Don't even get me started on how much I love Fifth Harmony. They were the best thing to come out of The X Factor USA (well, the only good thing, but we won't go there) have finally broken America's longstanding boycott against girl groups that has been in effect since the Spice Girls left the charts back in the late '90s. Fans of all ages just love them, and for good reason — they're amazing. This week, Harmonizers got an extra special treat when the group announced they'll be embarking on a mini 'Reflection' Tour this summer that'll take them across the USA. I don't know about you, but I can't wait to hear Normani, Camila, Ally, Dinah, and Lauren slay my favorite songs live. YAAAASS!
The Summer 'Reflection' Tour will kick off in mid-July in Louisville, Kentucky, and will make a whopping 28 stops across the country before it ends in New York City on August 29 (you know I'm getting tickets to that). I have to say, it's pretty impressive that Fifth Harmony has the stamina to perform so much, especially considering they've already toured the album once earlier this year. Of course, you've gotta strike while the iron's hot, and I'm totally ready to get out there and sing 'Sledgehammer' at the top of my lungs.
Here are the 7 songs I am LIVING to see Fifth Harmony perform during the Summer 'Reflection' Tour.
Obviously this will be on the set list, given that it's the title of the album and the tour, and THANK GOD because it's so, so good. It's so sassy and fun and a total bop. It's also a major fan favorite, so I can't wait to see the whole place go wild when this starts up.
'Brave, Honest, Beautiful'
This Meghan Trainor-penned track only appeared on the deluxe version of the album, but I don't know why because it's so good. Beyoncé and Rihanna name drops are only one of the highlights of this one, and I need to see this girl power jam live, for sure.
Ugh, there are no words for how much I love this song. It's a total bop - great beat, great (if not rather simplistic/not all that creative) lyrics, and yet another message of self-empowerment. It's like, yeah, I like this guy, but he'd better treat me like the queen I am, because otherwise, bye. This is gonna be so good live.
'Thinkin' 'Bout You' (Frank Ocean Cover)
Fifth Harmony has to do a cover live, right? It can totally happen? While they've done some incredible versions of some of our most beloved tracks, this is by far my favorite and really gives each of the girls a chance to show off their incredible voices. I'm praying this one manages to show up on the set list.
I'm not totally clueless, and I do have taste — I know the lyrics of this song are pretty awful. I mean, "Michelle Obama / Purse so heavy, gettin' Oprah dollars" isn't going to win any songwriting awards, but man, I don't even care. I need this song in my life and it WILL happen.
Another total JAM. This is yet another track that'll definitely be played considering it was a single (and another one co-written by Meghan Trainor) and it's the one I use to introduce anyone to Fifth Harmony because I know they'll immediately fall in love with them.
Tyga was on the album version of this track, but he's not necessary, really — this track is just fine without it. Any song that pays tribute to Mariah Carey is ace in my books, especially when you're singing high notes because you're that into some guy. So corny, but so good.
See you on your, guys!!
