After forming and gaining fans on the U.K. reality competition music show X-Factor, Fifth Harmony raced to the top of the charts. The band released a debut EP followed by three studio albums, and all were commercial successes. The band's fan base rose to impressive numbers. After the band announced they were taking a hiatus in May 2018, those same fans reacted with great sadness.
The final concert for Fifth Harmony took place on May 11 and fans reacted on social media to express their disappointment that their favorite band was calling it quits for now. While Camila Cabello had already left the band in 2016, Fifth Harmony continued to perform and tour as a four-piece band.
Many fans took to Twitter after the final show and had a mixture of comments and messages for the band. While some sounded like they were saying goodbye, others said they were already waiting for a reunion while others just thanked them for all the music they put out in their short time together.
"The party is over, until next time Fifth Harmony," Twitter user 5H Access wrote. Another user, Phoemilla, left an image of a clock and said: "it's time to wait until Fifth Harmony reunited." Catie Turner, who was a Top 7 finalist on American Idol, wrote, "thank you for an amazing 6 years as a girl group that wasn't scared to embrace girl power and sexuality." Finally, one other user wrote that "everything good comes to an end" and said that Fifth Harmony is "always in my heart."
Billboard reported that Normani Kordei, Lauren Jauregui and Ally Brooke said that they are not breaking up. This is just a hiatus for the band as the women all want to work on solo projects. Cabello proved that success outside the band was a possibility with her debut solo album Camila hitting number one on the Billboard charts. Whether her former bandmates find the same success is yet to be seen.
