Fifth Harmony is performing at the 2014 VMAs pre-show to kick off a night of insane performances. In addition to performing, the girls are up for their very first VMA award in the Artists To Watch category. MTV reported:
2013’s VMA Artist To Watch winner, Austin Mahone, did the honors and announced the nominees for this category via Snapchat, which has Fifth Harmony going up against some fierce up-and-coming musical acts. The girls will take on pop-punk rockers 5 Seconds of Summer, hip-hop newbie Schoolboy Q, “Boom Clap” singer Charlie XCX and British breakthrough artist Sam Smith.
Whether the girls win or not, at least fans will get to see them perform.
