The band – Dinah Jane, Ally Brooke, Lauren Jauregui, Camila Cabello, and Normani Kordei – was put together by Simon Cowell in 2012 after they all separately auditioned for The X Factor.
But ever since Camila announced she was going solo in late 2016, there have been rumours that the band's days were numbered.
It looked like the remaining girls wanted to focus more on their solo careers – all four of them released solo singles in 2017.

The girls wrote that "in order to stay authentic" to themselves and their fans, they felt it was time to "go on a hiatus from Fifth Harmony in order to pursue solo endeavours."

They concluded the statement by saying they'll still be playing any upcoming Fifth Harmony shows they have scheduled, and sent fans their love.
Reflecting on the past six years since we started on X-Factor, we've realized just how far we've come and we appreciate everything so much, more now than ever. We've really had one hell of a memorable journey together and can't begin to express our gratitude to y'all for coming along with us on this wild ride!
After six years going hard, non-stop, we also realized that in order to stay authentic to ourselves and to you, we do need to take some time for now to go on a hiatus from Fifth Harmony in order to pursue solo endeavors.
We are all very excited and grateful to be able to take this time to learn and grow creatively and really find our footing as individuals. In doing this we are allowing ourselves to gain new experiences, strengths and perspectives that we can bring back to our Fifth Harmony family.
To our Harmonizers, thank you for everything we have been able to build as Fifty Harmony. With your love and encouragement we will continue to build on ourselves, support ne another in everything we do, and keep making you proud, each other proud and ourselves proud.
We do have some upcoming shows through the end of the year which will still happen as planned, and we can't wait! All our love, from the bottom of our hearts, Dinah Jane, Lauren, Normani and Ally xoxoxo
