Fifth Harmony Perform Taylor Swift’s “Red”: The Idolator Sessions

Red!

The girls of Fifth Harmony cut their teeth on The X Factor performing lushly harmonized (per the name) covers of pop hits, so when they stopped by Idolator headquarters in New York City, it only felt natural that they’d turn out a cover or two for your enjoyment — and to wit, the girls were willing to put their spin on Taylor Swift‘s album title track “Red.”

There are a bunch of things about this that are phenomenal: Camila Cabello‘s absolutely sickening vocal performance on the second verse; the way Ally Brooke demolishes those vocal runs in the last chorus; that funny moment between Camila and Normani Hamilton just before they finish the song — but the best thing about this video is how nicely the girls work together in synchronicity. They really do like each other as much as they claim to, and it comes through watching them together. 

Watch up top and revel in the greatness of 5H.

    These girls are going to be far in life! They have produced fresh covers which show how incredible, amazing, special and fantastic they are! I think they are going to be a big hit in 2013 and onward! They are just incredibly perfect and beautiful! I aint just saying this as i am a harmonzier but i have faith in them that they will become bigger than the spice girls and sell millions of records with the help of harmonizers (as their fan base has risen) I FLOVE 5H AND I HOPE THEY SUCCEED IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY
