Fifth Harmony nailed their rendition of Mariah Carey’s ‘Anytime You Need A Friend’ on the Dec. 6 episode of ‘The X Factor,’ showing that they have the potential to win! Find out why I think the girl group should take home the prize on Dec. 20!

The final four contestants were revealed on the Dec. 6 episode of The X Factor, leaving Fifth Harmony to compete again Tate Stevens, Carly Rose Sonenclar and Emblem3 for the $5 million recording contract, which will be awarded to the winner on Dec. 20! I think Fifth Harmony NEEDS to win.

As Simon Cowell has said time and time again, there is a gap in the market for a girl group. Not since Destiny’s Child and The Pussycat Dolls has a girl group showcased the potential that Fifth Harmony possesses.

Sure, Fifth Harmony started off strong and then hit a rough patch, but this competition is all about grooming the perfect pop star. Oftentimes, a contestant is deemed the frontrunner from the very beginning and they end up losing in the end. Just ask Adam Lambert. A dark horse has a better shot at taking home the title!

I’ve watched Fifth Harmony improve themselves week after week and they absolutely NAILED IT on the Dec. 6 episode. Conquering a Mariah Carey song is a tough task. Not only did Fifth Harmony borrow the song, but they made it their own!

I’m sorry, but Tate and Emblem3 are very generic, copycats of artists already out there. Demi Lovato said it best the other day when critiquing Emblem3. She said, “It wasn’t the best. To me, honestly, I used to really, really love you guys, but to me I feel like it’s a downgraded version of The Jonas Brother five years ago.”

And yes, Carly Rose is great, but can she really become a successful selling pop star? It’s debatable.

My hope is that Fifth Harmony wins this season!
