It looks like Camila Cabello and Ally Brooke Hernandez’s cooing of “anything could happen” has proven to be true on The X Factor…
During the Fox reality singing competition’s results show, it was announced that Cabello and Hernandez’s all-girl group Fifth Harmony has advanced to next week’s finals, along with Tate Stevens and Carly Rose Sonenclar.
The all-girl group – created and mentored by Simon Cowell – had to perform for the save in their quest to advance to the semi-finals last week, landing in last place when all was said and done.
But the ladies didn’t let their underdog status affect them this week, giving two strong performances on Wednesday night… Cabello, Hernandez and the ladies fittingly sang Ellie Goulding’s “Anything Could Happen” in the first round, and then tackled Shontelle’s “Impossible” in the second.
“It’s going to be difficult for my girls because the other three are so strong,” Cowell responded when ask by host Mario Lopez on who had the best shot to advance to the finals. “I do believe in miracles.”
And that’s exactly what happened: Fifth Harmony, the group that overcame harsh critiques from departing X Factor judge L.A. Reid, discovered they had knocked out the popular boy band Emblem3 for a spot in the finals.
“I’m very shocked,” said Reid as he learned the news. “Anything can happen.”
So the ladies of Fifth Harmony live to sing another week… And, they’ll have to work extra hard to beat the season-long favorites Stevens and Sonenclar, who’ve battled it out for the No. 1 spot week after week.
But as the lyrics to the song they performed this week go, “anything could happen!”
