As Harmonizers gear up to watch their favorite celebs at People’s Choice Awards 2017, crowning girl group Fifth Harmony is setting the stage for a new beginning. Ally Brooke Hernandez, Dinah Jane Hansen, Lauren Jauregui and Normani Kordei will perform as a quartet for the first time live at the PCAs.
Taking place on Wednesday, Jan. 18 from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, this performance will be the ladies’ first public performance as a foursome since their former member, Camilla Cabello, exited the group in December 2016. Needless to say, all eyes will be on the “Work From Home” singers as they take on the stage. The group is nominated again for “Favorite Group” — a category which they won in 2016. Should they win big once again this year, we’ll see and hear the ladies give their first acceptance speech sans-Camilla. The date of the show will mark exactly one month and one day since the split was announced.
This performance is an especially pivotal moment for the now-quartet of ladies because it will show how well Dinah, Lauren, Ally Brooke and Normani can work as a foursome. Harmonies will be changed, dance routines reconfigured and outfits re-coordinated.
“We are four strong committed women who will continue Fifth Harmony as well as our solo endeavors,” said Ally, Dinah, Normani and Lauren in a joint statement concerning the split on Dec. 19. “Harmonizers, we are in this together. We love you with all our hearts.”
Camilla released a statement of her own, writing to fans on social media that although the girls knew her exit from the group was coming, she wishes them nothing but the best.
“As sad as it is to see this chapter ending this way, I will continue to root them all on as individuals and as a group, I wish nothing but the best for them, all the success in the world and true happiness,” wrote Cabello.
Soon after these statements were released, the remaining group members posted a photo of them as a foursome on their Instagram. The fun photo of the girls in all red, signified that they’re reinventing and ready to take on what’s next — starting with the PCAs on Wednesday.
