Fifth Harmony - Miss Movin' On

Miss Movin’ On - Fifth Harmony |

Fifth Harmony, a girl group from the US, who are well known for competing on The X Factor US season two, came third overall. They consist of Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Lauren Jauregui, Camila Cabello and Dinah Hansen. They have become the first artist from The X Factor US to chart in the Billboard Top 100, and I hope they continue to succeed. They were competing against many great contestants, and it was such a great series to watch, but what are the finalists up to now?

Tate Stevens (winner), released an album and single, and charted well on the country charts; Carly Rose Sonenclar (2nd), the amazing 14 year old who is currently getting ready to release her first single (expect a chart worthy song, she's so good!); Emblem3 (4th), released a single called "Chloe (You're The One That I Want)" that made them the second X Factor US act to chart on the Billboard Top 100, as well as releasing an album that also charted well; Diamond White (5th) has been signed as well as playing minor characters in various tv series; CeCe Frey (6th), has some news that is yet to be announced, I'm hoping she has been signed as she has star quality; Paige Thomas (8th), has been signed, released a song called "Lolli" and apparently there's an album in the works; Beatrice Miller (9th), became signed in April 2013, but no more news; Lyric 145 (12th), released a single called "I Get It", along with a mixtape that I'm obsessed with, I am hoping for more releases from them in the near future; Sister C (joint 14th) released a self-titled EP, and I'm also hoping they release more in the future. I hope that all the finalists get a recording contract, as they are all amazing and I think it's going to be hard for the third season to top this!

"Miss Movin' On" was written by Mitch Allan, Jason Evigan, Lindy Robbins and Julia Michaels. The song is one of those songs that become stuck in your head after hearing it a few times. I feel that it isn't quite the right song for them compared to the amazing performances they did on The X Factor US... As well as that, the video isn't quite right either...

A performance and a narrative in one, this should get top marks, but if you have already scrolled down, you'll see that this isn't the case.

The performance side is sloppy, messy and out of sync. Come on, this is a girl group, who are bound to be compared to other girl groups, from The Spice Girls to The Saturdays, from Girls Aloud to Little Mix. The girls need to have choreography down to a dot, they need to all be doing the same moves in sync, or it turns out like this.

Not only that but it looks like five upcoming female artists who have collaborated for this one song, they all want the spotlight as if it's a competition and the winner gets a recording contract, it just looks wrong and unappealing.

The narrative attempts to bring it all back, but we're too lost by the awful performance scene to ever be entertained by this narrative, which focuses on the girls getting rid of the past and moving on; hopefully, to forget their ex-boyfriends.

Overall a song that still hasn't been released in the UK, but if it ever does, I so hope it charts well here. And a music video that probably looked good on paper, but in reality, the visual just fails to keep me interested. I'll be giving it kudos, though, based on this being their first music video, as well as that I hope the team behind them bring out a better second single video.

  1. Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with?
    I'm going to start my ownn blog soon but I'm having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because yopur design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking
    for something unique. P.S My apologies
    for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    1. Hi

      I use blogger, but it depends what sort of blog you're going for.

      Personally, I would try out each website first and find the right one for you. The one that allows you to do everything you want to do with it.

      Hope I've helped
