Both having had their starts on The X Factor – although on different continents – British Pop Sensation Cher Lloyd and emerging American Girl Group Fifth Harmony drew a near-capacity crowd at The Phoenix Concert Hall tonight in Toronto.
The Show opened with a solid Set by Fifth Harmony, which consists of: Ally Brooke, Camila Cabello, Dinah Jane Hansen, Lauren Jauregui and Normani Kordei. After forming just last year, the Quintet are on the verge of releasing their debut Disc, the Better Together EP. Their Set saw them perform a mix of Covers including Lorde‘s Royals and originals like Miss Movin’ On and Me & My Girls. All solid. Their harmonic blendings live are just as good as it sounds on recording. It is rare that in a Girl Group, each of the Vocalists are as strong as the other. At one point they even invited Fans on-stage to dance with them!
Upon exiting the Venue back to their buses, there was a mass chaos of their young Female Fans forgoing their ability to re-enter the Venue, all crowding about to get a chance to meet their Idols and some were lucky to get their Snaps with them! Fifth Harmony‘s Better Together EP gets a releases on October 22, 2013 via Sony Music Canada. Check-out Me & My Girlsright here.
Cher Lloyd, known best in North America for her Hits Want U Back and Oath, is set to release her new Single I Wish ft. T.I. Although a bit mixed with some of her newer material headed a darker, edgier direction, Fans rejoiced when Lloyd delivered some of her more familiar Tracks. Before long, she had the entire Audience throwing their arms in the air.
As an Artist she has improved vastly vocally in a short amount of time, although one thing she suffers from is a lack of coherency in her Style as it varies from Rap, to tender Ballads and Dance-Pop. No one however can deny that talent, magnetic stage presence and voice, however.
Lloyd‘s new Disc is slated for an October release via Sony Music Canada. In the meantime, check-out her new Single I Wishright here.
See her perform a superb Cover of La Roux‘s In for the Kill below:
