With their tea-party theme for their “Anything Could Happen” performance on Wednesday night, it almost seems written in the stars that Fifth Harmony is now the Cinderella story of “The X Factor” USA. They are going into the final round as the huge underdogs, but they are also going into it with arguably the most momentum out of anyone left. Can this carry them through? We’ll have a little bit more information on that in our contestant rankings a little bit later in the day.
For now, though, we just thought we would share that the girl group has even managed to impress the original performer of the song with the performance. Speaking out in a new post on her official Twitter, here is what Ellie Goulding (who is really only well-known in America for the song “Lights”) had to say about the girls taking on one of her other notable hits:
“Really impressed with
@fifthharmony rendition of Anything Could Happen on Xfactor USA!!”
Of course, the challenge for Fifth Harmony now is simple: finding a way to bring over many of the young voters who were cheering on Emblem3 to win the competition. If they can do that, then they actually have a very good shot at winning given that these are the votes moving forward that will probably decide who wins the competition in the end. They also need a few more musicalc moments like this one that show off their personality, and not just another big ballad.
Do you think that this one performance has made Fifth Harmony into a group that could feasibly win this entire competition? Be sure to share your thoughts below, and you can also read what Emblem3 is saying about their exit now over at the link here.
