Fifth Harmony - Who are they? We Have All The Facts For You...

Fifth Harmony perform on the X Factor this weekend. A little known five piece girl group in the UK who have the most amazing fanbase in the USA.

So you can get to know the girls before their X Factor performance this weekend we have put a few highlights together for you.

We were fortunate enough to meet the Fifth Harmony at the X Factor in 2012, they were probably one of the nicest X Factor contestants we have had the pleasure of meeting. Below is a photo we took of the girls before joining them at the Sony Party.

On X Factor the girls were put together from five single performers at the bootcamp stage of the show, going on to be mentored by Simon Cowell who had the group category that year.

The group consists of members Ally Brooke Hernandez, Normani Hamilton, Dinah Jane Hansen, Camila Cabello, and Lauren Jauregui.

Originally the group were named LAYLAS, however, another group had a similar name, they tried '1432', that didn't work, so changed to Fifth Harmony.

Their most memorable performance from X Factor has to be 'Anything Could Happen', it was a turning point for the girls in the semi-final, seeing them safely through to the final.

Finishing third on the show (as did One Direction in the UK) they went on to sign a joint deal with Syco Music, owned by Simon Cowell, and Epic Records, L.A. Reid's record label.

Their biggest hit to date 'Bo$$', is set for release in Britain on December 7, after netting 30 million VEVO spins and their highest Billboard placement yet. They've just released an amazing new song 'Sledgehammer'. Their first single was 'Miss Movin' On' and their first full album, Reflection, is due for release early 2015.

Luckily Simon had a sense of humour when the girls gave him a birthday surprise decorating the front of his house with toilet rolls and a Happy '87th' Birthday message.

The girls have won many awards in the US, including 'Artist to Watch' at the MTV Video Artist Awards.

One of the highlights of the year was appearing as the opening act on Demi Lovato's Neon Lights Tour.

Last night (Thursday) the girls had the great honour of performing 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' to President Obama at the Whitehouse Tree Lighting Cermony.

After their performance on Sunday night let us know on Twitter if you love the girls as much as we do.
