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

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.
