If there’s one thing we know about Fifth Harmony, it’s that their name is the, like, de-fin-ition of “truth in advertising.” Taking over the VMA All Access livestream’s “Pop Hour” segment, the five young women wasted no time proving their stripes, performing acoustic live versions of “Miss Movin’ On” and “Me & My Girls” — which essentially amounted to them drizzling some tightly layered, heavenly-as-eff harmonies all over our oh-so-receptive eardrums. That uncomfortable phrasing? #DealWithIt
After their two-song set, “The X Factor” alums sat down to chat about their first-ever VMAs excitement and took us behind the scenes of their red carpet shopping trip in some of Brooklyn’s cutest boutiques. Then, kittyoke happened, aka a karaoke-style guessing game where “We Can’t Stop,” “Heart Attack,” and other VMA-nominated tracks were sung to our ladies entirely in meows as they tried to name the tune.
Take note: According to all of the super haute, jaded people we desperately try to impress on a daily basis, kittyoke is gonna be HUGE in the spring of 2014. You’re gonna wanna get on board right MEOW.
Get more need-to-know info on “Kittyoke,” and tune into the VMA livestream after the jump.
Oh, and did we mention that all the meow’d-out songs were sung by some of our fave musicians?! Kicking things off, Bonnie McKee tackled a meow-laden rendition of Miley Cyrus’ summer smash, even though it woulda been just a liiiiiiittle teensy weensy bit more amazing to hear her throw down tha meowz on her own single, “American Girl,” ADMIT IT.
After her, Megan and Liz took on Demi Lovato’s “Heart Attack,” and “Pretty Little Liars”’s Janel Parrish tried her hand at Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble.” Both were, dare we say it… PURR-fect. SORRY, sorry, we know. That was uncalled for. But it was so good, that we were just FELINE it! We’ll show ourselves out.
…AND SHOW OURSELVES BACK IN ONCE MORE. Revolving doors, y’all, what now. Obviously, 5H dominated kitty-oke, which means that they’re the undisputed champions of cat-oriented karaoke-style song-guessing games — and not just because people don’t often play cat-oriented karaoke-style song-guessing games. Just wait till spring 2014!!
