ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: The five members of the American teenage girl group "Fifth Harmony" celebrated their release of their debut EP "Better Together" on Wednesday (October 23) in New York. The album hit the U.S. iTunes chart at number two on Tuesday (October 22), right behind veteran singer Katy Perry's "PRISM". After a celebratory photo-op at the city's iconic Empire State Building observatory, the girls said that they were ecstatic about the result. "Absolutely fantastic to know that something that we worked so hard on is doing that well," said group member Normani Kordei. "It's so surreal. It was like, I was looking at my iTunes page on my iPhone, because I was checking and it was like, Katy Perry us and Lorde. And we were like 'What are we doing here?'," another member Camila Cabello added. Fifth Harmony's members are Ally Brooke (20), Normani Kordei (17), Dinah Jane Hansen (16), Camila Cabello (16), and Lauren Jauregui (17). Naturally given their young age their music is about teenage topics, explained Brooke. "The topic of most of the songs are boys, boy problems and more boys, and having fun with your girlfriends not being afraid to let your hair down," she said. The group was formed during the second season of reality TV music competition "The X-Factor." Each member auditioned as a soloist but after failing to progress as individual competitors judge Simon Cowell formed them as a group.
