers under one roof
Fifth Harmony, consisting of Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Lauren Jauregui and Dinah Jane, wowed us with their loud and powerful voices during the concert, leaving us feeling utterly impressed. This came as no surprise, as all four girls won third place on X Factor USA in 2012.
At 8.15pm, Fifth Harmony started the concert with their latest song, ‘That’s My Girl’.
Despite barely stopping for breaks throughout the 90-minute show, the powerhouse singers still maintained their stamina, hitting their high notes almost effortlessly. The four-piece girl group seemed to have improved vocally too.
In fact, they sounded as good as their studio versions while singing live. Did they perhaps eat their CDs for dinner?
Besides performing crowd-pleasers like ‘Worth It’ and ‘Work From Home’, we were also treated to their older songs, like ‘Miss Movin’ On’ and ‘Reflection’.
2. Business as usual, despite Camila Cabello’s exit
Despite former member Camila Cabello’s unexpected exit last December, the quartet didn’t show any signs of awkwardness in their song and dance routines.
During ‘Work From Home’, Lauren Jauregui took over Camila’s part effortlessly, as if the part had belonged to her. Although the group did not make any remarks about Camila Cabello, they thanked their fans for defending and supporting them despite the backlash they received.
“We are definitely making another stop here on the next tour!” said Dinah. Some good news for you, Harmonizers?
3. Fifth Harmony’s hot dance moves
Most of the songs in their set list of 18 songs included choreographed dance steps which required a lot of energy.
Singapore might have been the last stop in their Asian tour, but the members did not show any signs of slowing down.
The ladies gave their all with their sexy body rolls, synchronised dance moves, and constant hair whips. Their live vocals were also on point while they were dancing, which is not an easy feat for any performer.
The interactions they had with their fans, also known as Harmonizers, were one of a kind. They sang a birthday song for a fan’s 21st birthday, played a mini “screaming” game with their fans, and invited two young fans onto the stage.
Fifth Harmony member Normani Kordei embraced one of the young fans on her laps affectionately as they sang ‘Brave, Honest, Beautiful’.
Although Fifth Harmony left without an encore, their strong stage presence left us in awe. I am proud to say that my first concert experience was so ‘Worth It’!
