Review: Fifth Harmony Makes Debut Appearance In Singapore With The Last Show Of The 7/27 World Tour!

By  April 10, 2017

What a fabulous end to something magical.

At 7:15pm, the seats in The Star Theatre started to fill up one by one with excited fans who have been waiting forever for Fifth Harmony to perform in Singapore. It was a matter of minutes before the multi-platinum girl group was going to appear on stage as devoted Harmonizers make the finishing touches to their hand-held posters, hoping that their nicely decorated signs would catch the attention of the girls.

At exactly 8:18pm, the lights went down and the chants for Fifth Harmony echoed throughout the theatre. The time had finally arrived.

Donned in their red hot tour outfits, Fifth Harmony made a dramatic entrance with the female power anthem of 7/27, That's My Girl. As their fists punched the air in the chorus, an array of lights moved in the same fashion as fans happily joined in the iconic choreography of the song.

Lauren Jauregui shouted out the audience saying that this was their last show on the 7/27 tour and that Singapore had an obligation to be the loudest. The crowd roared in reply, knowing in their hearts that it is such a privilege to be present at the show that marks the closure of another significant chapter in the lives of the girls.

The ladies transitioned to throwback songs Miss Movin' On and Sledgehammer before pumping up the party with the cleverly-written Reflection and ever-so-filled with sass This Is How We Roll.

Heartfelt songs Scared Of Happy and I Lied continued to carry the set along. The lyrics of these songs resonated so well with the audience; Harmonizers sung them back to the girls with such raw emotions as they connected with each honest line.

The quartet belted out Write On Me before going backstage and reappearing one by one to sing their verses in No Way. They later united in perfect harmony in the chorus as they finished up their flawless performance of the song. Throwing it back once again to their first studio album, the melodic low-register We Know sounded unreal LIVE. The foursome cruised through the fan-favourite tune of their earlier days.

Dinah Jane took centre stage to address the audience by saying that she could not believe that the band was finally in our home, Singapore. She continued to engage the crowd by reading out signs that caught her attention like "your high notes are higher than my grades" and "#TeamValmani". She carried on by saying that although we are all strangers, to give the person next to us a little Squeeze. The girls too shared a moment among themselves.

BO$$ followed the cute moment and proved what a classic 5H track it is as it clearly reminds us all that these ladies truly embody the spirit of excellence in all they do like Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey.

It was Normani Kordei's time to have a little chit chat with the fans as she acknowledged that it took almost 5 years for them to finally make a trip to Singapore. With such a genuine heart, she thanked the Harmonizers present for making their dreams come true and that they would be nothing without the fans. She proceeded to ask the audience to guess the next song which was Not That Kinda Girl that had a really cool dance breakdown during the Missy Elliott rap.

The loveable girls started randomly singing "Singapore" and giggled about the fact that it's so funny to sing it as our country's name contained the word "sing". This is exactly why they are so precious :')

What's a concert without a little screaming competition? The girls split themselves into two teams. Team #Norminah took the side to their right and team #Alren was in charge of the other. Lauren was so adorable when she was hushing her side of the crowd because some of them screamed even though it wasn't their turn. After all the expansion of lungs, the crowd was sure ready to flex. What a smooth transition into All In My Head (Flex).

Our Polynesian queen Dinah grabbed a Singapore flag from the audience and exclaimed "don't mind if I do" in a cheeky voice. She continued to express her gratitude to the Harmonizers for being so loyal and defending them whenever annoying comments about them are made online. The family-loving gal gave a cute shout out to all their mothers for being so supportive and teaching them the ways of being Brave, Honest and Beautiful.

At the end of the song, Ally Brooke was seen wiping away tears from her face as she confessed that Dinah made her cry during the song. (Aww, can they get any cuter?) The oldest of the gang quickly moved on and thanked every single person of the 5H crew by name. She began declaring her love for the next song Gonna Get Better which is actually her favourite song from the album as it reminds her of a special memory.

Reality began to sink in as chart-toppers Worth It and Work From Home were performed. Harmonizers knew that the end was near and soaked in every single remaining moment left of the concert by dancing their little hearts out.

Obviously Dinah had to slip it in somewhere in the concert and asked everyone to support their girl Normani on Dancing with the Stars. Indeed, what a beautiful friendship all the girls share. They definitely represent the true meaning of girl power in a world where hate is so prevalent.

At 9:40pm, confetti showered the first few rows marking the official end of the night as the girls thanked everyone for their continuous support one last time before disappearing one by one down the stairs.

 

Y'all totally SLAYED it girls! It was definitely a dream come true for all of us and we can't wait till the next time y'all are back here again to tour 5H3 ;)
