As you're getting ready to ring in 2017, you may have turned on ABC's staple holiday special Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve, hosted by Ryan Seacrest. Then, you heard the host introduce the first performance as "one of Camilla Cabello's final performances with Fifth Harmony" on Dick Cark's New Year's Rockin' Eve With Ryan Seacrest 2017 on Saturday night. And it's true: Cabello is making her last appearances as a member of the fivesome group during the New Year's special in segments that were taped before she departed the band on Dec. 19 in Los Angeles, according to E! News.

So be sure that this is a reunion or sudden change of heart — the performance of three songs, including "Work From Home," was merely taped during a happier time for the band. And from the looks of the performance, Fifth Harmony was having a blast, just like old times. It's super sad to think that soon, the band would soon disband. At midnight on Dec. 19, Fifth Harmony announced via Twitter that Cabello had departed the band. The news took Harmonizers by surprise, since the women's band had a banner year in 2016, scoring a hit song with "Work From Home." Even days before the announcement, the group had revealed that a third album for Fifth Harmony was in the works, according to Billboard.

Sadly, that album — and any other future 5H plans — will have to carry on without Cabello, whose own statement implied that she will be pursuing a solo career.

But at least for one night — the last one of 2016 — Harmonizers can enjoy the final performances of Fifth Harmony as it was, with all five members singing their hits, and celebrating the new year (in advance).
