On June 23, Fifth Harmony performed at the San Diego Fair.
The group of five women won third place on Simon Cowell’s “X-Factor” television show in 2012.
The majority of the crowd screaming this warm night were children ranging from elementary school all the way to high school. Some kids were chaperoned by their parents because of the “free entrance” promo for kids that were 12 or under.
The energy was loud prior to the band’s dramatic walk-out, because of the group’s highlight videos being played on the jumbotrons. One clip depicted caused an uproar; it was when President Barack Obama introduced the group in front of his daughters, Sasha and Malia.
“Reflection” which doubled as their album title song released on Feb. 2015, was the inaugural song performed. The restless crowd lost their composure when Camila Cabello sang her solo. Her vocal range was wide and edgy. The R&B and Pop quintet performed the entire song on a chrome stair-platform which was themed to their album title. Some of their own personal experiences were written first-hand with one another and were reflective on some of the songs.
As the group walked down the stairs, this cued their second song of the night, “Going No Where,” which was a bonus track on their album.
Their performance of “Worth It” drove the kids wild being their hottest song to date and selling over one million copies in the U.S. The song’s gritty beat, Kid Ink’s raps, and mature feminist approach, make some forget that #5H are still predominantly in their teen years.
