Playing Fifth Harmony on Zayn Malik Leaving One Direction: 'It's The End Of An Era'

The ladies of Fifth Harmony were all the rage at the Kids’ Choice Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday, March 28. Ally, Camila, Dinah, Lauren and Normani took home the orange blimp for Favorite New Artist, a big honor for the band who was formed during season two of the US version of The X-Factor.

The girls expressed their sentiment to ET over Zayn Malik leaving One Direction, who was also put together by Simon Cowell but on the UK’s version of the singing competition show.

“We're saddened, you know,” Lauren Jauregui said. “Like Camila [Cabello] always says, it's the end of an era. One Direction was a huge phenomenon but we definitely 110 percent respect Zayn and his decision because health and happiness come first, always.”

When asked who they thought should replace the 22-year-old singer, the girls unanimously shouted “NOBODY!” before Camila added “One Direction will always be One Direction.”

As for rumors the band does their own hair and make-up while on the road? The girls cleared up that, sharing that it’s only partially true.

“If that were the case, we would not look good,” joked Camila.

“Well, we do our own hair but we don't do our own make-up,” explained Lauren.
