Fans React to Fifth Harmony Hiatus With an Outpouring of Thank Yous
Fifth Harmony may be going their separate ways, but their fandom is still fully behind them.
The group, who formed six years ago on The X-Factor, revealed via Twitter on Monday (March 19) that they're going on an indefinite hiatus to pursue solo careers. Though they recently canceled a previously scheduled Australian tour, they said they'll continue to perform together through the end of the year.
For many, the news was mere confirmation of long-brewing speculation: Rumors about a split have been circulating since late 2016, when Camila Cabello officially left the band, and all of the remaining members have already been featured on or released music outside of 5H. Lauren Jauregui, who is reportedly switching labels to pursue solo work, has appeared on tracks with Halsey, Steve Aoki, and Ty Dolla Sign; Normani Kordei recently teamed with Kahlid for Love, Simon soundtrack song "Love Lies"; and Ally Brooke recently signed with new solo management.
Nonetheless, Harmonizers were quick to show their support online. #ThankYouFifthHarmony was trending within an hour of the announcement.
Some simply expressed their love for 5H, while others showed their gratitude for what the women gave to them: Confidence, self-love, a sisterhood.
"From the bottom of my heart I would like to say thank you to @FifthHarmony for everything. I’ve gained friends, confidence, knowledge and amazing memories over these past few years.. thank you for teaching us how to love ourselves and fight for what is right," wrote one Twitter user.
Added another: "
#ThankYouFifthHarmony for teaching me that loving myself is important. Thank you for being part of my hardest part of life and helping me overcome it. Thank you."
