Gather ‘round, children, and I’ll tell you a story about a girl group too precious for this world. Their name was Fifth Harmony and for about a half-decade, they gave us cretins musical genius we didn’t deserve.
In March, the group announced an indefinite hiatus, though it seems they’re back together again — competing against one another for an iHeart Radio Music Award. The category: best solo breakout!

Each of them have released their own singles in the months since their breakup. Here’s a quick rundown:
Normani released the top 10 single “Love Lies” and got a shoutout from Nicki Minaj at the MTV Video Music Awards.
Lauren Jauregui had several singles, including “Expectations.”
Ally Brooke released, “Perfect,” and Dinah Jane came through with a single titled “Bottled Up” in November.
The four former Harmonizers are not only competing against each other. Alongside them is Tiffany Young, a member of the South Korean girl group, Girls Generation, who has also started a solo career.
This whole thing proves one thing: the iHeartRadio Music Awards are just a messy awards show who lives for drama — and they’ve delivered it.
In 2018, Camila Cabello was nominated for the same award the rest of Fifth Harmony are wrestling over, but did not win, and she’s not nominated at all this year, either.
