The X Factor's Fifth Harmony Will Continue Working With Simon Cowell

It’s very beneficial to “team up” with Simon Cowell. The X Factor contestants formally known as LYLAS and now rolling with the title Fifth Harmony have landed a record deal with none other than their mentor label, Syco Records. In a surprise move, the girls are also signed with L.A. Reid’s Epic Records.

Reid often had trouble understanding the girls’ stage performances throughout the competition, frequently noting that for a group that had “harmony” in its name, the harmonies were not often present. However, the girls certainly over-achieved throughout the competition, beating out rivals Emblem 3, who were generally the highest-ranking group throughout the competition and who, subsequently, have also been signed to Syco Records. Having come together rather quickly and progressed beyond most people’s wildest dreams, I would not be the least bit surprised to see the girls continue to sing better, dance harder, and achieve some hits.

To help them work toward this goal, producer Julian Bunetta has signed on to help the girls create their very first album. Additionally, the ladies of Fifth Harmony-- Ally Brooke, Camila Cabello, Normani Hamilton, Dinah Jane Hansen, and Lauren Jauregui—will have a little help. According to Yahoo Canada, Autumn Rowe and Lil’ Eddie will also lend a helping hand to Fifth Harmony’s first studio album. Since the girls were just signed, we’re still a bit early to predict when an album we’ll hit the market, but if I had to guess, I’d say the freshman endeavor will street around the same time promotions for Season 3 of The X Factor hit.

In the interim, what do you think Vegas odds are Fifth Harmony will find themselves with a hit song?
